Hello Nam Sandwich Shop

Say a BIG HELLO to Nam Sandwich Shop (@NamSandwichShop) – a friendly little addition to the Queen West / Trinity Bellwoods area. Being opened to the public since last summer, this shop specializes in well of course sandwiches – specifically Vietnamese street food and other delicacies to their ever changing menu. During my visit, I quickly established that patrons mainly stopped by to do a quick grab and go.

Love the exposed brick walls and wooden tiles in the ceiling. This sandwich shop sits around 20 people. Few tables around and a bar along the front

Sandwich Menu – Unfortunately, their fryer wasn’t working the day I visited so I was unable to check out their yam fries!

Bao / Rolls and Beverages menu

Here’s what we ordered:

{Left} Minty Lemonade $3.00 / {Right} Thai Iced Tea $3.00

Pork Belly Bao (Steamed Bun) $4.00

  • comes with hoisin sauce, cucumber and scallions

Grilled Beef Bao (Steamed Bun) $4.00

  • comes with hoisin sauce, cucumber and scallions

Tiger Shrimp Sandwich ($9.00)

  • Shrimp, coconut flakes, pickled daikon radish, carrot, cilantro & cucumber

Lemon Grass Grilled Chicken Sandwich ($6.00)

  • Soy lemon grass grilled chicken, pickled daikon radish & carrot, cilantro & cucumber

Overall, there were some things we enjoyed more than others. For a starter, my friend loved the grilled beef bao but didn’t enjoy her tiger shrimp sandwich which she thought was dry and I could see why with the shrimp being deep fried and having a lot of bread  (with not much sauce going on).  I on the other hand enjoyed my fatty pork belly bao (come on!) and the grilled chicken sandwich on a freshly baked and lightly toasted bread. They added a sauce to the grilled chicken along with all your hearty veggies! I even packed the grilled chicken sandwich for my mom that evening and she enjoyed it as well!


This meal was complimentary but Foodinthecitytoronto.com remains unbiased in our content.
