Banh Mi Thit Nuong

Banh mi means sandwich.  Thit means pork.  Nuong means grilled.  I would have to describe my favorite food in Vietnam as a crazy good barbecue pork sandwich.  They do a surprisingly large amount of cooking over wood coals and that's how this sandwich starts.  You then take some hero sized french bread and smother it in chilies, chili sauce, soy sauce, and meat sauce that's been simmering all day.  Follow this by throwing on some mint leaves, cilantro, shredded papaya, sliced cucumbers, and some fried onion bits.  Finally add the pork and place the whole thing over the coals.  Eat while warm.  I eat one of these just about every day from this particular stand.
