Hue 2016 - Banh Mi in Hue

I thought Banh Mi was only popular in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, but in Hue you also find it everywhere. Just walk down almost any street and you are bound to come across a Bahn Mi stall - sometimes even 2 or 3 next to each other. Though they all look about the same - each stall has its own ingredients which make the taste different. Unlike the Banh Mi ladies in Hanoi who are usually quite fierce and don't like their pictures taken, the Banh Mi ladies in Hue are very friendly and easily break into a big smile.

If you love sandwiches, you would love Banh Mi. The best Banh Mi we had in Hue was at Banh My Xue at Le Loi Street opposite the Green Hotel. The bun is crispy outside and soft inside, and the fillings delicious.
