The current red brick structure was the result of a design competition won by French religious architect Jules Bourard. The winning idea was simply to build a smaller version of the Notre Dame in Paris.

Eat the Original Vietnamese Banh Mi Sandwich

The humble Banh Mi is steeped in French Colonial history and Vietnamese ingenuity. The Banh Mi sandwich as we know it today originated in the streets of Saigon in the late 1950s when Vietnam split into two countries.

The Vietnamese had always eaten the French baguette as the French had dictated – with butter as an accompaniment to assorted cold cuts and cheese. Mr and Mrs Le, a clever couple who fled the north were the first to put the ingredients inside the bread to make a “to go” style sandwich to suit the busy Saigon lifestyle.

The simple airy baguette with shredded vegetables, cilantro, chilli, cucumber, and your choice of meat or pate has become a street food staple of Vietnam celebrated around the world.

The family of Mr and Mrs Le still run a Banh Mi shop called Banh Mi Hoa Ma in District 3. Read more about the history of the Banh Mi sandwich.
