Lula Banh Mi & Bakery
Megan Elizabeth Katz
So good! I got the egg rolls and pork banh mi. Egg rolls were made fresh and they reminded me of the ones my Vietnamese coworker makes for me. They were hot, crispy, and flavorful. The banh mi was extremely delicious. Even my husband thought it was good and he's a super picky eater. Next time I'll ask for extra cucumber, but that's just my personal preference. A must try!!!! Update: came back a second time once I realized they make their baguettes from scratch so I could fully appreciate the food. Some how it's better the second time around
Everything I had was so delicious. The cold cut classic Bahn Mi, the spring rolls, and the grilled pork & egg roll rice dish were amazing! Definitely give this place a try, I highly recommend it!
Love me some good Viet cuisine. Quick fast fresh quality foods conveniently located across from the Carolina Place Mall. Not to mention delicious sweets baked and made to perfection. Their drinks are also super yummy. Ive had their watermelon green tea and Vietnamese coffee and loved both. Cant go wrong with anything you order here. I definitely think youre better off getting your macarons here than Amelies. Their banh mis hit the spot and their noodle egg roll plate hit as well. Their egg rolls are chefs kiss with thin layers to make for an extra crispy fresh bite each time. Love that its family owned and they always have good music playing. Such a beautiful mural and cute decor. Much more love put in each item on the menu than other places. Well worth every penny!
Had the grilled Pork Banh mi and pork spring rolls. I was impressed with the overall size and flavor and it seemed more like a family owned place which is great. You have the option to get the bread toasted and I chose not too. They use a slightly different bread than typical Bahn mi restaurants as its more like a fresh French bread which is great. Spring roll was out for lunch for anyone for a quick bite togo which is smart, it was ok, there definitely was some really good flavor but not completely balanced throughout the roll. The dipping sauce had a bit too much soy for myself but still good to dip a bit. Also love they have alot of options to try so look forward to going back!
Overall I enjoyed my visit. 1. The restaurant/bakery is super bright and clean. 2. The menu board is pretty straight forward and easy to read. 3. On my visit I tried the chicken wings and fried rice. The fried rice was delicious. The wings were really crispy but unfortunately a bit chewy. 4. The watermelon green tea lemonade was delicious. 5. This location is takeout only. There are 2 benches for customers to wait on their cooked orders. However, if a few customers come at once it can quickly become a little crowded when waiting inside. 6. While the prices seem reasonable, your bill can quickly add up. My bill was about $14 for 4 chicken wingettes, fried rice, and small drink.
