Soon after, Bo Kong’s other location in Richmond also shut down.
Now, there’s good news for those of us who’ve been missing Bo Kong’s special brand of deep-fried taro and soya milk, and “tasty fresh” shiitake mushrooms.
Earlier this month, Po Kong Vegetarian Restaurant opened at 1334 Kingsway at Clark Drive.
Upon arriving at the restaurant, one can’t help but recognize the familiar menu posted on the window, same pictures and all.
During a visit this week, a server told our dinner party that Po Kong has the same owners, chefs, and staff as Bo Kong.
The food also hasn’t changed much.
In addition to the aforementioned dishes, we ordered the stuffed wonton soup, braised bean curd skin rolls, and chef’s special fried rice.
While the taro and soy milk combination, as well as the bean curd rolls, were slightly less delicious than I remember, the food looked and tasted pretty much the same as it did on Main.
