Goodies Galore at Shilin Night Market

Whenever I’m in Taipei, I always make a point to eat and enjoy as much as I can here.

The Cambodian Take on Bánh Mì

Bánh Mí – the Vietnamese Sandwich – is my all-time favorite lunch item. Growing up in Southern California, I could always get it freshly made at any sandwich shop in Little Saigon or my Grandma’s house.

Nam Pung Sandwich Shop in New York City is one of my Go-To places for a sandwich that takes me back to my childhood. Nam Pung does an amazing, modern Cambodian take on the Bánh Mí . One of their signature sandwiches that I’m crazy about is the Five-Spice Glazed Pork Belly sandwich.
