Popular Vietnamese Sandwich Joint Banh Mi Thit Has A Spin-Off Beef Pho Restaurant, Prices From $6
Fans of banh mi might have heard of Banh Mi Thit by Star Baguette on Geylang Road. The popular eatery, co-owned by Singaporean Lim Gee, 59 and his Vietnamese wife Jessie Le, 39, has drawn crowds with its delish Vietnamese sandwiches – crafted with baguettes that are freshly baked in-house – since opening in 2018. Four years on, and the brand has since expanded to four franchised outlets across the island.
The enterprising couple is now offering another well-loved Vietnamese dish: pho bo (beef noodle soup), from a 54-seater air-conditioned eatery (no service charge, no GST) a couple of doors down from Banh Mi Thit’s original Geylang outlet. Star Pho Le Beef Noodle Soup quietly opened last December.
Jessie’s cousin Nguyen Trong Han, 28, heads the kitchen at the new joint, which specialises in robust Saigon-style pho native to their birthplace, Ho Chi Minh City.
