Bánh mì is a type of sandwich that is popular in Vietnam. It is made using a baguette as the base ingredient. The baguette was introduced to Vietnam during the colonial era and has since become a beloved part of Vietnamese cuisine. According to an article, the crusty bread, condiments, and meats used in Bánh mì are influenced by French and Chinese colonialism, while the addition of cilantro, chili, and pickles reflects the Vietnamese preference for fresh and flavorful vegetables.

Traditionally, Bánh mì sandwiches consist of bread, meat, and seasonings, but nowadays, they also include vegetables. TasteAtlas, an online encyclopedia of flavors, recommends several famous Bánh mì outlets in Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An, Hanoi, as well as in the United States and Australia.
