Banh Mi, is a popular Vietnamese sandwich, usually made on a wheat and rice flour baguette bread. Inside are thinly sliced carrots, daikon, cucumbers, onions, cilantro, jalapeno peppers -- then filled with a variety of meat or tofu fillings (grilled pork, ham, head cheese, etc.)
There are many types of fillings that can be put into Banh Mi but the most popular version includes cucumbers, pickled carrots and daikon, onion, cilantro, pate, butter, roasted or grilled pork, Vietnamese sausage, ham. The Banh Mi is a popular Vietnamese fast food because of its low price and delicious taste. Banh mi are not your ordinary sandwiches; they’re crunchy, filled fusion baguettes, stuffed full of fresh, fragrant and tasty Vietnamese ingredients. This popular street food originated after French settlers first introduced bread to Vietnam back in the late 18th century. But as the years progressed and the French rule eventually ended, the Vietnamese began to introduce their own fragrant and spicy flavors, including marinated grilled meats, pickled vegetables, fresh herbs and lots of chili peppers.
