The Bahn Mi Shop is a brand-new pop-up debuting today, Tuesday, January 5.
You’ll find The Bahn Mi shop at Piccalilli, the Asian fusion restaurant in downtown Culver City. A temporary concept, The Bahn Mi Shop has a simple menu: four types of bahn mi, along with green papaya salad, brussels sprouts with Korean chili and corn nuts, and two house-made spritzers (fresh lemonade and fresh ginger ale).
The pop-up came about due to the popularity of the eatery’s Vietnamese sandwiches. Each sandwich — choose from pork belly, lemongrass BBQ chicken, crispy tofu, or fried egg — comes with pickled daikon and carrot, Thai herbs, and sambal aioli on a sesame sourdough baguette, with nuoc mam and hoisin vinaigrette on the side, and a serving of house-made potato chips.
Piccalilli and its pop-up are located at 3850 Main Street, Suite A, in Culver City’s downtown district. Their offerings are available for takeout, or for delivery via Postmates, GrubHub, and UberEats. Hours are 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
