Banh Mi Vietnamese Style Sandwich
I love my Zac! He always comes up with the most interesting things to share on the blog. I’m so use to eating more traditional foods that I have grown up with but he will suggest new things and I realize there is so many yummy recipes that I haven’t even explored! I love this sandwich!
The crispiness of the veggies, to the flavor of the different meats is a marriage made in heaven. You can make this sandwich super spicy or as mild as you would like! You get to decide.
