Oh, what a day! My first two sandwicher! Probably not the healthiest of days, The Quest is too short not to enjoy this!
Maybe I was just still glowing from the previous sandwich, but I had a feeling this one was going to be special. I had that “before a great concert excitement” feeling. I was not let down in the least. And I will continue to endorse this sandwich to anyone that will listen.
Baoguette seemed like a hole in the wall from the outside. One the inside, this was a joint that served me a sandwich clearly deserving to be on this list. The Sloppy Bao was like a mature, Vietnamese sloppy joe, and it wasn’t even that sloppy. I nervously asked for it spicy, and it had just enough heat to make my eyes water and for me to get a second Peach Snapple Ice Tea, but not enough where I couldn’t put it down. The sweeeeetness of the of the curried beef and green mango really balanced out the spiciness of all those jalapeños. The bread was perfect – fresh and crunchy. It was the perfect size for a sandwich. I wasn’t disgustingly full, yet I definitely didn’t think about food for the rest of the night.
And this baby is only $7. I also found there is another Baoguette less than 10 blocks from where I work. I taste danger.
