Banh mi, the world-famous Vietnamese sandwich, is now available in the size of a palm in Saigon, allowing one to try a variety of different styles.

A stall at 45 Bui Thi Xuan Street in District 1 is being hailed for its small-sized banh mi, an icon of Vietnamese street cuisine.

The shop offers a variety of fillings and sauces in different styles from the north to the south.Some of the popular items on the menu include Da Lat shumai (with meatballs in tomato sauce), Saigon pork skin sandwiches, and Nha Trang fish cakes.

The baguette used here is different from elsewhere in Saigon in that it has central region-style thick crust, which prevents the sandwich from crumbling and retains more of the sauces when being eaten.

For big eaters, the stall also serves regular-sized bagels.

One of the restaurant's most popular dishes is grilled beef roll with tamarind.To make the filling, beef supposedly imported from the US is minced, seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled.Then, right after taking it out of the oven, it is dipped in sweet and sour tamarind sauce for added flavor.

Instead of using daikon radish pickle like at many other Saigon-based stalls, this place uses papaya and carrot pickles with a more crunchy texture.Other fillings are used depending on the order such as grilled beef with laksa leaves, grilled pork with onion fat.

The shop also has sate chilis, which are made by sautéing minced chili peppers with salt, garlic, and sugar and have the typical pungent flavor of Central Vietnamese cuisine.

A set with five small sandwiches in a variety of styles is sold for VND80,000 ($3.forty six).The normal size sandwich costs 30,000 -40,000 VND ($1.30-1.seventy three).

Due to the small space, the stall is mainly aimed at takeaway customers, although there are a few seats inside.
