Boi To Go - bahn mi in midtown (finally)?
Has anyone been to Boi To Go yet to sample the bahn mi? Any reports?
Oh, come on, this place IS great!!
OK, If you are Vietnamese you may very well have a personal perspective on the food served here and gripe that the avacado in the Bahn Mi is wrong. I can understand that from a purist point of view. HOWEVER, since I am not Vietnamese and I am an adventurous NY foodie, I can say regardless of authenticity the sandwiches here are delicious! I got the Banh Mi Ga - a crusty baguette, pate, chicken breast, arugula, avocado, daikon radish & carrot salad, with red onions & fresh basil. The sandwich was served warm and the flavors popped and were excellent! If the description above of the sandwich appeals to your palate, then you will not be disappointed. It is the most unique sandwich (and delicious) I can remember having. I can also HIGHLY recommend the chicken lemon grass soup. DELICIOUS! I welcome an unusual alternative to a ho-hum midtown block. Check it out and see what you think. I love it! Also highly recommend BOI.
