The San Francisco Chronicle reviews our Belly Bun!

Sept 22, 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Food Critic, Marisa Lindquist shares our love for the Belly Bun… “Bun Mee: If I could knock on the door of Denise Tran’s Pacific Heights eating place, Bun Mee, at any hour and purchase a sandwich, rest assured that I would.  I’ve been dreaming of pork belly since my first visit, and because the menu boasts nine banh mi-inspired creations, it doesn’t appear that my Vietnamese sandwich dreams will end anytime soon.” You... Read More

The Examiner Loves Us!

SF Examiner writer Patricia Unterman is our new BFF after penning this unequivocal review of our labor of love: From my first bite of Hanoi-style crispy catfish banh mi ($7.95), I knew Bun Mee got it: hot, crispy, juicy fried catfish, crunchy, subtly tart daikon and carrot, thin cucumber, sprigs of cilantro, slices of jalapeño and an almost unnoticeable but essential swoosh of aioli in a tender roll. Unterman then tried every sandwich on the menu and, well, loved them all.... Read More


When 7×7 listed their top 12 cookies in San Francisco we were pretty surprised to make their list—not because we don’t make an epic chocolate coconut cookie, but because there are so many yummy bakeries and pastry shops in The City. But there’s no arguing with print (or your taste buds) so instead we’re just really flattered to be included along side Tartine, Miette, Batter et al. 7×7 put us in the number one slot, but make sure to work your way... Read More

Lost in The Larder

I always keep an eye on Grub Street SF and in the weeks leading up to my recent visit to San Francisco I had been tracking the development of Bun Mee, the Vietnamese Bahn Mi restaurant and takeaway in Pacific Heights. Spelt phonetically, Bun Mee ensures the correct pronunciation of the sandwich. Bun Mee had only been open twenty-one days when we visited for lunch, a steady stream of workers getting their lunchtime fix in this affluent area of the city collided with busy mums.... Read More

7×7: Love at First Bite

[via 7×7] Sara Deseran, 7×7’s resident foodie, writes about her experience on our chaotic opening day. Here’s a taste: Sometimes I go to a new restaurant and my blink instinct tells me that this one is going to do just fine, even in the dog-eat-dog restaurant world of San Francisco. Restaurants like this often are cheerful, with a gregarious owner at the helm. There’s no sense of self-importance, the price point is right, and everything’s tasty.... Read More

The New Fillmore

Owner Denise and her mother, Momma Tran Great reviews have been pouring in on Yelp and on food and entertainment blogs from GrubStreet to Daily Candy.

The former ice cream shop has been transformed into a petite restaurant... Read More

Thrillist Says, “Man Up!”

Thrillist’s mission is to uncover the city’s best food, drinks, gear and services, so we were …um …thrilled when they came back to Bun Mee to film a video recommendation in time for today’s grand opening. We made them our tasty Juicy Steak banh mi — grilled flank steak with lime pepper aioli, shaved onion, pickled carrot & daikon, cucumber, jalapenos, cilantro, crispy shallots and our special lotus root relish.  Read More


[via 7×7] A new Vietnamese eatery is hitting Fillmore Street this April Fools. Bun Mee is set to have a menu full of traditional and modern takes on street food, including banh mi sandwiches and a Vietnamese caesar steak salad with mixed greens, grape tomatoes, orange and grapefruit, and tea egg. Bonus: There’s delivery within the area. Thanks for the mention 7×7!  Read More

Sweet Words from Daily Candy

[via Daily Candy] You prefer to take the high road, but for your next meal, stick to the streets. Keep it real with Bun Mee, a new Vietnamese street fare resto opening in Pac Heights on Friday. The owner is a New Orleans transplant born in Vietnam, so dishes like glass noodles and a Saigon peanut rice bowl share the menu with fried catfish. Go the sandwich route with classic (steak with lime-pepper aioli, pickled veggies, and jalapenos) and not-so-classic (the Sloppy Bun with... Read More
