A Perfect Bite: Banh Mi in Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s got plenty of pho places, but where can you grab a good banh mi? Banh mi, meaning “bread” in Vietnamese also refers to a type of baguette sandwich in Vietnamese cuisine.

Banh mi is traditionally filled with pork sausage called “cha lua”, coriander, cucumber, pickled carrots, with pate and mayonnaise smeared on the baguette as condiments. Although it is perfect for a midday snack or a quick to-go lunch, there are only a handful of banh mi shops in Hong Kong.
