A common face among Boston food trucks will mark the opening of its fifth brick-and-mortar restaurant with an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, December 30. Bon Me is moving into Chestnut Hill Square (200 Boylston St.), where it joins Sweetgreen, Seasons 52, and soon Oath Craft Pizza, among others, Boston Restaurant Talk reports.
Bon Me is known for its Vietnamese-inspired street food and will have samples and bubble tea on hand for the grand opening.
The Bon Me concept began as a food truck, after owners Alison Fong and Patrick Lynch won the City of Boston's Food Truck Challenge in 2010. The two (who are married) expanded their idea and now operate six food trucks in the area, in addition to their restaurants and a location in the new Boston Public Market.
The restaurant focuses on locally sourced ingredients for their assortment of sandwiches, noodle and rice bowls, and salads.
Each meal has a create-your-own style series of options, with fillings that include roasted soy and paprika tofu, spice rubbed chicken, Chinese barbecue pork, and miso-braised pulled pork, plus a range of rotating selections. There are also sides (like deviled tea eggs) and drinks (such as Vietnamese iced coffee), and items can be made vegetarian or vegan.
The Chestnut Hill location will be open Monday to Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
