I went with the grilled beef Bahn mi, and it was a tasty sandwich, but different from my beloved version from Hong Cuc in Lowell. The beef was tender enough and had good flavor, but I felt like it dominated the rest of the sandwich. Part of what I like about the Bahn mi is that it is an ensemble of flavors and textures– there are plenty of places for me to get a good beef sandwich. My co-worker tried the grilled pork and said that it was also delicious. Their spring rolls were flavorful and crispy, not at all oily.
Hong Cuc remains my favorite, but for $3.50, Pho Viet’s version is an excellent choice in the Boston area.
