Dish of the week: The Banh Mi at Tom&Serg
A far superior sandwich
When it comes to lunch, balance is the key – proved here to perfection by the too-cool-for-school contemporary café in Dubai's Al Quoz art and industrial district. It's a simple crisp baguette filled with braised beef brisket, fresh herbs, kimchi, jicama, and lime mayo for a little punctuation – that originated on the streets of Vietnam. "Packed with flavour yet light as a feather" as chef Tom Arnel and business partner Sergio Lopez themselves say, believing that any recipe worth making is worth sharing – and in this case, we wholeheartedly agree.
