Banh Mi

We tried our first Banh Mi and it was as delicious as we had hoped! Smokey pork, savory aioli, pickled radish, soy, cucumbers and herbs all came together in perfect harmony. We left off the hot peppers to keep this sandwich kid friendly. This famous Vietnamese street food was found at the Alligator Pear food stand at the Lake Eola Farmer's Market. I think it is time we tried to make it ourselves...

After a walk around the lake, we grabbed a huge bunch of fresh lemongrass and some preserves from Sunchowder's Emporia. Pumpkin butter, vanilla fig jam and their ginger apricot plum jam were the right choices this time. Where's my toast?!
