Banh Mi DC Sandwich

banh mi

Banh mi is a kind of Vietnamese/French fusion of a sandwich, deli meats served in a baguette with toppings like cilantro and pickled daikon. I’ve actually never had it before, so this was a first for me. X)

I got the “combination” sandwich, which I think was at least 3 different kinds of pork meat. Whatever it was, it tasted delicious. It went so well with the pickled daikon, slivers of cucumber and carrots, and that mayo that they slathered on. Mmm… Of course, cilantro added that extra burst of flavor that I always love.

This “DC Sandwich” place in Falls Church has a really wide selection. The deli also has a smallish kind of grocery, stocking snacks and interesting stuffed rice ball type things wrapped in banana leaves. The only downside is, they have no seating, so everything is take-out.

If you order more than one sandwich, they helpfully stamp them for you so you know what’s what:
