We were looking for something quick and easy for lunch so decided to try Dijon Kitchen. It’s a small mom and pop Vietnamese shop that’s located next door to Caffé W.
We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 1:45pm) and it wasn’t busy. It’s a tiny shop but the one worker was very friendly and let us know it would take about 10 minutes to make our order.
The menu is small with noodle soup, banh mi, fresh rolls, big bowls and drinks.
There’s two size options for their banh mi’s ($6.50 for 8″ and $8.00 for 11″); first time I’ve seen that offered.
Avocado mango smoothie ($2.99)
They were having a drink combo so we decided to try one of their smoothies. Decent but I wanted it to be a bit thicker and creamier.
Garlic beef banh mi ($6.50)
Marinated ground beef with pickled carrot, radish, cilantro, lettuce, jalapeno and hoisin mayo sauce. Bread had a good crunch to it and the beef was excellent. The lettuce isn’t traditional but adds some extra healthiness to the banh mi. No heat from the jalapeno.
BBQ pork summer roll ($6.50 for 2)
BBQ pork was tender. The rolls were a good size; almost could be considered jumbo. I had a bite and it tasted fresh.
Not too many Vietnamese options in the area but I would come back to see how their pho/BBH is.
