Banh Mi Huong Que Is Opening in the Former New Saigon Sandwich Space in Boston's Chinatown

Several months ago, it was reported that a popular spot in downtown Boston for Vietnamese sandwiches had closed permanently. Now we have learned that another Vietnamese sandwich shop is moving into the space.

According to a Twitter post from @jgmahoney, Banh Mi Huong Que is opening on Washington Street, taking over the former New Saigon Sandwich space on the edge of Chinatown. The tweet shows a sign up for the new place, though little information can be found about it online other than the fact that the city granted them a common victualler license earlier this fall.

New Saigon Sandwich was known mainly for its banh mi, while also offering spring rolls, teriyaki chicken, fried rice, bubble tea, and more.

The address for Banh Mi Huong Que is 696 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02111.

[January 29, 2021 update: According to an article from Eater Boston, Banh Mi Huong Que is now open.]
