Vietnamese Sandwich (Bahn Mi)

May 29, 2011

A banh mi is Vietnam's version of the submarine sandwich.  The flavors are vibrant and give your mouth a wake up call- this is the farthest away  from bland that you can get.  The condiments are what make this sandwich extra special.  I recommend adding the jalapenos even if you are chile shy.  You will love bahn mi and feel like a culinary expert everytime you serve them.
