  1. For the past few days I was thinking of roasting some char siu, and this provides me another idea of what to do with it afterwards.

  2. When I lived in Hell’s Kitchen, NY there were two Vietnamese restaurants within a couple of blocks of me. Needless to say, it became my favorite food. For years it became a regular dining experience and even a part of my wedding. In recent months I started cooking some of my favorite dishes and plan to explore more. I really enjoyed your post and looking at some of that yummy food. Enjoy every sandwich. Cheers

  3. Viets Rolls are awesome, they’re call Banh Mi in vietnamese, meanung bread, try putting asian roast pork inside, awesomeness. ..

  4. This could easily be the best meal in the world! I love recipes like these. I can almost taste Vietnam in your pictures. And somehow I am hungry now.

  5. This looks amazing! I might even get over my cilantro dislike with this sandwich…definitely going to be trying it out over the next few days…
