At Lunch Now: Boi Sandwich is Now Open on 3rd Ave

The long awaited Vietnamese take out place Boi Sandwich has finally opened on 3rd Ave btw 44+45th. Unlike its sister restaurant Boi to Go, which has some seating, the new sandwich place is take out only (and cash only for the time being.) I know a lot of you refuse to pay $7.50 for a banh mi, but it’s all we’ve got (and now one ave closer to Midtown proper!)

In addition to the banh mi, which appear to be the same as Boi to Go, they are also offering noodle bowls, rice bowls, Asian burritos (hello!), and salads ($7 to $8). It may take awhile, but I think I may
have to eat through the entire menu.


  • I tried the chicken noodle bowl and it was pretty decent. The portions are big but I didn’t feel heavy and ill afterward, which is a new and interesting thing for me.

  • Note to MLers on the southern boundary…. Baoguette on Lexington between 25th and 26th does a solid bahn mi. Much, much better than Boi to Go, and it’s only $5 (though some of the exotic flavors, like Spicy Catfish are $7)

  • Totally disappointing. I ordered the banh mi and they didn’t even remember to put on any pate. And it was far from spicy. Not worth the $7.50 when there are som many other good banh mi sandwiches around the city.
