Friday Night Out: Boon Boon Café

Almost every Friday night the BF and I go out to eat. It is a way to celebrate making it through another week. So I will often be posting about these adventures on the weekend.  At least when we visit a restaurant I haven’t already written about here. Don’t want to get repetitive.
This week we visited Boon Boon Café. This is a place we have been to many, many times. Enough times that the waitress knows our usual. We always get the Sesame Tofu, which is battered and fried tofu with a sweet sesame sauce. Lately the waitress has been giving us a little of each of their three sauces so we can have some of each. They are: orange, sesame, and Korean BBQ. It is hard to decide which is my favorite between the BBQ and the sesame. The BBQ is more like a spicy sweet and sour sauce and is delicious.
The second dish was the Pad Woon Sen Tofu, which is jelly noodles with veggies and tofu. This was our first time ordering this one (usually we get the Cashew Nut Tofu) and I really loved the jelly noodles!
When you look at the in-restaurant menu, this place doesn’t appear to be super veg-friendly. But they will make most dishes with tofu instead of meat, just ask! Also, with any Asian restaurant, you may want to ask about any fish or oyster sauce that may be lurking.
Overall we love this restaurant (hence the many visits)!
