TGI Fridays Welcomes New Pork Belly Banh Mi at Select Locations

TGI Fridays Pork Belly Banh Mi Sandwich.
TGI Fridays serves up the new Pork Belly Banh Mi Sandwich at select locations across the US. It is joined by two other new sandwiches: the Parmesan Crusted Italian Beef and Hawaiian Shrimp Po'Boy (it's a bit confusing why the banh mi, which means sandwich in Vietnamese, includes "sandwich" in the name, while the Italian beef and po'boy do not).

TGI Friday's Pork Belly Banh Mi Sandwich features grilled sous vide pork belly basted with Korean red chili sauce served with Korean red chili aioli, sesame seasoning, broccoli slaw, red radishes, jalapenos, and cilantro, on a toasted French roll. It comes with seasoned fries as a side.

The chain's Parmesan Crusted Italian Beef offers chopped beef, bell peppers, onions, pepperoncinis, jack cheese, and Dijon aioli on a toasted garlic-parmesan-crusted French roll. It's served with seasoned fries.

Finally, the Hawaiian Shrimp Po'Boy consists of crispy-fried shrimp, Huli Huli Sauce, broccoli slaw, grilled pineapple, and fresh herb mix on a toasted French roll. As with the other two sandwiches, seasoned fries are included as a side.

All three sandwiches seem to be a fusion take on their respective namesakes. Prices vary but the Parmesan Crusted Italian Beef costs $13.99 at my nearest TGI Fridays, while the other two sandwiches are $17.99 a piece.
