NPR interview with the Ng Family

It feels like an eternity since last October when the Bo Lings founding couple, Theresa and Richard Ng, and their children met with Francis Lam during The Splendid Table’s taping of interviews with several other local restaurateurs. This weekly NPR program, hosted by award-winning food writer, Francis Lam, focuses on the fascinating aspects of today’s food world.
The lively interview with Theresa, Rebecca and Raymond was featured during a segment on Chinese food in America where Francis Lam explores how Bo Lings was founded, speaking with two generations for an inside glimpse into the hard work and dedication that made the restaurant what it is today.
Enjoy listening and thank you Kansas City for supporting us all these years!

It’s National Noodle Month!

Do you know the origin of noodles? The earliest record dates back to the Han Dynasty in China during 2nd century BC. Unleavened dough is mainly made from wheat or rice and is rolled, cut, stretched, kneaded, banged, flicked from a chopstick (true!), shaved, peeled or hand-pulled. Check out the variety of noodles that we use in our dishes at Bo Lings!

Come Taste Our New Spring Dishes

New Spring Dishes

Chef/Owner Richard Ng loves spring and the fresh seasonal vegetables that come with it – especially after the long KC winter we experienced this year! Asparagus are making their appearance in markets everywhere and Chef Richard has added Fresh Asparagus with Mushrooms served in a light ginger sauce as well as other new dishes including Stir-Fried Spring Spinach in Garlic and Sichuan Douban Fish. Be sure to ask your server for a list of all the items.
