Phở is one of traditional food in Vietnam. You should taste "Phở Hà Nội" soon =D
I think banh mi outside of vietnam must have morphed into something different because Saigon banh mi are just run of the mill sandwiches. Not bad but nothing special
I have never seen one but that doesn't mean they don't exist. Banh mi with egg is quite popular though. Plenty of Vegetarian restaurants here.
Never in my life have I seen a veggie (with tofu) bánh mì. No one sells bánh mì without cooked meat and/or other animal products. I think you can have one only by making it yourself. My mom used to make me bánh mì with plant-based margarine and sugar but, trust me, it tastes as if there's nothing in it. And yucky! :(
Veggie banh mi is common in Vietnam. In the past 5 years there have been more and more veggie restaurants in Vietnam and it's a growing business so banh mi is not an exception.
@ckhadung: I guess it's not the case in my locality where I can't find anyone who sells veggie bánh mì. Perhaps I can find it in some vegan/vegetarian restaurants around my place?
True and there are a couple of places that do make them quite well. But I prefer the Vietnamese take on the German take on the Turkish kebab. There are a few excellent examples in HCMC that blow pretty much any banh mi stand out of the water
Sounds yummie! How are these Vietnamese<German<Turkish kebaps called in Vietnam, do you know?
Phở is Vietnamese beef and noodle soup. You can eat it pretty much anywhere there is a Vietnamese cafe
If "phở" translates to "pho", then "món phở" SHOULD translate to "the phở". Just sayin'....
