Packed Lunch #5

With the do chua made recently, how could I resist making a sandwich with it? I love my sandwiches. But I had no sandwich bread so I decided to make a cheats version which I like to call my Faux Bagel Bánh Mì. I have a whole stash of bagels in the freezer crying out to be used.

My bagels were only very lightly toasted. I wish I toasted it more! But anyway, I used some leftover pulled pork from the freezer (defrosted of course), do chua and mayo. Lazy-man’s version of the very delicious classic. Nothing beats the classic but this is a tremendously hassle-free sandwich which can be whipped up in a matter of minutes.

Layer 1: Mayo. I know a few people averse to mayonnaise. Butter would be a great sub of course. bagel-banh-mi-2

Layer 2: Pork… or any leftover meat.bagel-banh-mi-3

Layer 3: The pickles!! I kept it for a couple of days before using it. bagel-banh-mi-4

And close sesame.bagel-banh-mi-5

I had to cut it to half for easy eating.bagel-banh-mi-6

It was such a great lunch with a steaming cup of Milo.bagel-banh-mi-7

Oh.. and watching some cooking/baking video while lunching makes it a more excellent experience. *Thumbs up!*bagel-banh-mi-8

Have a great weekend! <3

“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” (Isaiah 57:15)


  1. Sounds like a great lunch!

  2. Oh, that looks awesome! I would’ve never thought to put those flavors together on a bagel, but I just might now. And now I’m hungry!!

    • Neither have I! They say necessities is the master of creation, or something like that, right? 😀 sometimes fiddling around can lead to pleasant surprises.

  3. That looks awesome!
