Vietnamese Banh Chung in Boston?

jpeezey12 Feb 4, 2011 05:38 AM

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.)

    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
