Where to Eat It: Ho Chi Minh City
Bánh mì is a term for all types of bread in Vietnamese, but it’s become synonymous with a mouthwatering sandwich that might best be described as a Vietnamese hoagie. A product of French colonialism in Southeast Asia, the bánh mì seamlessly combines Western and Eastern ingredients. Fillings vary, but a standard bánh mì consists of a baguette stuffed with meat (perhaps grilled pork, meatballs, or cold cuts), cucumber slices, sprigs of cilantro, pickled carrots and daikon, liver pâté, and a swipe of mayonnaise. They’re increasingly popular and easy to find in the West (in somewhat less-authentic forms), but the best place to eat one is still on the streets of Saigon.

Translated as “roll”, dürüm is a wrap made with flatbreads like Armenian lavash or Turkishyufka. Inside the wrap, you’ll find typical typical döner kebab ingredients: spiced meat—usually lamb, though chicken or a beef-veal combination are sometimes options—cooked on a vertical spit then sliced off and topped with tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and lettuce, along with herb-laden yogurt and hot sauce. If you’ve ever spent a late night out in a European city, you’ve likely had one of these to soak up some alcohol—döner (also known as shawarma) is arguably Germany’s most popular street food—but the Turkish version, in which the rolled wrap is grilled to maximize crispiness, is as good as it gets.

Shio black tonkotsu from Ramen-ya. Noodles were really good, and the chashu was really tender. The egg was very flavorful and cooked perfectly. Overall a solid bowl of ramen. I got the lunch special which came with a bowl of rice and torched chashu, and man was it delicious (think pork fat dripping down your chin). My biggest regret was that I couldn’t finish both.
