Korean Banh Mi

Korean Banh Mi

Korean flavor meets Vietnamese banh mi 🫱🏻‍🫲, a fusion twist you didn’t know you needed! This banh mi is loaded with flavor from the gochujang meatballs to the pickled radish and fresh vegetables. The Korean and Vietnamese flavors marry so well together, you would've never guessed that it’s not traditionally served this way. Luckily, there are no rules to food and we keep adding our Korean Chili Sauce to any and everything. These sandwiches work as the perfect lunch and are crazy easy to pack to go. Bring this banh mi with you the next time you go on an outing and are looking for a delicious filling meal! 😋
