I'm part Vietnamese and growing up I only ate Vietnamese/Chinese food. This recipe is way different than what I am used to...maybe because all the Vietnamese people I know come from a different part of Asia than the author of this recipe?? LOL (also, i have never seen them have lime juice or chile sauce with garlic or red onion) Anyway, this how I've seen it and how I've been eating it for over 20 years... The example below is for ONE 6-7inch french bread split lengthwise -slightly Toast the french bread -2 teaspoon of pate mixed with 1 teaspoon of mayo (no substitute please) -optional: add fresh sliced chili peppers to this mixture (up to you how spicy) -spread on the insides of bread -use Pork "meatloaf" (called "Cha" at the oriental markets.. they also sell these freshly fried! mmm...but I don't get the fried one for this sandwich) -garnish with cucumbers, pickled carrots, sliced jalapenos, and you definitely must have cilantro! Very simple! Don't let pate scare you away!
