Baget is a healthy student eat and I have been to both Bagets in the city. Here they do awesome Bhanh Mi’s ( or Vietnamese baguettes as you might like to call them). The owner Duy is a lovely guy and RMIT Newintstudents has met him a few times. He is down to earth and humbled and it shows in his food. RMIT Newintstudents have been a few times for their events and Leandro has been only once or twice.
Eat and Be Merry really likes the place. Andrew from Foodscrazy also liked it. A few bloggers were invited to their last event which included tapas and lots of them and tales. One thing that I know is that they are good at their vegetarian Bhanh Mi and they showed us how to make the pork one at their latest shindig which we were invited to. This involved lots of champagne and merry making.
I have sat outside a few times and on a sunny day like today outside is always nice. I have tried to make rice paper rolls last time at their event and it was quite fun to do. But mine kept on breaking. I have also made pickled carrots one time and my carrot sticks were quite thick. After a few days my fridge smelt very pickly. Making the bhanh mi at this event was fun.
Leandro and I watched them make the Bhanh Mi. It was a lot of fun and the Bhanh Mi tastes just as good as always. The staff are always friendly and are happy to talk whilst making the bhanh mi. In fact someone on Zomato started complaining about the loud music. In fact I am fine with this and they don’t always have loud music. In fact it is the other way round.
As a vegetarian lover I am a fan of their Buddha’s bowl which is grilled tofu and vermicelli. Here you can pick this up for $10 as a huge serve. The tofu was cooked perfectly. I loved the fish sauce in here.
I have never tried cassava cake but this was really good. It was not too sweet and very fluffy on the inside.
Do come by Baget for your quick and healthy lunch or early dinner ffix as they are open from 10:30am-6:30pm and their staff are really lovely and care about the customers.
