May Featured Menu Item – Banh Mi Burrito
This month’s Featured Menu Item is the Banh Mi Burrito from Pho King Kitchen and Food Truck. We all know what a burrito is – delightfulness wrapped inside a tortilla of some kind. But what in the world does Banh Mi Burrito mean? In a perfect world, it would mean “Feed Me Burrito” amirite? However, according to the internets; “Bánh mì (Vietnamese pronunciation: [ɓǎɲ mî]) is a Vietnamese term for all kinds of bread. The word is derived from bánh (bread) and mì (wheat, also spelled mỳ in northern Vietnam). The term bánh mì is also sometimes used as a synecdoche for a “Vietnamese sandwich.”
Here are the details:
Banh Mi Burrito
The Banh Mi burrito is a fusion of goodness. We are talking sautéed chicken breast in Asian sauce with pickled root veggies, Japanese mayo, jalapenos, cucumber, stir-fried veggies, rice and melted cheese in a huge, grilled flour tortilla. Garnished with cilantro.
If that doesn’t make your Pho King mouth water with anticipation, I don’t know what will. Also, and this is amazing, the details listed above are if you order the Banh Mi Burrito from one of the Pho King Kitchen food trucks at any of their many Valley stops. However, if you order the Banh Mi Burrito at their brick & mortar location in Scottsdale, you can Pick Your Protein! What?! The choices are of course the Badido Chicken Breast, Sriracha-Ginger Pulled Pork, Nine Spice Brisket, Tempera Tofu, or Lemon Grass Shrimp. Talk about choices! Wow! We encourage you to try them all. So head to Pho King Kitchen today, enjoy a Banh Mi Burrito and maybe accompany it with a beer or cocktail from their full bar. You’ve Pho King earned it! For more on Pho King Kitchen Click Here!
