It is famous food in Laos. Similar to Vietnam’s Banh Mi sandwiches, this kind of baguette is split in half and filled with lettuce, sliced tomatoes, carrot, onion and optional cheese, moo yor (pork lunchmeat), chopped ham and topped with pate or chili sauce. These ingredients together make for a crispy outside layer with warm and delicious flavors on the inside.
It is great to taste Khao Jee sandwich in the morning with a cup of strong filtered coffee. This quick and delicious snack is sold by almost every street vendor in Laos and is readily available everywhere.
