I must try one of these. I first heard about them on CH. I asked a Vietnamese friend about them and she said it is pronounced Baaaang Meeee which was a little awkward, but anyway she said it means bread but refers to the sandwich as well. They haven't really become popular in the middle of the country (Denver) yet but she said they have them at the Pacific Ocean Market which is pretty close by. I like pate pretty well. Are there any recommendations as far as a good one to try for my first bahn mi? I may make a field trip this weekend!
