“I want people to understand this is a very café-esque style,” Huynh said. “You can sit down, hang out—if you want, do some school work for a few hours and get some coffee and a sandwich while you’re at it. That’s what I’m going for.” -Sky Huhnh
World Sandwich is the only Asian bakery in Shreveport and is a family business owned by Sky Huynh’s father and uncle Johnny Huynh and Kevin Dang. The family migrated from Vietnam to the U.S. in the early 1990s, first living in Dallas then Shreveport.
Over the past several months, the family completely renovated the storefront and rolled out a concept that would create a cozy, casual atmosphere.
“I want people to understand this is a very café-esque style,” Sky said. “You can sit down, hang out—if you want, do some school work for a few hours and get some coffee and a sandwich while you’re at it. That’s what I’m going for.”
World Sandwich Special Bahn Mi: Street-style pork cold cut with pate, pork terrine (Vietnamese spam), Vietnamese ham, and seasoned pork belly.
Grilled Marinated Chicken Bahn Mi (Ga Nuong): Chicken marinated with lemongrass, Asian sweet chili sauce, garlic, soy sauce, and oyster sauce.
Vegetarian Bahn Mi (Chay): Aromatic lemongrass tofu and avocado.
Fresh Spring Rolls: A variety is offered with a choice of pork, shrimp, chicken, beef tofu and more.
Vietnamese Iced Coffee: Traditionally made with sweet condensed milk and served over ice. “Vietnamese coffee has the condensed milk in there that gives it that sweetness.”
Boba Milk Tea: Taiwanese, Thai, Brown Sugar, Taro, and Jasmine Milk Tea Boba.
“Most Vietnamese meals are family meals. Everybody sits around together and gets food from the bowls or plates and you eat a bowl of rice with it," said Sky Huynh, operational manager. "I want people to understand that is family for us. Food is family. Everything we have here we want people to share that same experience with us.” -Sky Huynh
The menu was handcrafted with a choice of appetizers, entrees, and beverages that would be easy for consuming in the dining room or on the go. Three items Sky recommends as introductory dishes are the grilled chicken, grilled steak, and the World Sandwich Special Bahn Mi.
Soon, specials will be offered on Saturdays featuring rotating dishes, such as Vietnamese rice plate, pho, curry, and ramen.
