Restaurant Review: Yeh Yeh’s

banh miFor today’s restaurant review, we ventured to Yeh Yeh’s, a relative newcomer to the neighborhood. Yeh Yeh’s specializes in banh mi, a.k.a. Vietnamese sandwiches: airy toasted French baguettes stuffed with marinated grilled meat (or tofu), pickled daikon radish and carrot shreds, crunchy slices of cucumber and jalapenos, and sprigs of fresh cilantro. Banh mi are known for being delicious, filling, and inexpensive—and Yeh Yeh’s offerings are no different. A tasty, generously-sized grilled pork sandwich costs a mere $3.85.

If you’re in the mood for a more traditional sandwich filling, options include BBQ brisket, Philly-style cheesesteak, and pastrami sandwiches. And if you don’t want a sandwich at all, Yeh Yeh’s also offers Vietnamese noodle salads, papaya salad, and a beef stew. A short list of appetizers (pot stickers, egg rolls, crab Rangoon, and popcorn chicken) and drinks (iced or hot Vietnamese coffee, Thai iced tea, and bubble tea) rounds out the menu. Service is fast, and although it’s a small place, there’s a fair amount of seating. Today, however, it’s unusually sunny and warm here in Bellevue—so we opted to take our food to go and eat outside back here at Rockwell.

Until now, we’ve had to satisfy our banh mi cravings with trips to Seattle’s International District. Not anymore! Yeh Yeh’s is located just a few short blocks from Rockwell at 14339 NE 20th St., Suite D, Bellevue, WA 98007. (Phone: 425-644-5273; website: www.yehyehs.com)
