About Us

About Ami Tea & Sub

Our story began in 2018 when we first started as a small family-owned Taiwanese milk-tea and Vietnamese bánh mì vendor at the heart of Calgary’s vibrant Chinatown.

Our motivations

Different culinary tastes and being 12,000 miles away from our beloved home came with their useful perks. For the first time in our lives, we realize just how powerful familiar tastes were; of how a slight tinge of coriander leaf, concealed amidst the piquant mix of marinated satay beef could mean a world of differences to a cultural food enthusiast. Just imagine fusing that essence with the richness of a specially-brewed cup of Taiwanese black milk tea to see what lies await?

Our vision and philosophy

With Ami Tea & Sub, we are one step closer to achieving our philosophy of sharing authenticity and familiarity with the foodies’ community here in Calgary. Our dreams are simple, yet ambitious: we dedicate our hearts to blending bold flavors and intimate friendships, over a sip of tea and a bite of bread at a time. Our vision for the future revolves around giving back to the community that has supported us so much over the past few years: we strive to bring everyone along the way of enjoying our limitless passion for tea and street food.
