Bon Me Chestnut Hill

Bon Me in Chestnut Hill is the latest location for this quickly expanding food empire. They started with food trucks that were wildly successfully and have since started to move into B/M stores.

They are located in the newly renovated Chestnut Hill Square open-air shopping mall.

The menu is simple, Salads come in a box and the Rice Bowls in a bowl.

Interior is simple and utilitarian and I liked the plants on the wall.

You order at the counter and then pick up there as well.

I went with the Sandwich ($6.50). "Your choice of a filling on a toasted baguette stuffed with pickled carrots and daikon, cucumber, cilantro, red onion, housemade spicy mayo, and pork pate." This is really a Banh Mi not sure why they call it just a sandwich. I picked the CHINESE BBQ PORK as my filling. "A sweet and savory Bon Me version of Chinese roasted Char Siu Pork." The pork was excellent, very tender and tasty and there was a good amount of pork on the sandwich. The bread was not as light as I have had in other Banh Mi places but it was very fresh and had a nice crust. The engineering of the sandwich could have been better. The pork was on one side and the veggies on the other with the nice and spicy mayo. The only way this makes sense is to put the sandwich on its side and then eat it that way but if you do that all the fillings fall out. The sandwich was seriously big as well. Overall I was very happy with my lunch.
