Quôc Húóng Bahn Mi Fast Food (Doraville, GA)
5150 Buford Hwy NE, Doraville, GA 30340
Quôc Húóng Bahn Mi Fast Food is a small Vietnamese hole-in-wall restaurant in an Asian strip mall on the outskirts of Atlanta. It is full of first generation Asian immigrants as well as some second generation Asian Americans. The menu is classic Vietnamese food, including various types of noodle soup (such as Pho), bun, and Bahn Mi sandwiches.
I start out with Vietnamese egg roles ($5.50), a huge portion of small crispy deep-fried “lumpias” which only have dough and meat and are mainly salty. I also get a Bahn Mi Thit Nurong or Grilled BBQ Pork sandwich ($3), which is their most famous dish. The bread is very dry and the modest amount of meat is not particularly tasty.
I might have caught them on a bad day, but I found it very disappointing.
