Bo is still open!

Took a chance and ran by 59th & Kissena Blvd on
Saturday night - Bo has pretty lively food for such a
dead place.

Quick notes...

Potato pancakes are gummy and skippable...steamed
short ribs with veggies were deeply flavorful and
succulent...sauteed pork with fiery kimchi was set off
by some triangles of soothing tofu...shrimp with baby
bokchoy - nicely done, with tasty, almost over rich
sauce, but I gotta tell you, the small portion of
small shrimp was disappointing.

I didn't stay to check out any deserts, but the staff
themselves were some of the sweetest people I've met
in months. (When one of my companions dribbled sauce
down his shirt, the chef herself presented him with
handy Tide-wipe)

Overall, I rather liked Bo, but wouldn't make an
overly long trek to get to it. Luckily, I'm a bit
more local, so I'm going back to try that chicken
ginseng soup someone mentioned a few days back.
