A Tale of 3 Countries...

This recipe is inspired by three different cultures: A Cambodian twist on a Vietnamese Traditional Sandwich influenced by the French during the French Colonial Period.

Called "Bah Mi" in the Cambodian Khmer Language, the Cambodian People have taken a sandwich idea from their neighbors in Vietnam and made it their own! Where do the French come in? This recipe uses French Bread which can be found all over Southeast Asia.

This sandwich is delicious and is often sold on the street by vendors. You can usually get these delicious sandwiches in the "China Town" section of many large American Cities. That is how I came across this recipe! The first time I tried this delightful sandwich was in Boston's China Town.


This recipe will be broken down into 3 Sections:

  1. Main Ingredients
  2. Marinade Ingredients and Recipe
  3. Recipe for Pickled Vegetables (Click link for recipe)

      It is really good. The only places I can find these awesome sandwiches is in Providence, RI and Boston, MA. I am sure that there are other places in between but when I get the craving and don't want to make it at home, that's where I go! I hope someday you get to try this. It's really good!

      Wow, Om Paramapoonya. I am so pleased to receive a comment by you! A Multi-Hub of the Day recipient! I enjoy the Anise and Soy Sauce combo, especially in this sandwich. To be honest, I have tried the Cambodian and Vietnamese versions and prefer the sandwiches that I buy in Boston's China Town. They are Vietnamese and there is just something that makes them a little better. May I ask your Nationality? I appreciate your comment! Congratulations on the Hubs of the Day!
