Simplicity is the essence of sophistication
-Leonardo da Vinci
Our vision for our space was clear - we knew that we wanted simplicity to define our food and for sophistication to be echoed through our presentation. With that, the seed of Bánh Mì Très Bon was planted. Before we could move forward and nurture that idea, we needed to travel backwards - all the way back to the basics.
Food can have too many components, be overdressed and be over-thought and complex. We've learned from our families generations past that complexity has nothing to do with Vietnamese cuisine-a reminder that simplicity is at the heart of the food. With that thought, we stripped away all the "fussiness" and "fusion" and focused on elevating the ingredients and letting them shine. What you will find is pure and genuine Vietnamese food created with the greatest intent to offer our guests fresh, while maintaining familiar flavours that will delight the palette.
We also considered presentation...how do we maintain the integrity of the food and create the sophistication we envisioned? We looked at our history. France played a significant role influencing our cuisine with the presence of the French baguette, pastries, and pate. Along with the food, the French inspired us to eat with our eyes, creating respect for how the food was prepared and how it was presented.
With the influences from France impacting Vietnamese cuisine, the integration of both cultures melded seamlessly in our vision. Thus, as our guest, we hope to entice you through your senses and charm you through your experience at Bánh Mì Très Bon .
