This past fall, I had my first Bahn Mi sandwich for lunch at my favorite Pho restaurant near my house. It’s pretty much a perfect sandwich. It has rich, savory meat topped with fresh, and pickled crunchy vegetables stuffed into a baguette with mayo and cilantro. This sandwich is up there in taste value with
