I like the version (and a bunch of their other sandiwches) at BAOGETTE in NYC.

Ba Le, right around 5000 N Broadway. $2.95, and also the best banh mi in the city. Also, Tank Noodle is right across the street, which is probably the best pho in the city. I haven't explored much pho in Chicago, but I know a few people who say Tank Noodle is def the best.
OH and while you're there you can pop into La Patisserie P. Really great French/Vietnamese pastry shop.

I suppose it depends on which country you're in.

yup....this is where I go.

Hanoi food - with the possible exception of bun cha - is crap. Bland and tasteless. The only people who like Hanoi food are Hanoians. Cue whacked telling us that Hanoi food is The True Vietnamese Cuisine and that the rest of our taste buds have been warped by overseas Vietnamese restaurants that are all run by southerners who make everything too sweet and too spicy. Cue me reminding whacked that I said the only people that like Hanoi food are Hanoians and he is a Hanoian (PS chuc mung nam moi Son)

In Vietnam, banh mi can be had with a variety of fillings, from pate, scrambled egg, lap xuong (lap chong/Chinese sausage), cha bong, pork prepared in various manners (not just BBQ), among other things. Banh mi xiu mai (per Matt's post) is but one type of banh mi. (PS: well done, Matt. The same to you.)

ya, banh mi itself just means bread. You can basically put anything on it. Hanoi especially is now overrun with banh mi ke bap - basically spit roasted kebab style meat (generally pork) served on banh mi. I quite like it, but a lot of people hate it...kebab purists I guess. My old roommate pretty much lived on a diet of banh mi op la - which roughly is an omelet rolled up inside bread, so, as whacked said, they'll put anything on there.

What is weird about that place is that she doesn't really sell banh mi xiu mai despite having it plastered all over her cart, it is basically banh mi thit nuong with a xiu-mai-esque sauce (which is what makes it so good). Getting very semantic on this, but we got in a conversation with her about it once, I think she used to make "proper" xiu mai, but the thit nuong in xiu mai gravy was outselling it by so much that she just stopped making it...but still, it's what her cart says. She loves me there, but she is like the soup nazi of banh mi. Sells out every single day. Known to ban people for dissent etc etc. Next time you are in town, I'll take you there man. Unrelated to above...how are you spending your Tet, Son?
