Banh mi is a kind of sandwich which consists of a Vietnamese version of a crunchy baguette filled with savory meats and fresh vegetables. It is the product of the influences of Vietnam’s Indochinese neighbors and French colonizers, introduced in the mid-19th century and became a staple in the early 20th century.
Banh Mi Kitchen’s The Classic sandwich may be considered the starter variant among the shop’s various offerings. The crusty banh mi bread is filled with slices of Vietnamese ham, roast pork, pate, cucumber, pickled radishes and carrots, flavored with mayonnaise and hoisin sauce.
Together with the Banh Mi Kitchen’s own milk tea at only Php199 results in a fusion of flavors that made for light yet filling meal with decidedly Asian flavor.
This banh mi adventure occured during a recent lunchtime visit to M Place along Mother Ignacia Street, South Triangle, QC.
