In the U.S., banh mi is the name of a Vietnamese sub sandwich. It exits because French rule of Vietnam resulted in bakeries that produced the short baguettes on which a banh mi is made, and it came to America with southeast Asian immigrants. Ingredients are as varied as American subs, ranging from sardines to pulled pork and fried eggs to all-vegetables. Most memorable bahn mis have an Asian twist, such as lemongrass beef at Tasty Chicken & Banh Mi in Anaheim, California, and meatballs with shockingly crisp vegetables at Thanh Son Tofu in Seattle.
