The blackness of the bread (banh mi) catches the attention for a complete opposite to the regular golden yellow Vietnamese staple. The bread comes out of the oven crispy.

The filling of this exotic banh mi is also different, including minced fried squid, served together in small slices with hot sauce.

To make the sauce, the cook mixes onions, tomatoes, carrots, and oregano, simmered together with shrimp heads for an hour before pureeing.

The black banh mi was inspired by the land of Quang Ninh, home to Vietnam's biggest coal reserve and exploitation. The northern province is called "land of coal mines."
