My name is Dung (G) Tran,
Three years ago, I didn’t even know how to cook well. At first, many people told me that my ideas and plans wouldn’t work, but with hard work and time I was able to turn my thoughts and vision into a business. So 8 months ago, I decided to leave a very fun and rewarding job with very good company. I left my 3-week paid vacation, 2-day off a week, 401K, paid sick time, etc. to take risks and started Banh Meee as a quick serve Vietnamese Noodle Concept. To build a great business/company, I need people as passionate as I am to help me continue the next chapter of the Banh Meee. We are a growing business and there are many goals that I want to obtain in the near future: grow a second location, expand our hours, add more food items to the menu, and so on. I want to do more and be more to the community of Hartford, CT, and I know I can’t do it alone. The apprentice I’m looking for needs to have the drive and passion because this person will be very important to me to get to the next stage of Banh Meee. If you want to be part of the Banh Meee’s story and be able to look back 20 years from now to say, “I was part of a company that did something that hasn’t been done yet” then contact me. We can sit down and share our story, dreams, and goals to see if we are a great fit.
What’s the worst that can happen? Banh Meee fails to meet its vision and we all go back to our day jobs. But at least, we have a story to share.
What I am looking for in a candidate is
If you think you are a fit then contact me at 860-906-6078 or email@example.com
If you would like to see our menu or order online for in-store pickup just click on the link in the upper left hand corner or the link before.
We can’t believe it has only been a little over 2 weeks since we got the keys to 399 Capitol Ave. It seems like so long ago and so much has change to this store.
We are just waiting for the final health inspection and then we are ready to open. We will soft open for the first week or two to let us work out our system and hours of operation. This is our first store so we have a lot of hard work to do and things to learn. We hope that our loyal customers and fans will understand if we don’t have curtain items ready on our menu for our soft opening because we are still learning.
Thanks Pho Everything

Hi, my name is Dung (G) Tran. Vietnamese food to me is just food, but to many people it’s a special event when they go out to enjoy Vietnamese food. Vietnamese dishes are very colorful, full of different flavors and textures, and should be eaten freshly served because of the complexity of the condiments and veggies that enhance the dishes’ flavor.
Most people know what Pho is, but what about Bun Bo Hue? Or Bun Rieu? Or even a Banh Mi? I wanted to showcase that Vietnamese food isn't just a single dish that we eat for breakfast but other dishes with differences and contrasts in flavor. I wanted to show people that Sweet Spicy Fish Sauce "nuoc mam" can make a rice dish so much better (and that it doesn't actually smell like a nasty fermented fish).
I didn't just want to own a Vietnamese food truck but rather, I wanted to understand everything in the process, and adjust the flavor accordingly. And besides, an added advantage to a food truck is that it’s mobile so I can reach a greater customer base more effectively.
In 2015, I began watching my girlfriend’s mother and grandmother cook, and learned the skills and tricks they used to make the best versions of some of my favorite Vietnamese dishes. The tastes of these dishes were distinct, very flavorful and strong. I then came across Thuy from Little Viet Kitchen and said to myself "Wow, her dishes look amazing." From Thuy, I realized that presentation is key. I also decided to take it one step further by learning how to garden because I wanted to personally grow the herbs and vegetables that I would need to for the dishes.
Eating Vietnamese dishes isn't simple either. That’s because most of our dishes are noodles or some kind of rice with fish sauce. You can't just throw everything together and eat it two hours later (trust me, the taste will be off and the texture won’t be so good either). So, I wanted to find a container that would allow me to make eating Vietnamese dishes simple for the average person looking for an easy lunch, as well as be able to pack food to-go for the those customers who want to bring food home for their family or for dinner. After searching and trying out multiple different products, I finally found the right packaging.
After much trial and experimentation, I have optimized my favorite Vietnamese dishes into meals that are not only simple and easy to enjoy now (or later) but are also true to the taste of the dish. I hope to have the opportunity to share them with you.
This is the story of banh meee.
