There are logical reasons on both sides of the fusion equation for why a Banh Mi Hot Dog should taste good. On the Vietnamese side, the fact that a pork hot dog reflects the array of pork products, from pâté to meatballs to slow-cooked pork, traditionally used in a banh mi. On the American side, the fact that a Chicago dog, for one, sports an almost salad-like array of vegetable toppings, some of them pickled tangy sweet, just like a banh mi’s vegetable filling.
