Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

The B’s Kitchen

$$$$
Nicolai McCrary

On the corner of Cesar Chavez and Chicon, you’ll probably notice the aroma of char-grilled meats long before you even see the small food trailer out front of a gas station parking lot. The menu here is simple, focusing on a few Vietnamese classics like com chien (fried rice), bun thit nuong, and of course, banh mi. It’s a great option for pickup, with fast and friendly service, and a few picnic tables out front if you want to enjoy your meal straight from the kitchen.

We’re big fans of the banh mi here. The bread is coated in an intense layer of microblisters that adds a really great texture to every bite, while the inside remains perfectly soft. They also make their own chili sauce, which packs a little heat and some extra roasted flavor.

Pork Belly Banh Mi

The pork belly banh mi is probably their most popular item, and with good reason. A long strip of tender, grilled meat runs down the middle of a toasted baguette, accompanied by a handful of pickled carrots and cucumbers. It’s just the right amount to balance out the richness of the pork belly.

Pork Shoulder Banh Mi

Our personal favorite, the pork shoulder banh mi is dressed the same as the pork belly, but with just a little more bite in the meat. The pork is cut into smaller, bite-sized pieces, so there’s more surface area to pick up some char from the fire.

Bun Ga Nuong

The vermicelli bowls here are another great choice, and almost enough for two full meals. Their menu only lists bun thit nuong (grilled pork) but when you order you’ll have your choice of meat. We went with the chicken - it’s juicy and savory, and tastes great over a bed of vermicelli noodles, covered in fried onions.
