Last week I stopped by Baoguette Cafe on St. Marks, part of Michael "Bao" Huynh's Vietnamese restaurant empire. This small little cafe has food with big flavor. It's a great spot.
I started with the spring rolls ($6), and they were fabulous! I always order spring rolls when I dine at Vietnamese restaurants in Chinatown, and these were just as good as any I've had, if not better. Crunchy, flavorful, and tasty, the NYC Foodie was a happy camper!
Baoguette Cafe's version of the sloppy joe, the Sloppy Bao ($7.25), spicy red curry beef, green mango, basil, lemongrass, cilantro, and jalapeno was a fine rendition. It packed some great, powerful, flavor.
So when you are in the mood for some quick Vietnamese bites with a bang, Baoguette Cafe does a body good.
