At the Bobo's house.
Meet Tim and Lara Bobo...hardworking, loving individuals who can whip up an unforgettable meal. This duo...they are like peanut butter and jelly...they really really really compliment each other. Tim is the chef...for this meal he started the broth 12 hours before it hit our lips and the meat that he slowly cooked to perfection was started the day before to ensure the most succulent pork you have ever tasted. Lara is the designer...she creates the feel and the look of the meal...she ensures that you enjoy the meal with your eyes before you taste what lovely flavors it has to offer. Put these two talents together and whala you have the most delightful meal imaginable in front of you.
So a little about the ethnic food in Fred..yes there are a couple of spots in Fred where you can enjoy a bit that hard to find cuisine. Ginger and Spice offers some pretty good Thai curry dishes and Panda serves tasty Chinese vittles but to get something that really hits the spot...you must go to the Bobos.
On the menu tonight:
Bubbly Ginger Lemon Tea
Homemade Pork Buns with hoisin, radish, and cilantro
(Tim used a recipe from one of he and Lara's favorite restaurants, Momofuko)
Homemade Mochi filled with chocolate ice cream (on top of a homemade mousse)
Did I say homemade enough...because I want to emphasize the awesomeness of how everything was made from scratch...a lost art...something that these days we don't devote our time to. And yes, perhaps we are too busy to cook from scratch all of the time BUT there is something so special about eating something that someone worked so very hard on...that someone mixed and baked and cooked and roasted for your enjoyment. Thank you Bobo's for hands down my best ethnic cuisine experience in Fredericksburg of all time! The depth of flavor in that broth has jaded me forever...I will never be able to make a broth as delightfully tasty as that!
