    This is seriously the yummiest thing I have ever seen!

    How could anyone not love this sandwich? I used to make Pho and spring rolls quite often…this sounds like a cross between beef Pho and spring rolls but portable. I love your take…and I could even see using shrimp or chicken, too.

      Hey John + Amy– thanks, guys! This sandwich was one of my favorites. When you give it a try, let me know! How would you switch it up to make it your own?

    I was skeptical, but I had most of the ingredients at home so I picked up some roast beef and gave it a try anyway. It was quite enjoyable. I did use a crustier bread which I do not recommend, but I will definitely make this again with a softer roll. It was easy and something a little bit different from the normal cold cuts and cheese sandwich. Thanks!

    This looks good, but I think I’m going to make it with grilled chicken!

    This is actually Vietnamese, not Thai… Just in case you were mistaken . Banh mi originated from Vietnam and is quite a delicious sandwich to munch on for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I wish they would open up more Vietnamese restaurants nowadays, especially where I currently live, because I’m extremely in LOVE with Vietnamese food !
