This might be my last live review for some time given circumstances, so I’ll keep it brief. The new Viet Citron in between HMart/Market Basket and Trader Joe’s has opened, and it’s dang good. The space is open and bright, and the food is quality–it was still just a soft open when I went on Saturday, so the menu is limited (but there’s more stuff coming). The crispy pork belly banh mi is great if a bit sloppy (and not cheap at 12$) , and the fresh rolls are excellent. The chicken pho (with free range chicken, supposedly) looks aces, but we were in takeout mode that day. They also clearly make their own pickled daikon and cucumber, and there’s a house garlic/chili thing to add on that is top notch. Last note: they have free bird chilis out you can take and add to the sandwich, and, y’now, that’s the kind of thing you like to see.
Promising, though I hope they don’t get off on the wrong foot with the unlucky timing for their opening. Location isn’t the greatest either, but it’s worth a look.
