What to Eat at Baoguette and Pho Sure (Bull’s Penis, for Starters)

By

We have to admit, when we received the menus for Thao Nguyen and Michael Bao's Baoguette 3 and its attached restaurant, Pho Sure (opening Monday on Christopher Street), we werent in much of a rush to examine them. Bnh m, pho, yeah yeah yeah weve seen it all before. But when Metromix pointed out that a soup containing bulls penis is on the menu, we had to take a closer look. A challenger to Kenka in the glans game? Were also excited to see blood pudding offered New Yorks Vietnamese eateries have always been more squeamish about featuring this on the menu than, say, L.A.s. See the rest of the offerings below.
