A group of men from Quang Ninh, home to Vietnam's biggest coal reserve, came up with the idea to bake black bread using squid ink and bamboo charcoal.

A group of men from Quang Ninh, home to Vietnam's biggest coal reserve, came up with the idea to bake black bread using squid ink and bamboo charcoal.

The blackness of the bread (banh mi) catches the attention for its complete opposite hue to the regular golden yellow Vietnamese staple.Crispy bread out of the oven.

The filling of this exotic banh mi is also different, including minced fried squid, served together in small slices with hot sauce.

To make the sauce, the cook mixes onions, tomatoes, carrots, and oregano leaves, and simmers with the shrimp heads for an hour before pureeing.

The black banh mi was inspired by the land where it comes from, Quang Ninh, home to Vietnam's biggest coal reserve and exploitation.The north of the province is known as "the land of coal mines".

A year ago, Khac Tuan, Nguyen Quyet and Pham Tuyen wanted to create a dish that expressed the quintessence of their homeland.

"We first thought about banh mi that could be served to coal miners between shifts, wanting to also introduce the specialty of squid cakes to tourists.From there, black bread became a reality”, Mr. Tuan said.

To choose the right ink, the team had to try a variety of inks on the market because each ink produced a different ink color.The selected squids are from Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO-recognized natural heritage site in Quang Ninh.

They spent an equal amount of time trying out the dough mixes, which sometimes proved too hard or too mushy.After about 20 failures, Tuan and his friends were finally happy with the final result.

The shop also sells bigger size banh mi like these, enough to feed three to five people.Photo courtesy of Bamimo.

The shop sells between 300-700 servings a day.Besides squid cake, diners can choose from other fillings including crab cakes, shrimp, BBQ chicken and roast pork.

A meal costs from 25,000-45,000 VND (1-1 USD.9) Depending on the filling, there are squid cakes with higher prices than others.

Many curious diners visit the shop because of the uncanny-looking banh mi.

“The dipping sauce is quite good, the bread is crispy.Both pickles and fillings are served in moderation, just eating one will fill you up for breakfast.The price is a bit high compared to weekdays”, said Phuong Thao, a customer.

The shop is located at No.28 Residential complex Phu Gia 3, Vinhomes Ben Doan, Ha Long Town, Quang Ninh Province.Open from 6:30 a.NS.NS.to 9 p.NS.

Banh mi is a favorite snack among both locals and tourists in VietnaNS. A typical banh mi costs about VND20,000. Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post called Vietnam’s banh mi 'a cheap snack and global hit’ while British travel publication Culture Trip hailed it among the world’s best street snacks.

A typical banh mi is stuffed with anything from grilled pork, cold cuts and cucumber slices to cilantro, pickled carrots, liver pâté, and a swipe of mayonnaise.
