TasteAtla, which describes itself as a world atlas of traditional dishes, local ingredients, and authentic restaurants, released a list of ‘the 50 best street dishes in the world,’ with Vietnam’s banh mi occupying the sixth position.

Banh mi, a type of Vietnamese baguette sandwich filled with cold meats, pâté, and vegetables, is a popular dish in Vietnam.

Banh mi in each region and locality has different ingredients and recipes.

In the beginning, most banh mi sandwiches in Vietnam consisted of bread, meat, and seasonings, with no added vegetables, according to TasteAtlas.

Today, as the possibilities are virtually limitless, the sandwiches are stuffed with cold cuts, French butter, fresh mayonnaise, liver pâté, cucumbers, cilantro, pickles, oyster sauce, and garlic. 

“The bread should be light, with a delicate crust and a tender, chewy, and soft interior with a slightly sweet flavor,” TasteAtlas describes.

Guotie, the pan-fried variety of the Chinese jiaozi dumpling, from China took the lead in TasteAtlas’ ranking. 

It was followed by Malaysia’s roti canai, a pan-fried flatbread made with flour, water, eggs, and fat, and Mexico’s tacos—thin, flat griddle-baked tortillas topped with numerous fillings.

TasteAtlas is considered one of the world's most prestigious websites providing guidance on traditional cuisine, with a catalog of more than 10,000 dishes and drinks all around the world.

The recipes posted on the website are appreciated by food critics and journalists.
