I’m very glad to be able to tell you that we now have Vietnamese street food in nearby Brattleboro, Vermont, just a short drive from our New Hampshire bed and breakfast! It comes to us in a new food truck that is parked in the Harmony Parking Lot daily for the lunch crowd, Monday through Saturday from 11:00 until 3:00. The name of the truck is Humble Kitchen and it is owned by James Smith and Amy Gallant.
The day that we went for lunch at the truck it was pouring rain out and Amy took our order while under an umbrella, while James was cooking in the cozy truck. We had delicious sandwiches, called Bahn Mi, one chicken and one pork pate, as well as a serving of Pho which was a delicious chicken soup with noodles and chili, lime, basil, cilantro and mint. We also had ginger basil limeade and mango wontons for dessert- delicious! It was an excellent lunch, and who ever thought that we would be able to enjoy Vietnamese street food just 10 minutes away from our Romantic New Hampshire getaway!
James and Amy had both worked at the Flat Street Bar and Restaurant and when it was flooded out by Hurricane Irene, it gave them a chance to make changes and think of new ways to be employed and still work in the food business. In May, they opened the Humble Kitchen, which is a great addition to Brattleboro’s food scene.
