Vietnamese Banh Chung in Boston?

My mom normally mails me one or two for Tet, but she wasn't able to make her normal batch of it this year. Anyone know of any shops in the Boston metro that sells this?

(It's the square rice cakes filled with pork and mung bean and other stuff wrapped in banana leaf.)

  1. Mike's Banh Mi used to carry them, but I didn't see them at its successor, Sub City. I imagine the bakery kind of spots in Dorchester -- Ba Le Bakery, the place that succeeded King Do -- might carry them.


    Ba Le Bakery
    1025 Dorchester Avenue, Boston, MA

    Sub City
    42 Beach St, Boston, MA 02111

    1. try ba le bakery on dot ave in dorchester. they're more likely to have it than king do/la baguette

      1. Any VNmese grocery or bakery along Dorchester Ave will have them. Ba Le Bakery, Truong Thinh Market, Vien Dong Market, Chau Bakery, Nhu Y Bakery, Phu Cuong Market.
