Banh Mi, the Vietnamese Sandwich
This lunch time favorite in Vietnam is also very popular in here San Francisco. We are lucky to have many good Vietnamese cafes and restaurants in town and most of them feature the inexpensive, but very good Banh Mi sandwich. Its basically a sub-type sandwich made with French baguette, sliced meat and lots of crunchy pickled carrots, cucumbers, cilantro and daikon. The meats can be roasted or grilled chicken, pork, ham or a combination. The sandwich is so good and only about $3-4 U.S. dollars. If you can find it, try it.
