Bánh Mì --A Vietnamese Sandwich

What is in a Bánh mì sandwich? Lets take one apart and see what we got.

Best Bánh mì  so far--thanks to eastsidegirl1977 for the great Seattle recommendation. I've been eating a lot of these sandwiches crammed with spicy, fresh ingredients--maybe too many sandwiches--but it's too great a taste and value to pass up.

Bánh mì are a fusion of French and Vietnamese culture. Spicy peppers and daikon mix with cooling carrot and cucumber to create a a real treat for your tongue, and a little BBQ pork added makes it irresistible; wrap it up in a crunchy French baguette and it's heaven.

Basic Bánh mì Ingredients:
Sliced Pork
Pickled Daikon
Pickled Carrots
Hot Pepper
Black Pepper
Salt (if desired)
