The satisfaction of biting into a bánh mi from Nhu Lan is unrivaled. The setting is usually our deck. Faces are raised to catch the golden sun, beers in one hand, bánh mi in the other.
What's so great about a Nhu Lan bánh mi? Undoubtedly it's the combination of soft, crusty baguette, the generous, lean pieces of BBQ pork, the sweet, vinegary pickled carrot, the batons of crisp cucumber and spring onion, the fiery chili and fresh coriander. Oh and the pork liver pate. To die for. It's fresh, it's quick and it is so, so tasty.
This sandwich ticks all the boxes for me. One of the best lunches around.
