What do you get when Vietnamese food and Filipino food get married and make babies? Banh mi with chicken Adobo filling, of course!

Husband-and-wife team Cathy and Romano Basilio are rolling out their gastronomic love child, Xplosive Mobile Food Truck, sometime in late spring or early summer. In addition to Adobo, their foot-long banh mi sandwiches will also be filled with choices like lemongrass grilled pork or chicken, Filipino-style stir-fried beefsteak, tofu, and Longaniza (Filipino sweet pork sausage).

Want a different delivery method? Said fillings can be had in taco form or piled into a vermicelli bowl. Or how about just a cuter, more compact vehicle? They’ll be doing slider versions as well.
