Montrealers love a bánh mì — the crispy baguette slathered in buttery mayo, stuffed with seasoned meat or veggies, and topped with cilantro, cucumber and pickled carrots — full of crumbs, but far from crummy.

Some local restaurants know how to make the sandwich just right with fresh ingredients and even fresher takes on the Vietnamese-French fusion.
