This is absolutely one of our new favorites here on BeastFeast. It is healthy, easy to prepare and incredible delicious. I don’t even know, why we never bring this kind of sandwich for lunch to work. 🙂 This lemongrass chicken banh mi sandwich is so satisfying!

My first banh mi sandwich, I’ve actually ate on Bali. Since then I actually have a hard time to find it on the menu. I really rarely see this dish on the menu at the Vietnamese restaurants here. I absolutely love the options you have with these banh mi sandwiches.
