BIZNOTE FOLLOWUP: Soft open, opening dates for Banh Mi XO

(Photos courtesy Banh Mi XO)

Two months ago, we told you about Banh Mi XO, coming to the former Indulge Desserts and Stuffed Cakes space at 9003 35th SW. Today we got an update from proprietor Guy Nguyen: “We are set for soft opening this Saturday and Sunday with a limited menu (signature Banh Mi sandwich, Bun (rice noodle) salad bowl, plus bubble drinks and Vietnamese Phin coffee.” Guy sent photos and added, “We do have a bar-style sitting area inside, but space is limited.”

After the soft opening, the official opening is set for December 1st. Hours will be 9 am-4 pm daily (those are also the hours for this weekend’s soft open). You can see the full menu for Banh Mi XO here and here.

    This is wonderful. It is quite near me. I will certainly try them for lunch soon.

    Hopefully their bread supplier can meet the new demand….

    • Abc November 23, 2023 (12:13 am)

      They will bake their own bread onsite fresh daily.

    The one thing I’ve missed about working in the office is running across the street for a tofu banh mi.  I’m so excited. I’ll be a frequent visitor!

    Very excited! Hours of 9-4 basically means I’ll never be able to go, will night time hours be available in the future?

    My family stopped in for lunch yesterday (Sat) early on.  Beautiful set up.  Liked what we had so much, we decided to go back there for dinner.  They were also offering free beverages today, I’m told the bubble tea was excellent.  I took a couple of sips of hubby’s coffee, had delightful caramel notes to it.  A welcome addition to the neighborhood.

    Bummed…. Was VERY excited to try and they suddenly decided to close 2 hours early. If you plan to try today, hold your breath.

    Oof. $7 for a Thai Tea, or $8 w/boba? Nice dine-in restaurants don’t even charge that.

  • H.V. November 28, 2023 (10:14 am)

    This is ridiculous what they set their menu prices at. Almost $10 a banh mi and it doesn’t even have the Vietnamese deli meat options.The grilled pork is good, but $10 for a sandwich that Viets won’t even buy.

    Here at 2:30 on the 3rd and they are not open. 🙃

  • J.R. December 4, 2023 (12:20 pm)

    Went today (Monday) at 11:30am and they weren’t open either! They should update their hours on Google Maps if they aren’t officially open yet. 

  • Barbara December 5, 2023 (12:35 pm)

    Also tried to go 12/5 at 12:30 and door was locked.  I’m very hungry!

    Saw this note on the door last week.  Looks like they’re figuring things out.  (Sorry about the bad photo reflection.)

Sorry, comment time is over.
