An Insider Glimpse into New Year’s Traditions

Our team was fortunate to sit down last week with Jackie Nguyen, owner extraordinaire of Cafe Cà Phê, Kansas City’s first Vietnamese coffee shop, for a discussion on multi-cultural Asian traditions surrounding the Lunar New Year. This discussion was part of One Kansas City Radio’s “Change Makers – Kansas City” show with owner Theresa Ng, partner Nicole Ortiz along with daughter Rebecca Clark joining in on the conversation of family traditions in China, Malaysia and Vietnam during the most important holiday of the year. This holiday actually lasts two weeks and culminates with the Lantern Festival on February 15.

It was such a unique opportunity for these long time and new local Asian entrepreneurs to share in educating listeners with a personal glimpse into their traditions. Please sit back and enjoy listening to this fascinating discussion.

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!
