Nom Nom is a food truck from the Los Angeles region that is “bringing Banh Mi to the masses”.  It was started by two UCLA undergrads and was featured in the “Great Food Truck Race” on the Food Network.  The truck won second place.  Nom Nom bought a second truck which now caters to the San Francisco region.

In San Francisco, the usual lunch spot is in front of the 101 California building.  This happens to be less than 10 minutes from my workplace.

I went with a co-worker and ordered a Grilled Pork Banh Mi with some extras: Pork Liver Pate and a Fried Egg.  The ingredients were fresh.  There was an abundance of carrots and daikon with a generous amount of nicely seasoned grilled pork.  The Pork Liver Pate spread was tasty.  However, adding the Fried Egg was a mistake because the egg yolk eventually ran all over the sandwich and took over the wonderful fresh flavors of the Banh Mi.

The Banh Mi was a bit expensive at $7 with extras at $2 a pop.  You can definitely get cheaper Banh Mis in San Jose or Chinatown.  I guess the hype is what you’re paying for since Nom Nom is a well-known truck.
