Many banh mi aficionados are very familiar with the standard banh mi bread: a crispy, fluffy bread roll slightly similar in appearance with a sub roll but with a golden exterior. A true banh mi isn't really dense like a roll and has a crispy crust. The banh mi bread is modeled after the French baguette but made with rice flour, the texture is light, fluffy and slightly chewy.
Vietnamese food has many French influences, and while over the years many of the foods have been adapted to local preferences, tastes to create it's own identity, we find the original baguette rather charming and appetizing. Our bread is unlike any other you will find at the greater Atlanta area, and perhaps in many parts of the United States. It's long slender appearance models after the French Baguette with it's beautiful diagonal slits, while the freshly baked bread still adheres to it's Vietnamese identity made of rice flour, fluffy and the right amount of chewyness.
