Nammi food truck visits Denton every Tuesday and Thursday
The truck already made it north to little d a few times for big events.
DENTON Students craving something new for lunch can check out UNT’s latest dining edition, Nammi, a food truck offering Vietnamese fusion dishes.
The truck, which rolled onto campus last Tuesday, is located on Avenue A, east of the Language Building.
It serves up classic Vietnamese dishes, including spring rolls, Vietnamese tacos and the popular báhn mì, every Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The báhn mì is a Vietnamese sandwich that consists of a person’s choice of meat, cilantro, sweet pickled carrots, daikon radishes, thinly sliced cucumbers, jalapeños, and mayonnaise, according to the truck’s website.
Pre-mechanical engineering junior Minh Williams skipped class for the sandwich.
“It’s the combination of sweet and savory, Vietnamese and French,” he said. “[It’s] this messy deliciousness.”
“I’m a fan of Vietnamese food,” Spanish senior Payton Green said. “And the bahń mì sandwich is delicious.”
The truck averages about 100 customers every Tuesday and Thursday, owner Gary Torres said, and he hopes the number will increase.
Torres, who has been making sandwiches since he was little, said the truck will customize every order to a customer’s liking.
“The sandwich is easy, with lots of flavor that can make it complex,” he said.
