Baguettes that know the way to your heart. Because there’s a trail of breadcrumbs on your shirt.
Vietnam makes better sandwiches. You won’t associate the country as king in this department, unless you’ve tasted a Bánh Mì. What makes this meat-filled roll unique is the baguette. Another hangover from the French occupation, it’s made with rice flour as well as wheat flour. This makes the inside cloud soft and gives the crust a satisfying shatter. Small, street-side shops layer Bánh Mì baguettes with cold cuts and luncheon meats, like thịt nguội (ham) and chả lụa (a type of sausage), but on the streets of Vietnam you can find everything from shredded pork skin to grilled chicken and vegetarian alternatives.
The Vietnamese sandwich, sometimes called a “bánh mì sandwich”, is a product of French colonialism in Indochina. Combining ingredients from the French (baguettes, pâté, jalapeño, and mayonnaise) with native Vietnamese ingredients, such as cilantro, cucumber, and pickled carrots and daikon.
