A note about serious food allergies

Yup, what you're looking at right here is a breadless banh mi; all the flavors you love in that classic Vietnamese sandwich, in bowl form. Will the wonders of 2019 never cease? Ground pork, flavored with ginger and teriyaki, join pickled cucumbers and carrots in topping fragrant jasmine rice. It's exactly like the sandwich, except, dare we say, even better.
