Saving money? Treat yourself to a free lunch at this exciting collaboration between Banh Mi Stand and Vietnam Airlines. They’re giving away free banh mi and Vietnamese coffee to the first 200 people on Wednesday February 28. Doors open at 10am, making this the perfect place for a mid-week brunch.
Free Banh Mi – Banh Mi Stand x Vietnam Airlines
For one day only, this hole-in-the-wall shop on Flinders Lane is serving up a bespoke Banh Mi Bonanza menu. The menu takes inspiration from key destinations around the world, like Paris, London, Frankfurt and Delhi. You can fly to all of these destinations from Melbourne with Vietnam Airlines.
The French-inspired banh mi is filled with duck confit and plum sauce. The German option features pork sausage, salted cabbage and crunchy chilli. Meanwhile, the London banh mi is inspired by a classic British Sunday roast, with rare roast beef and onion jam. Finally, the Indian banh mi has turmeric cauliflower and kasundi. Of course, you can also tuck into an OG Vietnamese banh mi, filled with Hanoi cha com, a pork and rice mix, served on Hai Phong pate.
There’s a limit of one banh mi and Vietnamese coffee per person to the first 200 visitors.
This collaboration is celebrating Vietnam Airlines’ Transit Tours of Vietnam. Travellers flying from Melbourne to Europe and Asia can take part in free Transit Tours of Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City when flying through Noi Bai airport or Tan Son Nhat airport.

For transit times longer than eight hours, hotel accommodation is also provided.”
