Bánh Mì is one of the most iconic dishes from Vietnam and it’s popularity has spread across the whole world. It represents the French influence in Vietnamese cuisine and continues to morph and transform even more in the U.S. Bánh Mì is typically filled with a flavorful protein, then stuffed with pickled daikons, carrots, cumbers, cilantro and chilis – the melding of the different flavors and textures is what makes this sandwich so amazing. Vietnamese Bánh Mì, which translates to “bread” is a airy baguette with a light and crisp crust – it’s quite different from traditional French baguettes which is denser and has a much thicker crust. If you can’t get a hold of Vietnamese Baguettes, Bolillo Rolls or Pão Francês make an excellent substitution. I’m sharing my personal favorite, Bánh Mì Gà Roti, the chicken is braised in a wonderful marinade – sweet, savory and complex in flavor – it’s really one of the best sandwiches you’ll ever have.
