Vietnamese Style Banh Mi Sandwiches At MLH

Mar 19, 2011 3:10:22 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Vietnamese baguette sandwiches, called Banh Mi, have attracted a loyal fan base and it will be much sought after because of the unique and delicious flavours at MLH. The uniqueness of these sandwiches not only lies within the french influenced baguette, but it’s also the flavour packed, savory Viet fillings that make the marriage of the two main ingredients a true love affair. March 21st to 26th are the dates the Governor’s Terrace will be pungent with the aroma of the various leftovers tossed into the sandwich to finish them up (like a po’ boy).
MLH will range its menu from chunked BBQ grilled pork, sliced pork pate, and shredded grilled chicken, to grilled and smoked salmon, sardine, meatball, Chinese-style sausage, and even tripe  as some of the ingredients.
MLH’s Viet style french baguette, with a combination of rice and/or wheat flour, resulting in a very light, crackly crust and not overly dense bread, will use the following condiments for the filling: pickled julienned carrot, pickled julienned daikon radish, cilantro leaves and stalks, super-thin jalapeño slices, fresh sliced cucumber, and other fresh and organic ingredients.

The menu will include:
•    Special combination “banh mi thit nguoi” which translates as “bread with meat cold cuts”
•    Vietnamese Meat Loaf – Banh Mi Ba Cha Lua
•    Shredded Pork – Banh Mi Bi
•    Charbroiled Beef – Banh Mi Bo Nuong
•    Curry Chicken with French Roll – Banh Mi Ca Ri Ga
