Banh mi chao (Bread with combo pan) is a Vietnamese-styled hot alternative to stuffed baguettes.

Bread is served in a frying pan with eggs, pate and sausage. But this is just the basic version. A wide variety of "fillings" are available for hungry diners to choose from.

This dish is usually served immediately after it is cooked. Typically, a mixture of chilli sauce and soy sauce are added to the dish before it is eaten. The egg yolk combined with the seasoning makes for a greasy, tasty sauce which a piece of crispy bread is dipped into.

The dish is appreciated by both Vietnamese and foreign tourists and people sit on plastic chairs in a small alley to enjoy the dish.
