Nammi at the Farmers Market

Nammi, the sky-blue Vietnamese fusion food truck plastered with a cartoon logo, has been trucking around Dallas selling banh mi sandwiches for more than a year now, and it doesn’t look like it’s stopping anytime soon. The bread is good. Crusty yet soft and pliable, the loaf absorbs condiments without getting soggy and integrates with the rest of the sandwich. Fillings include grilled pork, barbecue pork, chicken, tofu and beef, which can also be ordered in tacos and rice bowls that don't shine as brightly as the banh mi. If you go this route be sure to grab some of the hand-made condiments from the front of the truck. Spicy mayo, creamy cilantro and a bottle of store-bought Sriracha are available for dousing your food. While other trucks offer plastic bottles of Coca-Cola products and prepackaged potato chips, Nammi offers an eclectic mix of snacks and beverages. Tube-shaped cookies dipped in frosting, sweet-potato-flavored chips and other Asian-inspired snacks join bags of Miss Vicky's chips, and there are fun sodas based on fruits you'd have to go to H-Mart to find. It's those last few touches that push Nammi to the lead of the pack in Dallas' food truck scene.
