Banh Mi Quest

bonme2.jpgChowder contributor Richard Chudy's latest column in the ongoing "Man Food" series details his quest for the perfect banh mi, the Vietnamese sandwich that may be the single greatest taste-to-price value in the country. Chudy draws samples from 163 Vietnamese Sandwich in Chinatown, the Bon Me food truck, and Pho Viet in Allston. Of the three, Chudy sides with Pho Viet: "the bread was airy and ultra-crispy, the toppings were incredibly fresh, and the salty-sweet lemongrass-marinated grilled pork was the most flavorful."
