Loafs of banh mi filled with cucumber, pickled carrots and salted shredded pork are served at a stall in HCMC. CNN has included Vietnam’s popular banh mi in a list of the world’s 23 best sandwiches, saying “it is widely loved well beyond the country’s borders.
This is the kind of news we love to publish. Especially when it comes to international recognition from a reputable Institution. That said, Vietnamese restaurateurs can rightly wallow when they serve you this delicious and unique sandwich. Bon appétit ! The Edsitor
Banh mi is a fusion of cold cuts and vegetables like coriander, cucumber, pickled carrots and daikon combined with condiments from French cuisine like pate and mayonnaise. However, a wide variety of popular fillings are used, including cha lua (Vietnamese pork bologna), fried eggs, grilled pork, and meat balls.
“A culinary remnant of French colonialism, the baguette sandwich was reinterpreted to their own taste by the Vietnamese,” CNN said.
“Banh mi are now sold from food carts on nearly every street corner in Ho Chi Minh City and across Vietnam.”
A loaf of banh mi costs from VND15,000 ($0.65) to VND50,000.
Banh mi is a symbol of Vietnam’s cuisine and has built quite a global reputation.
Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post last year named it as one of the best Asian breakfasts.
