Ba´nh mi

We know that we want a ba´nh mi sandwich on our cafe menu but the question was what direction to take it. The original calls for shredded pork and pork liver pate´, while delicious I'm not sure how well it would sell hear in Salem. My answer was to combine the two pork elements and create a country pork pate´seasoned with ginger, garlic and lemongrass. If you wanted to call it an Asian meatloaf I would not be offended. A smear of sriracha aioli, some fresh and pickled vegetables to round it out.
