Before heading to Che-licious that’s only a couple of blocks away, Grape and I started off our roving dinner at Baoguette Vietnamese Bistro.

Just because of its name, we had to order banh mi, aka their Baoguettes. We got the Grilled Lemongrass Pork ($5.95) that was lined with pickled veggies, onions and cilantro. It tastes as you would expect, with each flavour standing its own yet not overpowering the others. The bread was okay; it could’ve been crispier on the outside.

What stole the show for me was the Saté Pho with Beef or Chicken ($10.25). It was aromatic, heaty and coconut-y – it reminded me a lot of a flavourful thai curry.

The meat portion could’ve been a bit larger, but I didn’t mind too much because the broth was so rich and the noodles were cooked amazingly. Must eat with spoon and chopsticks to ensure maximum enjoyment of broth and noodles.

Overall, I liked Baoguette’s banh mi more than Che-licious. It was simple, but done right. But the dish that will have me coming back will be the Saté Pho pho sure.
