On 17 July 2000 in the archives, Michael Horlick mentions that Vietnamese sandwiches are called "banh mi."

Wikipedia ( says they are found especially in areas with substantial Vietnamese expatriate communities. I live in an area without such a community and the local supermarket chain is advertising "Banh Mi / Lemongrass Chicken or Pork" with Sriracha mayo and carrot daikon salad in the local paper.

Wiktionary has an entry for the Vietnamese word "bánh mì" ( but not the English borrowing.
