Some food arguments may never be settled. For one, who makes the best Vietnamese Sandwich (Bánh Mì) in America?
Vietnamese Sandwich may inspire heated debate, but some facts are incontestable. A culinary embodiment of French colonial rule in Vietnam, Bánh Mì are composed equally of French and Vietnamese Cuisine. They all begin with a whole baguette, preferably baked in-house and dressed with an aioli spread infused with pork, garlic and fish sauce. These ingredients then hold a wide variety of fillings: barbecue pork, fried tofu and thick-sliced ham are the most common options, along with pork pâté, grilled chicken, meatballs, sauteed vegetables and, occasionally, whole sardines.
