New Vietnamese Banh Mi and Taiwanese steamed buns restaurant coming to Mississauga


Published January 8, 2021 at 11:26 pm


Those who love Vietnamese cuisine have a lot to look forward to with this new restaurant opening soon in Mississauga.

Bao Sandwich Bar, which specializes in Vietnamese sandwiches and Taiwanese steamed buns (known as banh mi and Gua Bao), is set to open sometime this spring.

The restaurant serves a number of bao (house-made steamed bun) and baguette sandwiches, including chicken katsu, Seoul beef, spicy pork, pork belly, duck, fried pollock, avocado and sriracha tofu, with ingredients made in-house.

Side options include fries, spring rolls, poutine, wings, and salad.

“Bao Sandwich Bar takes on a modern approach to a variety of Asian cuisines, focusing on traditional staple foods,” the restaurant says. “This food style has since exploded to ‘foodie’ culture through increased exposure.”

It’ll open at 4310 Sherwoodtowne Blvd, located near Hurontario and the 403 — replacing popular vegan cafe The Cold Pressery, which was forced to close down in December due to the pandemic.

Bao Sandwich Bar currently operates one other location in Waterloo.
