Since Boston natives Patrick Lynch and Ali Fong won the City of Boston’s Food Truck contest in 2011, their delicious Vietnamese-inspired dishes have become a city staple. With six food trucks and five restaurants covering everywhere from Fort Point to Chestnut Hill, chances are that you’re never too far from an unforgettable banh mi, rice bowl, or salad.
