Banh Mi Day Is A Thing And It's Happening At Grand Central Market
We know that there seems to be a made-up holiday for just about every type of food, but Banh Mi Day is a nosh fest we'd gladly support.
Downtown's Grand Central Market is honoring the delicious Vietnamese sandwich on October 10 by having some of their food vendors sell unique and creative banh mi creations. Andrea Nguyen, author of The Banh Mi Handbook, will also be giving some cooking demonstrations.
According to the Grand Central Market's website, these food purveyors will be selling their banh mi creations all day:
Horse Thief BBQ - smoked pork belly banh mi Belcampo Meat Co. - duck banh mi
Eggslut - Asian omelet banh mi
DTLA Cheese - chicken liver on toast banh mi
Valerie at GCM - smoked salmon banh mi
