Website CNN Travel of the United States recently published an article hailing the world’s 24 best sandwiches, with Vietnamese Bánh Mì (baguette) featured on the list.

According to CNN, Bánh Mì, a culinary remnant of French colonialism, has been reinterpreted to suit the tastes of the Vietnamese.

The dish is now sold from food carts on nearly every street corner in Ho Chi Minh City and elsewhere else in Vietnam, which is widely loved well beyond the country’s own borders, CNN wrote.

The website also shared that the classic version is pork-based, including chả lụa (Vietnamese-style pork roll), shredded pickled carrots, pickled daikon, cilantro leaves, mayonnaise, and other ingredients.

Food lovers can find variations with tofu and thinly sliced lemongrass chicken, too. The taste is crunchy, fresh, savory, and utterly delicious, CNN Travel added.

Topping the world’s 24 best sandwiches was Torta Ahogada, the most popular street food in Mexico. Other foods to make the list include Tramezzino of Italy, Shawarma of Middle East, and Pambazo of Mexico.

Earlier, international food website TasteAtlas praised the top 100 sandwiches in the world, with Bánh Mì taking top position.

A popular Vietnamese variety of sandwiches was brought over to Vietnam during the colonial period, whilst nowadays it is one of the few happy legacies from the time, the website recommended.

The Vietnamese baguette is followed by Tombik Döner of Turkey, Panino col Polpo of Italy, Ahawarmas of Lebanon, and the Sandwich de Lomo of Argentina.
