There are quite a few Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sandwich) places in the city. But there are only two that Gan and I really like. One of them is Banh Mi Saigon Bakery in Chinatown, and the other, is the newly opened Baoguette in Kips Bay area. We like the Banh Mi at Baoguette because the baguette is really fresh and toasty, and the filling - Pork Terine, Pate, Pulled Pork, pickled vegetables and herbs are delicious. But probably because of its location, the Banh Mi at Baoguette is slightly more expensive than those in Chinatown ($5 vs $3.75). But I am sure people who live and work around Kips Bay area would be perfectly happy to pay $5 for a good sandwich. I would too.

Oooh...looks like I'll have to make a lunch trip there soon! Is it better than Banh Mi Saigon Bakery?

hmm...I would say, equally tasty. You probably get more choices of Banh Mi at Banh Mi Saigon Bakery than at Baoguette. I actually like the sweet minced sausage in the sandwich I get from Chinatown's Banh Mi places, but I don't think Baoguette has it. But the bread, pork terine, pate, pulled pork are nice. btw, medium spicy is quite spicy :)
