The much anticipated ramen bar, Boru, is now open in Waldo at 500 W75th St. I haven’t eaten there yet–but everyone I know wants to try it! I hear it’s very busy during typical lunch and dinner hours. Another hot spot for Brookside/Waldo diners!
A little background: Owners Andy Lock and Domhall Molloy also own the successful Summit Grill, just west of Boru. The culinary director, Po Wang, is a native of Taiwan.
Boru’s website offers menu details and a very helpful glossary for those folks not familiar with this type of cuisine. Featured options include steamed baos (buns stuffed with goodies); several salads (including cold noodle and crispy Brussel sprout ), ramen bowls with ‘add on’ options (egg, pork belly, tofu), plus a kids’ menu, full bar (with sake of course!) and happy hour specials. It all sounds delicious and so different from the usual Waldo bar food and restaurant spots.
Boru (it means bowl in Japanese) is open seven days a week at the corner of 75th and Washington– and accepts reservations through Open Table. Thank you for supporting our locally owned businesses!
