128 Chapel St, Windsor
Filling: 4/5 (BBQ Chicken)
Okay, when I originally reviewed Nguyen’s Hot Bread, I was fairly inexperienced and hadn’t yet been to many bakeries throughout the city. I went back recently and wasn’t as blown away as my first visit.
Bánh mì is still nice here. The BBQ chicken that I ordered was tasty enough, but not as moist as it could be, especially at peak service time. An alternative, roast pork with crackling, is usually quite good, though both are over six dollars which is borderline too expensive. Serves are generous and pâté is offered, but a lack of soy or salt and pepper really harms the overall combination. Nguyen’s is good without being great.
