Bistro Rollin in Pelham has added a Banh Mi sandwich to its lunch menu, making it the first restaurant in Westchester (that I know of) to serve it.
Bánh Mì have become very popular all over New York, from little Vietnamese mom-and-pop shops to fancy midtown restaurants like Ma Peche. The sandwiches do a good job of summing up Vietnamese cuisine, which borrows techniques and ingredients from the French (baguettes! pate!) and traditions and ingredients from Southeast Asia (pork! pickles! daikon!).
Fillings can include roasted or grilled pork, steamed or roasted pork belly, Vietnamese sausage, chicken, head cheese and ham. At Rollin, chef Manny Lozano has created his signature sandwich using Vietnamese sausage, pickled carrots and daikon, country pate, all made in house.
