Meet Bùn u Bakery: A bakery dedicated entirely to bánh mì in Geelong

Serving delicious street eats for under $8!

Say goodbye to those homemade soggy sandwiches and a big hello to delicious lunchtime bánh mì – AKA the most vibrant and delicious sandwich in the world!

A saviour for when your paycheck is stretched a little thin, this crunchy French baguette is traditionally filled with a colourful combination of carrot, coriander, chilli, cucumber and either chicken, roast crackle pork, or simple vegetarian fillings.

It’s the perfect balance of richness, acidity, texture, freshness and spice. In short, everything you could ever want in a sandwich and that’s why we’re pretty damn excited that a new store has opened, devoted entirely to the humble Vietnamese roll.

The newest addition to Geelong’s love affair with bánh mì, Bùn u Bakery on Separation Street (previously Little Boot Café) are your new go-to for affordable and delicious lunches during the week.

Here, you’re spoiled for choice with seven varieties of bánh mì on offer, all for under $9. There’s roast pork, marinated BBQ pork, lemongrass BBQ chicken, and beef meatball, all for $8 or the cold cut meats, tofu for the herbivores and even a breaky Vietnamese sandwich with egg for $7.

Affordable, fast and most importantly, delicious, this little gem is proving to be quite popular with the locals, freshly baking their buns daily and completely selling out of bánh mì every day since opening their doors.

Soft and crunchy; salty and sweet, there’s nothing more satisfyingly foodie-approved for less than a tenner. You can thank us later.

Along with their glorious bánh mì rolls, you’ll also find an abundance of sneaky extras to round out your meal, like sav in batter, dim sims, spring rolls, baked pastries, cakes and salads, as well as coffee using DC Coffee beside.
