Dave’s Bistro Bar & Grill, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia…The world’s best sandwich?

Eating bread filled with stuff is as universal as loving Taylor Swift.  When it comes to global gastronomy, the sandwich reigns supreme. If a sandwich is doing its job, every bite should be a voyage of discovery. A world of delicious ingredients hidden by slices of bread.

The Vietnamese-French Inspired Banh Mi Sandwich – Winner of the 9th Delifrance Sandwich World Cup 2012 held in Paris is a unique blend of crispy pork belly marinated with local herbs, garnished with daikon radish, carrot, cucumber and topped with bird’s eye chili and signature Tonka vinaigrette. Served between a freshly baked baguette.

Did I like the World’s best sandwich?

This banh mi was radically different, true. Something that combines so much pork with fresh herbs all stuffed into a crispy baguette is, I have to say, a pretty magical sandwich. The crunch of bread was followed by an interplay of porky goodness. It is one heck of a mega sandwich. Eating it tired me out as if I had just completed an Olympic event.

But is this truly the best sandwich in the world?

It may be a notch below great, compared to the humble Roti John. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
