Best new banh mi: Baoguette



Add +

If the Vietnamese banh mi is a study in contrasts, then Baoguette's signature is the definitive text. Three forms of sweet and juicy pork (pt, terrine and pulled) are stuffed into a crusty French loaf, their fatty flavor offset by bright strands of pickled carrot and daikon radish, enhanced by notes of fresh cilantro, and given a final depth of flavor with garlicky aioli and hot sriracha sauce. Add in a friendly price (starting at $5), and we've got the perfect lunch. Baoguette 61 Lexington Ave between 25th and 26th Sts (212-518-4089)
