ALBANY – Just weeks after opening, tiny downtown sandwich shop Banh Mi 47 joined celebrity chef David Chang to be among the first to serve Impossible Foods’ new plant-based “pork” product.
Starting today, it will be available as Xiu Mai Chay, with Impossible pork meatballs served with pickled vegetables and cilantro on a half banh mi roll (nicely called banh mi-ni). The price is $ 5 and quantities are limited until the supply chain accelerates. The second dish, set to launch on Tuesday, is the Cha Gio Chay, impossible pork-stuffed spring rolls with a vegan sauce. They cost $ 5 for three. “Chay” means “vegetarian” in Vietnamese.
