The Best Sandwich in The World

Nga Do
“ Do the Vietnamese have sandwich? You are joking, right?”  You may ask someone these questions if they said they ate Vietnamese sandwiches. After that, you are still wondering whether it is true or not? You are far from alone in your confusion.
For Vietnamese people, Banh mi has been a popular dish for ages. They eat banh mi every day. For foreigners, what do they think about the dish when they have eaten common sandwich in their countries every day?  “ Banh mi gives me a great impression. I love Vietnamese  sandwich.” said by Joe – a Canadian visitor.

Among foreigners falling for banh mi, Simon Stanley, a freelance writer, wrote a “10000 words enduring epic” of banh mi which was posted in Roads & Kingdom. Surprisingly, he said “Before visiting Viet Nam, I don’t know anything about it. But now, Vietnamese sandwich is one part of invisible rope glued me with Viet Nam forever. Nowadays, I know many foreigners totally falling for it.”

About Vietnamese sandwich:

Viet Nam had been a colonial country of the French for 61 years. When first Cannon ships turned out in Viet Nam in 1859, Vietnamese’s history and lifestyle changed in all aspects, including cuisine. Although the French is an aggressor nation, it cannot deny that they brought their civilization to Viet Nam. More or less, Vietnamese’s lifestyle has been affected by them. Nevertheless, it had to take about 70 years (through 2 world wars for bread to turn French’s food into Vietnamese’s).  . It is related to a long period of Vietnam’s hard time. However, only when in 1914 did the First World War begin banh mi make a buzz in Viet Nam. At that time, the barrier of food between VietNam and France was broken down so Vietnamese handed over officially French food. They used wonderful ingredients in VietNam then changed the original bread to be more suitable for Vietnamese’s taste and weather. Some people said that “French did not volunteer to give me to Vietnamese. No matter what these opinions are, they cannot change the past. In fact, banh mi is belonging to Vietnamese.”

Being one of many dishes in Hanoi, banh mi has its own position, even for the toughest customers. BBC wrote a topic with its headline “Is the banh mi the world’s best sandwich?” In addition, nowadays, many Vietnamese living abroad bring banh mi to many big modern cities in the world such as California and San Francisco . Is it the rise of Vietnamese sandwich in the future? May be.
