Love the Bang Mi! The bread is amazing. I drive 15 miles across town for this sandwich, it is totally worth the drive.

I crave the croissants and banh mi from here. Cash only, so don't forget! Almond croissants are my favorite.

A colleague and I both claimed to have the source of the best croissant. When I tried one she brought from Trung Nam, I surrendered. I wish I could go there more often.

Our daughter, a St. Paul resident, surprised me with a visit to Trung Nam to buy croissants for breakfast. Heaven on earth! Chatting with others in line, one man had discovered it on Monday, this was Saturday, and it was his fifth visit! We tried...More
