Gather 'Round, Kids.
You may be a Bon Me regular, but have you ever heard the story of how our booming food truck business began?
5 years ago, Patrick Lynch and Ali Fong entered the City of Boston's Food Truck Contest, with the intentions of showcasing some of their favorite home recipes and having a little competitive fun.
Much to their surprise, the dynamic duo ended up winning the contest, allowing them to very literally hit the road with their food.
They picked up an old & yellow DHL delivery truck from a guy named Big Jim, and plastered their new name on the side: BON ME.
The name Bon Me derives from the bánh mì sandwich, a classic and delicious Vietnamese favorite. Our Bon Me sandwich is a decidedly nontraditional bánh mì that tackles both American, French and Asian flavors with every bite. Our many other entrees and side dishes follow our popular sandwiches lead in terms of taste and freshness!
Today, we have 6 colorful food trucks and 5 restaurants constantly bustling around the city of Boston. The company truly has come a long way.
Don't believe us? Check out the video owners Pat and Ali made five years ago that showcases the original Bon Me logo!
If you're familiar with our restaurants, then we're sure you know what we're talking about when we say that our beautiful storefronts have a little something special to offer. Like our trucks, we've got a delicious rotation of delectable meats to choose from, as well as our four mouth watering entrees.
But what do our restaurants have that our trucks do not? Lemongrass Fried Chicken, Japanese Sweet Potato Fries, and Pork Ramen, that's what!
These entrees are the perfect way to put a spin on your Bon Me experience. Our Lemongrass Fried Chicken is Gluten Friendly and served in bite sized portions with a side of our seriously addicting Spicy Mayo. Available only at Bon Me Chestnut Hill Sq and Fresh Pond.
