Oh Boy, Bok Choy!
Amanda and John Scott have wanted to add Vietnamese cuisine to their hospitality portfolio for 24 years. The couple, who own Kedron’s hugely popular cafe Farm House and neighbouring gelateria Miss Sophia’s finally got the chance to add the cuisine to their repertoire with Oh Boy, Bok Choy! – a Southeast-Asian restaurant concept, which opened on Stafford Road in June 2021. With the idea sitting so close to their hearts, Amanda and John have ensured all of the right pieces were in place before committing to the project. They’ve assembled a brigade of chefs that boast family ties to Vietnamese, Thai, Malaysian and Chinese cuisines, with many bringing third-generation recipes to the fore for the restaurant’s melting-pot offering. The menu features an assortment of crowd-pleasing and vegetable-heavy dishes that emphasise freshness and inclusivity. Half of the menu is vegan friendly, with diners free to build upon these plant-based foundations with the likes of crispy duck and pork belly. Oh Boy, Bok Choy’s beverage list features local craft beers and Queensland wine, and also gives considerable attention to non-alcoholic drinks – think plenty of delectable mocktails!
