The Special Combination Banh Mi ($5.95) at Danh’s Deli Express in Bossier City.
Danh’s Deli Express recently opened at 4100 Barksdale Boulevard, Suite #119, and have introduced something new to Shreveport-Bossier’s culinary scene: Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwiches, a po-boyish creation made unique by Vietnamese-style veggies featured front and center. All Banh Mi creations at Danh’s Deli Express are dressed with homemade mayo, pâté, cucumber, shredded carrot and pickled daikon radish, cilantro, jalapeno and soy sauce. Priced at $4.95-$5.95, these unique sandwiches are served with a bag of lays and a fortune cookie. Varieties of Banh Mi include pork, beef, chicken, and ham, with a “Special Combination” version that features just about every meat they offer.
If you’re looking for something more substantial than a sandwich, Danh’s Deli Express also offers a number of Vietnamese favorites from the menu of the Danh’s Garden on Youree Drive in Shreveport: pho, curried chicken, vermicelli noodle salads, and steamed rice platters. Easily the least-expected house specialty here is the homemade ice cream, which comes in flavors like mango, coconut, and strawberry, and is served in a large, frozen coconut. One serving is large enough to serve as dessert for two.
Housed inside of a former Taco Bell in a nondescript strip mall, Danh’s Deli Express would be easy to pass up without noticing. But for anyone seeking something new and different, their menu rewards an adventurous spirit. Danh’s Deli Express is open 8 a.m.-9 p.m., Tuesday-Sunday, and can be reached by phone at (318) 752-5999.
