Mr. Baguette Has Great Croissants, Too

 

By Bill Coburn

 

As I’ve traveled around the San Gabriel Valley checking out restaurants, I noticed that there seem to be more and more places that feature “Banh Mi”.  When I stopped at Mr. Baguette, located on Valley Blvd., just west of Rosemead Blvd., I found out what this is all about.  Banh is the Vietnamese word for bread (from the French “pain” pronounced “pan.”  Basically, Banh Mi is a Vietnamese sandwich, usually made with a baguette, which has its roots in the French influence on Vietnam.

 

Bryant Tang opened Mr. Baguette back in 2003, and has built up one heck of a business.  Every time I’ve been there, the place has been hopping, but there’s enough people working so that the food is prepared quickly for you.  To give you an idea, when I stopped in for lunch today, there were three cashiers keeping the lines moving.  There were 8 people in the sandwich area, getting things made and delivered to customers.  I have no idea how many people were in back keeping things going.  But I’m guessing there are a few, because the bakery kicks out fresh bread every half hour.

 

Tang has received a “master of charcuterie” certification (that’s a French term for maker of meats) and turns out some wonderful baguettes and croissants.  The croissant sandwich I got filled up the very good sized to-go container I received it in, and I’m guessing it was about 8” long by close to 6” deep.  It was light, flaky and delicious.  I bought a 30” baguette, and at $1.15 per baguette, I reaped a significant savings when compared with the cost of baguettes at most places I’ve picked them up in the past.   And this was a good one, it reminded me of the ones I had on the Left Bank in Paris many years ago.

 

Mr. Baguette has outdoor dining in a “garden” area that features wrought iron “French café” style chairs, and there is a good sized seating area inside as well.  There are big display cases filled with croissants, pates and head cheese.  Baguettes come regular or sesame style, which costs a little more.  There are 41 different sandwich items on the menu, though many of the items are the same, just offered on sesame baguette instead of regular.  There’s a pork meat loaf sandwich, grilled beef sandwich, meatball sandwich, a Saigon bacon sandwich, roast beef, pate, ham, and many more.  You can view the entire Mr. Baguette menu at www.sangabrielvalleymenus.com/mrbaguette 

 

I tried the ham baguette sandwich, a turkey croissant sandwich, and the newest item, a grilled chicken sandwich.  All of these sandwiches included cheese, lettuce and tomato.  All three of these sandwiches, plus the 30” baguette, plus tax, was under $13.00.  The baguette sandwiches were 12” sandwiches, and had plenty of meat.  The croissant sandwich was made on their large croissant, and was also filled with plenty of meat.  They’ve got to be doing it on volume, because they are certainly not priced to make money on each individual sandwich.  The grilled chicken sandwich had lots of chunks of grilled spicy chicken, and is a heckuva deal at just $3.25.

 

Another thing about Mr. Baguette is the wide selection of beverages they have available.  In addition to fountain drinks and bottled water, you’ll find a selection of fruit slushies, smoothies, French coffee, Boba milk tea and Boba Thai tea. 

 

I recommend the sandwiches at Mr. Baguette, and I can also guarantee you I’ll be stopping in to take advantage of their incredible prices on the delicious and fresh baguettes and croissants.
