Here is a very simplified version of the classic Vietnemese sandwich, starting with a good quality Mayonnaise on the base of the baguette, adding the pulled pork, then layering an Asian 'slaw with grated carrot, cucumber, chopped fresh coriander & sweet chilli sauce and finishing with the all-important Hoi Sin sauce ...  

 

Sublime!
