If you are looking for a very tasty, yet affordable lunch, you have come to the right place at Boguette. Here they have turned the making of Vietnamese-style sandwiches, also known as Banh Mi, into a true art. You can also quench your thirst with a delicious bubble tea.
Banh Mi literally means 'sandwich' in Vietnamese. It is a baguette filled with Vietnamese-style meat such as meatloaf, grilled sausage, or chicken.
