What’s up yall it’s taste tuesdays and today we’re going to explore my Vietnamese home cuisine, the Bánh mì.
So Bánh mì is a french roll sandwich that’s filled with meat, pickled carrot & daikon radish, spreads, and veggies. It’s so good when you make them at home because you can just stuff it with everything but store bought is so good as well.
So this is the usual, the CLASSIC if you will. I like mine without the japaleno peppers and cilantro but everything else is meat and a lot of love. The photo is WRONG with the AMERICAN HAM. I’ve never had it with american ham LOL there’s vietnamese ham called Cha Lua which is wrapped in banana leaf then boiled and it’s really good with #6 the viet pork which is a fried kind of ham.
The next biggest type of banh mi is roast pork or something of pork. Chicken is MEH it’s not the one people would want or should want to try first because in my opinion, it’s just another variety. If you ever try it, get hams or pork. Yes, I’m aware they are both pig meats but the meats give very different flavors and textures when you’re eating. 🙂
