When discussing Vietnamese cuisine, it’s impossible not to mention Banh Mi – a crispy baguette filled with fragrant grilled pork, accompanied by cool pickled vegetables and rich sauce, creating a perfect harmony that awakens all the senses.

What is Vietnamese sausage?

Vietnamese sausage is a unique traditional dish deeply rooted in Vietnamese culinary culture. Beyond its delicious taste, sausage serves as a meaningful gift, reflecting the care and hospitality of Vietnamese people.

Gio is crafted from ground pork, marinated with spices, wrapped in banana leaves or molds, and boiled. There are various types of this dish, with the most popular being pork sausage and silk sausage.

How is Vietnamese sausage baguette different from Western hot dogs?

Vietnamese spring rolls and Western hot dogs are both popular street foods loved for their delicious taste and convenience. Compared to Western hot dogs, Vietnamese baguette has some differences:

  • Baguette: Vietnamese sausage baguette uses baguette with a crispy crust and soft inside, creating an interesting contrast with the soft filling inside. Hot dogs are usually softer and have a slightly sweet taste.
  • Filling: The filling for baguette is more diverse and richer than hot dogs. Besides pate, cold meat, and herbs, Vietnamese Pork Sausage (Banh Mi Gio) also has Gio Lua or Gio Thu – a type of sausage made from pureed pork, marinated with spices, and wrapped in banana leaves. Hot dogs usually only have sausage, pickles, ketchup, and mustard.
  • Flavor: Baguette has a rich, spicy, and delicious flavor compared to hot dogs due to the use of many different spices such as fish sauce, pepper, chili, green onions, and coriander. Hot dogs usually have a sweeter and greasier taste.
  • How to eat: Pork Sausage Baguette is often eaten with hands, helping diners fully feel the flavor of the dish. Hot dogs are usually eaten with a knife and fork.
