Bà & Mẹ Vietnamese Eatery - Callicoon, NY/Honesdale, PA
Bà & Mẹ is a growing chain of Vietnamese restaurants that includes a takeout location in Callicoon, NY, and a café across the border in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Both Bà & Mẹ restaurants serve a focused menu featuring simple Vietnamese dishes such as summer rolls filled with vegetables and herbs; pho noodle soup garnished with bean sprouts and Thai basil; and a variety of pork, chicken, beef and vegetarian preparations available on fresh baguettes or over jasmine rice or vermicelli rice noodles. The food is skillfully prepared and made from very fresh, high quality ingredients sourced whenever possible from local farms and purveyors.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
The founder of Bà & Mẹ, Nhi Mundy, was born in Vietnam and immigrated to America with her parents after the Vietnam War. She grew up working at her parent’s restaurant before relocating to New York. In 2012, she and her family left the city to live fulltime in the Catskills. It was then that Nhi felt the lack of healthy, ethnic food options in the area and was inspired to create Bà & Mẹ.
