While sugary drinks and sodas are a common menu item at most restaurants, we carefully select juices and drinks of Asian origin that not only taste good but come with many health benefits.
Our two signature drinks: orange passionfruit and hibiscus tea are symbolic of our origins, the Vietnamese flag of golden hue and red stripes. Passionfruit is considered an exotic fruit but common in Vietnam. It's tropical and aromatic flavors delights the senses in desserts and drinks and is touted to be packed with antioxidants that not only boost the immune system, it is good for digestive system, supports healthy heart, reduces anxiety and improves insulin sensitivity
With it's origins tracing back to Southeast Asia, the hibiscus plant can be used to make an herbal tea, and recent studies looked into the possible role of hibiscus in the treatment of blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Hibiscus tea at Bun Mi Vietnamese Grill is mixed in with tea leaves and has a hint of berry providing an aromatic and sweet tart taste that is lightly sweetened and refreshing.
Bun Mi Vietnamese Grill is also one of the few restaurants that serve fresh from the coconut water. Non processed, not in a can, we literally crack open the coconut for you to drink. It doesn't get any better than that. (Unless you're in Vietnam or other tropical destinations where they would pick it off the tree for you). Coconut water has recently become a trend in health foods as it's packed with antioxidants and benefits against diabetes, which unfortunately has driven up prices for them as well!
It's almost a given now that every asian restaurant must have a milk tea option. Bun Mi Vietnamese Grill takes the healthier approach as much as we can. That is not to use artificial creamers, additives or flavorings to our tea. We brew our tea with green and black whole tea leaves not powders or mixes. We use real milk and sugar and classic flavors like Jasmine Green, Black and Thai. We prefer jellies over boba as it digests better and lower in carbs.
Our house drinks also include fresh squeezed limeaid and a Vietnamese Coffee Latte, an addicting beverage with enough caffeine to last you throughout the day.
