Fast food conglomerate Yum Brands opened a second branch of Vietnamese fusion concept Banh Shop in DFW Airport's Terminal D on Saturday. Banh mi sandwiches with various fillings (think grilled pork meatballs and coconut chicken breast), noodle bowls, and a strange-yet-tasty Southeast Asian spin on elotes are certainly a welcome addition to the oft-depressing airport dining landscape.

The airport Banh Shop is open daily from 6 a.m.-10 p.m. and is located at gate D31. The quick-service, order-at-the-counter setup makes it a viable option for travelers who want something better and fresher than the airport's many fast food options, but faster and cheaper than places like Reata or III Forks — or the dreaded TGI Friday's that seem to occupy every terminal, for that matter.

The first Banh Shop opened near SMU back in September; following some early logo-related controversy, the buzz on the food, service, and atmosphere has been mostly favorable.
