The one and only sandwich that truly hits the spot for me is the Vietnamese Banh Mi.
What is Banh Mi?
It is a sandwich composed of a light and crispy baguette (made using a combination of rice and wheat flour) filled with mayonnaise, liver pâté, chillies, coriander, cucumber, pickled carrot and your choice of protein (Vietnamese cold cuts, leftover roasts/barbecues, etc.).
It does sound a lot…because it is. But you only need small quantities of each to create this masterpiece of a sandwich.
For today’s lunch I’ve used leftover lechon (and Vietnamese pork roll) to give it a Pinoy touch and then some beetroot instead of pickled carrots to add a bit of an Aussie element to my sandwich.
