Halal Banh Mi In Singapore

If you're not familiar with the dish, Vietnamese cuisine Banh Mi is a sandwich made of a airy and crunchy baguettes stuff with your choice of mayo, pickled vegetables, and juicy meats. What makes it especially interesting is the sensation of flavours and textures that just hit the Asian palate's sweet spot.

In many traditional renditions of the dish, pork is used instead of other meats, making it difficult for Muslims to try this famous sandwich. Fortunately, now Muslims can with Muslim-friendly Joo Chiat Caphe!
