One of the most beloved street foods from Vietnam, the irresistible bahn mi is traditionally made with juicy sliced meat (usually pork), crunchy pickled vegetables, fresh chilies, herbs and a sauce. It is served on a baguette with a soft crumb and thin, crispy crust.

A simple sauce of mayonnaise and sriracha contributes a creamy element; sliced jalapenos a burst of heat; and fresh cilantro leaves just the right amount of green herbaceous-ness.
