Best banh mi in Singapore
In the past few years, we’ve seen a rise in the number of banh mi stalls in Singapore. For those who might not be super familiar with what exactly banh mi is, here’s the lowdown: banh mi was a fusion dish invented in the mid-19th century in Vietnam, after French colonials introduced the baguette to the locals. The filled sandwich is typically loaded with Vietnamese meats, such as pork sausage, along with fresh herbs and pickled vegetables—coriander, carrot, and daikon are the most common. A lick of pate, mayonnaise, and a dash of red chilli complete this handy, portable meal.
