Cheap Eats: Bo Bo Garden

The pepper salt pork spare ribs at Bo Bo Garden
Movement among the chefs of Atlanta’s Chinese restaurants is quite fascinating and entertaining to follow. Here’s how it goes down: Immediately after a restaurant’s popularity peaks, the chef jumps ship and is suddenly cooking down the street or, in the case of Tasty China’s original chef Peter Chang, another city. Poaching with the lure of higher paychecks is how it’s inevitably done. But you can’t fault another restaurateur for seeking out the best.
Thus, the news that Wan Lai’s chef Danny Ting had moved to Bo Bo Garden (5181 Buford Highway, Pine Tree Plaza, 678-547-1881) was far from surprising. He had proven himself uniquely talented with the Cantonese/Hong Kong-style casseroles he served at Wan Lai along with his 14 years of experience in the industry. But, for now, chef Ting doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. He’s not only the chef at Bo Bo Garden, but also a partner with co-owners Kay Chan and Lynn Ng.

    I understand why it occurs but it irritates me on occasions when Korean chefs switch restaurants also (which occurs frequently also). I just don't like being surprised with "new" food that I didn't come for!

    I still love Bo Bo! I enjoy talking to Kay and he enjoys serving me off-the-menu dishes every time I visit. He hasn't steered me wrong yet. It's a match made in heaven. Highly recommended!
