Lynn’s craving something crusty on the outside, and deliciously chewy on the inside. Deco’s found a spot in Davie that’s got something just as tasty.
Tired of the same old boring sandwich? Try an nam-wich instead.
Minh Do: “Vietnamese cooking is a French and East Asian combination. So you’re actually introducing something familiar yet very exotic.”
Take a big bite — at 545° Bánh Mì Café on Stirling Road in Davie.
Minh Do: “545 started with a passion for our childhood. We grew up eating street food in Vietnam, so we wanted to recreate something that’s here in South Florida.”
So — they brought over the Bánh Mì — made with French baguette.
Minh Do: “The bread should be crusty, flaky on the outside, but inside, airy and chewy. A little different than a traditional French baguette where it’s dense inside, this is more airy.”
They bake the bread throughout the day so you get it extra fresh. Then — they fill it with goodies.
Minh Do: “The filling inside is anywhere from a pork roast stuffing, BBQ pork, we also have grilled pork.”
From grilled chicken to one called “The Works.”
Andres Montero: “It comes with three different types of porks, cold cuts if you will. It comes with mayo, pate which is a French influence.”
Steamed pork, BBQ pork and head cheese all included. Then — all sandwiches are topped with veggies.
Minh Do: “Always goes with pickled carrots, daikon, cucumber, cilantro and a spice jalapeno, something like that.”
Not into pork? Try the Korean BBQ beef or stick to the vegetarian option with tofu.
Andres Montero: “The tofu itself is stir fried in a sweet onion sauce.”
The sandwiches are hearty but very light at the same time, so — you’ll probably have room for dessert.
Minh Do: “A lot of them are made with beans, a lot of made with coconut milk, rice, different pudding types. So we have a case for desserts that my mom actually makes here every single night, so in the morning, you always have fresh dessert.”
Andres Montero: “What we have here is our number one selling dessert. It’s half and half and hazelnut cream, the bottom, the red that you see is tapioca. And inside each tapioca is water chestnuts.”
Enjoy a bubble tea, have a smoothy — the options are endless.
Best part — everything is under $8.
Minh Do: “We cook with passion, and so you can see it’s authentic, how we would eat, and if my mom doesn’t like it — it never makes on the shelf.”
