Bo Bo Garden: Buford Highway

Bo Bo Garden: Buford Highway
I have been stalking the progress of this spot–which was formerly a Korean restaurant–in Pine Tree Plaza every time I visit Chicago Supermarket for Mexican goodies. And it has finally opened. No time to do a full post (this wedding planning business is bananas), but I have to say it was good…really good. The restaurant’s name means “hot pot garden” and it specializes in Cantonese cooking. The owners are from Hong Kong. The menu is about as big as Wan Lai and the food was just as good. Another plus is that they plan to be open 7 days a week until 2 a.m. depending on the day; they are closed on Tuesdays for now.

The restaurant is importing some sort of special hot pot materials to make use of these leftover from the past from Hong Kong and will be expanding the menu accordingly. There is so much more to explore on the menu. More to come…

    Is that where Korea Garden used to be? It looks like that corner spot in the plaza from your photo. Didn't know it had closed.

    You'll be able to function just fine with english. I went there for lunch, and the menu has english translations for all of the items.

    I had the crispy garlic chicken and it was really good. The lunch prices are quite low, especially for the quality of the food.

    After eating try the $25 foot massage place next to this restaurant. Pure heaven!

    I have been to Bo Bo twice already – once on Friday and again today. It's that good! I had the Pork with taro and XO sauce the first time. The pork spareribs were succulent little bits of meat, the taro had a potato-like texture and the rice was crusty on the bottom where it stuck to the bowl. Our server was wonderful. He poured the XO sauce on my dish and told me what to expect flavor-wise.

    Today, I had the fried prawns (heads on) with steamed rice. Our server – same guy – made me a special dipping sauce of garlic and scallions cooked in hot oil and then placed in a bowl of soy sauce. Delicious! I highly recommend this spot. I plan on going back in the evening to try the hot pots which are their specialty.

    I love the foot massage place next door. Best massage deal in town. $40 for a 30 minute foot rub and a 30 minute back rub? I'm sold.

    chilli: I was there today at too. I think I may have scoped your shrimp out on my way to the cashier (assuming you were there at lunch). LOL.

    P.S. The Hong Kong style lobster is worth the splurge. We got a huge plate with dried black bean, fried garlic, cilantro, etc. for $22.

    Oh, how lovely are your suggestions, Miss Jennifer. We heart Han Il Kwan and are now devotees of the Buford Highway Farmers Market, thanks to you. But the jewel in your reco crown must be your review of Bo Bo Garden. We went last night and had crazy good s&p calamari, three dumplings soup, and an ambrosial lobster congee that was the stuff of pure joy. We salute you!
