Vietnamese Tacos - Banh Mi Boys

While I was in Toronto a couple weeks ago, J and I were wondering around the city, and we came upon this fast food joint called: Banh Mi Boys. J had tried their Vietnamese buns before and found they were quite good. I refuse to pay more than $2 for a Viet Bun, because that is what I'm used to paying. What sort of meat are they serving in the buns for $1.50? Who knows! But it tastes damn good! 

Anyway, we were interested in a little snack, so we decided to give the tacos a try. 

We ended up ordering: 
Kalbi Beef
Pulled Pork

As said on their menu, their tacos are served with cabbage slaw, kimchi, pickled carrots and cilantro. It sounds like an odd combination, but it works! We order them without cilantro, because I hate it. Just can't stand the stuff. 

My favourite was easily the squid. It was sort of like fried calamari. What was also good about the tacos, was that the pitas were homemade. 

If you're ever in Toronto, and you're walking around Queen street west, stop by their place and check them out! It's more of a fast food joint, so don't expect anything too fancy with their sitting area. 

The tacos were $3.99 each.
