Bon Me is run by Boston-bred duo Patrick Lynch and Ali Fong. The business was born in 2010 when the two decided to enter the City of Boston’s Food Truck Contest on a whim and surprised themselves by winning. With their win came the opening of the first Bon Me truck in 2011.
Six years and lots of sandwiches, rice bowls, and noodle salads later, Bon Me has expanded to eight bright and colorful food trucks, two food carts, and five restaurants in Kendall Square, Fort Point, Fresh Pond, Boston Public Market, and Chestnut Hill Square. All locations are proudly serving the community Bold, Fresh, and Fun Asian cuisine.
The name and food are inspired by the classic Vietnamese bánh mì sandwich. The Bon Me Sandwich, their most popular item, is a decidedly non-authentic bánh mì, and those daring enough to take a step outside the traditional are sure to be met with a tasty meal made with the freshest ingredients and full of bold, unique flavors.
"We strive to make as many house made items as we can. From the drinks to the dressings, if we can make it from scratch, we will. We’re also aware of the many dietary restrictions our customers have – as a result, there are numerous vegan, vegetarian and gluten friendly options on board. Just ask the order taker or check out our menu page for more details!" - Owner, Alison Fong
