Bo Bites – Banh Mi Bistro Vietnamese Eatery

(Lyrics – Maroon 5 – Sugar)

I don’t wanna be hungry for lunch
I just wanna be eating your food
And it’s killing me when I’m hungry
ooh, Bo Bites
Cause I really don’t care where you are
I just wanna be there when you open
And I gotta get one little taste

Banh Mi
Yes, please
Won’t you come and make some for me?
I’m right here, ’cause I need
Little spice and a lot of fresh veggies
Yeah, you serve me good coffee
Make it alright
Need a little Banh Mi for my bite
Banh Mi
Yes, please
Won’t you come and make some for me?

No PHO FO sure!

I’m very happy to see Banh Mi Bistro try to educate the valley about Banh Mi sandwiches and Vietnamese cuisine which doesn’t only encompasses the one and only – Pho! Banh Mi Bistro showcases traditional Banh Mi along with other sandwiches with more recognizable ingredients.

I went for the traditional Banh Mi; a French baguette with pickled carrots, daikon, cilantro, jalapeno, and Vietnamese ham and pate. The bread was extra flaky and crunchy the way it should be while the cilantro and pickled vegetables brought a soothing and aromatic bite! The sandwich itself is about 12 inches long so sharing is not a bad idea especially if you plan to get other items. The second time I came around I went for the Noodle Bowl with pork and eggrolls. Overall, a solid dish with fresh cut cucumbers, romaine lettuce, crispy eggrolls and Vietnamese seasoned pork served with a sweet and spicy hot sauce. I like mines with a bit of a kick so I added some Siracha. The bowl itself is well portioned in my opinion; not too much and not too less. I also ordered me the Vietnamese ice coffee; a potent caffeinated coffee with condensed milk be prepared to stay away!

In the end, the place was clean and modern. The service and staff seemed very genuine and helpful educating their patrons along with welcoming back regular customers. Overall and A+ from Bo Bites! – Enjoy!
