Erica and I were finally fortunate enough to visit Yum-mi Sandwiches in the Mills 50 district. We’ve made a few attempts to dine in this modern space, but we never seem to make it before closing time— definitely more of a lunch place, but a great meal nonetheless. It’s a clean and modern fast casual restaurant. It was quite the happening place on Saturday during lunch time. We were drawn to it initially based on location and the exterior appearance, not to mention who wouldn’t want to go to a place called yummy?
I honestly couldn’t say what I was expecting, but Vietnamese sandwiches was definitely not what I anticipated. I will admit that at first I wasn’t super excited about the thought of bean curd and vermicelli. It sounded like an unlikely combination for a sandwich, particularly when accompanied by jicama and tofu. I am so glad I got past it and ordered the veganism, because it was a total party in my mouth. I loved the fluffy white bread and the surprise jalapeño (no worries, it’s on the side) and cilantro to add some zest. Erica had the tofu [sandwich] and the chicken and asparagus soup. Not a crumb was left.
The icing on the cake was the boba fruit freezers that followed. They definitely don’t skimp on these! They were thick and flavorful and overflowing with tapioca and lychee. We couldn’t even finish them! Definitely a rich treat, but it never hurts to indulge once in a while.
