Banhdicted, which has a northwest side location on Orange Grove Road and a food truck that’s been seen cruisin’ around town and parked at Comida Park, is opening a second brick-and-mortar location at 6878 E. Sunrise Dr.
Owners Kim and Don Vongtheung are moving into the strip next to Inca’s Peruvian Cuisine, Tuk Tuk Thai, and Blue Ice Gelato. Coincidentally, the space used to be a popular sandwich chain — hit the road, Subway! There’s a new sandwich shop on the block.
Don was born in Laos before moving to the U.S. with his family in the late ’80s. He found a career in the tech industry for nearly 20 years, but one day, a brand-new opportunity in the food business sort of “fell onto his lap.” With the influence and guidance of his partner, Kim, the menu for Banhdicted took shape and has been running ever since.
If you’ve yet to eat anything from Banhdicted, their banh mi sandwiches are the star of the show with options like barbecue pork, catfish, lemongrass beef, and vegan tofu. Other items on the menu include egg rolls, Banhdicted Wings, and Banhdicted Fries — fries topped with a spicy Sriracha sauce, cucumbers, pickled veggies, jalapeño, and a choice of protein.
The new spot on Sunrise Drive is expected to open sometime during the Summer of 2024. Stay tuned for an exact grand opening date as we creep into the warmer temperatures.
Banhdicted has a brick-and-mortar at 1980 W. Orange Grove Rd. #180 and the new spot is coming to 6878 E. Sunrise Dr. You can often find the food truck at Comida Park, 4100 S. Palo Verde Rd. For more information, visit banhdicted.com and follow Banhdicted on Facebook and Instagram.
