Banh Mi, more commonly known as a Vietnamese pork roll is an international taste sensation, from Saigon to Sydney to San Francisco! Jam-packed with a perfect balance of sweet, savoury, sour and spicy flavours, it’s no wonder it’s so popular. We’ve taken those famous flavours and wrapped them up in soft tortillas for a meal that’s half Mexican, half Vietnamese and fully delicious!
