Why we love it? Bánh mi is one of those classic Vietnamese dishes that people flock to for a quick, filling fix. To see a restaurant explore making a handmade vegetarian meatball to supplement on this traditional sandwich, without sacrificing flavor or texture, is pretty awesome. We love the sweet chili aioli combined with the savory “meat"ball and fresh herbs. It’s a great alternative for those craving a hearty meat-filled ‘wich.
