NEW YORK: Baoguette

Posted in food, new york, restaurants by sue on February 18, 2010

Multiple locations, but the one I went to:
37 St. Marks Place, New York, NY 10003
Hours: 11-12am Sun-Thu / 11-2am Fri-Sat
212 380 1487

PRICE: Cheap for Manhattan (approx $8/dish), but double the price of Chinatown & it’s cash only.
RATING: Love it.
DIRECTIONS: 6 to Astor, RW to 8th Street
RESERVATIONS: You don’t need them, but there are only a few seats available
MUST GET: First timers, get the sloppy bao or the classic.

First it was cupcakes, now it’s Vietnamese sandwiches.  These sandwich shops are popping up everywhere in the city.  And while I prefer the ones in Chinatown for authenticity and price, I have to say I love Baoguette.  (It doesn’t hurt that it’s not that far from my apartment as well!)  The sloppy bao and catfish sandwiches are great variations of your average Vietnamese sandwich, but their classic is also delicious.  I also recommend their pho and spring rolls, but their pork chops are something you can pass on.
