"These are excellent and rival anything you would get at a Vietnamese sandwich shop. If you use sourdough for the baguette, it gives it a nice tang. Feel free to use meat leftover from another meal, especially one that contained Asian flavors. Thanks to Mersaydees for putting this recipe in her best of 2008 cookbook!"

"These were really good. I had ran out of fish sauce so used a little oyster sauce instead hoping it would give it a little of that salty, fishy flavor. Daikon was also a no go since I could not find any at the store. Instead I doubled the dressing for the carrots and added the cucumber and cilantro to that thinking that would give the veggies more zing. It was really great. Thanks for a keeper."
"Most excellent. I cheated a little and used some roast pork from a near by Chinese restaurant. I also used fish sauce instead of soy sauce to give it a little extra kick. These were as good as the local Vietnamese restaurants Banh Mi, I think."
"Delicious! We loved the combination of flavors and the textures from the pickled vegetables and marinated meat. I used multigrain baguette and light mayonnaise, as well as low-sodium soy sauce. Thanks for sharing!"
"These were very good! I enjoyed the crunchiness of the pickled veggies on these. We served them with sriracha sauce (rooster sauce) which was the perfect touch for us. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue"
"superb. I used left over char shiu for this and oh the pickles are so good. Hollowing out the baguette lets you put more of the yummy filling! since i don't like mayo i did leave that out"
"DH and I had this for lunch today. His comment, "Tastes like a sandwich you'd get at a great restaurant." That's quite a compliement coming from a picky eater like him! He didn't think this would work without a great-tasting crusty bread like a baguette, which is called for in the recipe. It also makes for a stunning presentation. First time I used daikon radish. Made for Chinese & Vietnamese New Year Tag."
"I used some leftover chicken here and mixed it with the satay marinade posted here. Then I proceeded in making the pickled vegetables minus the daikon radish. For the sandwich assembly, we used toasted bread,mayo and soy sauce. I loved it but DH didn't like the meat. Next time, we'll make it w/o having to use leftover chicken in mixing it w/the marinade. The pickled veggies are good,btw and can be eaten like a side salad. And this is good to prepare and quick to assemble as long as veggies/meat are already prepared. I still won't put in the jalapeno,though.lol Thanks once again, Maito!"
