Category:Bánh mì

Bánh mì is a Vietnamese term for all kinds of bread. Although the term bánh mì only means bread without any fillings, the term is used to refer to a type of meat-filled sandwich found in Vietnamese bakeries abroad, especially in US, Canadian, Australian, and French communities with substantial Vietnamese immigrant communities. In the Vietnamese language, the term bánh mì is not enough to describe the type of meat-filled sandwich. Therefore, additional words are added to describe the kind of fillings. For example, bánh mì xíu mại means a baguette with crushed pork meatball, Bánh mì pâté chả thịt means a baguette or sandwich with pâté, Vietnamese sausage and meat, usually pork bellies, since it is the most common kind of meat. Almost all of these varieties innovations made by or introduced and is often eaten in Saigon and is known as bánh mì Sài Gòn ("Saigon-Style" banh mi), the most popular form is banh mi thit.
