Take a Long Sip at Saigon’s Banana’s Juice Shop
“You know what would go well with this banh mi?”
“A banana smoothie!”
Banana’s Juice Shop tl;dr
- So many fruit choices
- Near a lot of other spots to eat food
- Super cheap and super worth it!
As we looked for a place to eat our banh mi, we decided to check out another of Van’s recommendations, Banana’s Juice Shop, a local juice/smoothie bar down the street from our banh mi restaurant.
For $25,000 VND or slightly more than $1 USD, you have the options:
- Get a large refreshing smoothie made out of one fruit
- Get a large refreshing smoothie made out of combination of fruits
- You can make your very own concoction for a bit more
There menu and options is endless. The ones they offer alone is enough to give a person pause but combined with your own personal taste…. The choices are endless! I ultimately ended up going with a strawberry, banana and guava smoothie and JM had an avocado smoothie (he likes to tell the story of how his parents call it baby poop). Both smoothies were super large and topped with fresh pieces of the respective fruits we selected.
Since the smoothies took a bit of time to come out, we ended up eating our banh mi while waiting and people watching from our street side table. It was a nice way to spend the hot afternoon after learning so much about local history. It was a great day!
If I could go back to this place everyday I would have. I only wish I wasn’t so full or I would have tried the durian and strawberry version. I bet they are all amazing! One of these days!
