With the days getting longer the food truck craze is in full swing – and for good reason. It’s a great way to get unique, flavorsome food all over the city without leaving your neighborhood. I love that the rotating schedules and ever changing menus ensure that your daily lunch will always be different. A favorite food truck of mine is Bon Me.
Bon Me is the brainchild of a Boston-bred husband and wife team who on a whim decided to compete in the City of Boston’s Food Truck Contest – and won! The result is a casual, healthy, and fresh spin on Vietnamese street food. Bon Me’s approach is easy and accessible – they specialize in four main dishes; noodle salad, rice bowl, noodle soup, or sandwich. In a DIY style, you then fill your main dish with either a standard filling such as BBQ pork, roasted tofu, and spiced chicken, or check out what rotating special fillings they have available that day. Finally, load up on extras like miso veggies, Asian slaw or deviled eggs. You can’t wrong with their main dishes, but just don’t forget to order one of their famous iced tea lemonades!
