Chef Bao La of Le Petit Saigon wondered - if these two cuisines colliding could create something so wonderful, what would happen if we took the bánh mì on a trip around the world? The Bánh Mì du Monde series celebrates the many different cultures, cuisines and talents of chefs at Black Sheep Restaurants, inviting them to create their signature bánh mì inspired by their own heritage and culinary backgrounds.
