In 1994, the Truong family opened its doors for the first time on S. Grand Blvd as a Vietnamese Specialty Sandwich shop, appropriately named BANH MI SO #1 which is translated to mean "# 1 Sandwich". Word quickly spread throughout the Vietnamese community praising the homemade delicacies of this small family take-out. Soon patrons began requesting the much craved SPRING ROLLS that have made BANH MI SO #1, the crown jewel of Vietnamese cuisine. In 2000, BANH MI SO#1 expanded its facility to accommodate the demands of its patrons with a new dining room, outdoor patio, and private room for parties. Today, it is known as BANH MI SO#1 - SAIGON GOURMET.
