Not your run of the mill Vietnamese cuisine

Well, for those of you who are friends of mine on Facebook, you must know by now that the Blu Bambu is one of my favorite Vietnamese food finds in Boca. Tucked away in Royal Palm Place, this little restaurant may be little in size, but not in flavor! The Owner/Chef Tien Tran sure knows how to please my palate! I am convinced they add a pinch of love into every dish.

Today I tried one of their daily specials: Grilled Chicken breast with a creamy pesto sauce. I didn't have the time to eat it there, so I asked them if they could prepare it to go for me. When I arrived to pick it up, I was greeted with a warm welcome (as usual) and my food was ready for me. (Which is always a plus in my book).

I placed my nicely packaged lunch on the seat next to me and as I made my way back to the office the wonderful aroma that escaped from the bag made my stomach growl and my foot heavier on the pedal. So finally, (what seemed like forever, but in fact was just a quick 2 minute drive) I made it back to my office and opened my bag to reveal my nicely compartmentalized meal. The chicken breast, still nice and warm, was pounded thin, the way I like it and cooked to perfection. The creamy pesto was fantastic. This combination is what intrigued me to call in my order today. I am familiar with the traditional basil pesto, but had never even heard of the creamy kind. I was given a side of rice and steamed veggies as well, which complimented the chicken very nicely.

So, if you still haven't tried Blu Bambu, I hope you now are inspired to do so. As I mentioned, they're tucked inside Royal Palm Place and may be a little hard to find at first, but persevere until you do. It is one of those treasures you'll be glad you discovered.

Blu Bambu is located at: 45B Royal Palm Place 561-393-0096

Until we eat again...
I send you delicious wishes, XO
