Bon Me Truck

Over the weekend, I had the chance to go out for brunch with a couple girlfriends to Union in the South End which I totally recommend.  In fact, I’d really love to go back like asap.  The food is really good, the vibe is great, and it’s nicely priced.  The portions could be a little bigger, or I could be less of a fatty… but let’s be serious here, the portions could be a little bigger.  Right after we ate, we headed over to the South End Open Market.  It’s a big favorite on the weekends and as it turns out – the food trucks are like all over this.  Every food truck that I’d ever heard of in the Boston area shows up for this.  I was so mad at myself for not having enough room in my stomach for like every truck’s food there.  I decided that I Had to try Bon Me.  First of all, bon me’s are all similar – Vietnamese sandwiches with some pork, some veggies, and some nice spicy sauce.  This Bon Me was Huge.  It was the size of a Subway Footlong, but of course much much better.  I had a few bites and then saved the rest for Abe to eat later.  It was well worth the $6 they sell it for, I felt like I stole it from them or something.  That could easily sell for $10.  The longest line by far was Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, but I wasn’t about to wait forever for a freaking grilled cheese… maybe next time. 

The open market continues for the rest of the month – it’s dog friendly, and you don’t actually have to buy or eat anything at all.  It’s just sort of a really good time and there’s lots of meter parking, which is cool too.  I totally recommend bringing your appetite and some cash, your stomach will thank you!
