Although the origin of Banh mi is still unverified, they supposed that it came up the first time in the 19th century, became more popular since the 20th century, and is sold across every corner in Vietnam presently. With a very reasonable price (VND 12,000 – 50,000), Banh mi is not only a familiar dish for breakfast but also a favorite snack at any time during the day. Fodor’s Travel, the famous US travel site, ranked Banh mi among the Top 20 must-try street food in the world in 2016.
Along with Banh Mi, SCMP named some other Asian best breakfasts such as hoppers in Sri Lanka, khao soi in Laos, and jok in Thailand.
