Best Known For
Boo's Favorites ... Traditional Isan dishes such as the Papaya Salad Platter, Salmon Mok Bar, Wagyu Steak Crying Tiger, Duck Salad, Drunken Seafood Noodles, or a traditional Chicken Green Curry.
Bringing families together through food is the aim of Woolloongabba restaurant Boo’s Kitchen on Annerley Road. With a focus on Northern Thai and Isan cuisine, this bright and breezy restaurant has an abundance of natural light with a glass frontage, or dine alfresco under market umbrellas and soak up the sun. From breakfast to dinner, Boo’s extensive menu dishes up a collection of favourites from her family home, including an early-riser Asian omelette, with a splash of soy sauce and jasmine rice. Those dining later can delve into the likes of Boo’s signature Isan style salmon custard – steamed curried salmon with herbs – or perhaps lightly battered and deep fried soft shell crab in yellow curry. Not in the mood for Thai food? Try the club sandwich, or cheeseburger with chips and gravy.
A few words from Boo’s Kitchen
A little bit about myself. My given name is Bussakorn but with my families love of seafood the nicknamed me Boo which means Crab in Thai !! This of course extended to my little sister who was nicknamed Goong - Prawns in Thai. I still wonder whether it was just fun or their true love of seafood !! Well, my brother and I followed in my mum's footsteps with me starting this restaurant to share my love of food and my brother who is a professional chef,
I grew up in a little village called Puvieng in the North Eastern part of Thailand, called Isan with two brothers and a sister. My father was a rice farmer and my mum sold home made food from a kitchen set up in front of our house. I started very young preparing all the ingredients for my mum to cook before I left for school and when I came back in the afternoons. watching and helping my mum cook gave a me a solid foundation on the Isan, Laos and Thai flavours.
We sat as a family on a mat on the floor with a variety of dishes cooked by my mum, my brother and myself, picking at the sticky rice with our hands and savouring the food. Inevitably, we would be joined by our extended family or friends who were always welcome to share our meals. An Isan meal is all about the coming together of families sharing their food while combining the various flavours from the array of dishes that can be had with sticky rice, jasmine rice or noodles.
With summer coming close and my love of seafood, I have introduced a great fresh Thai Prawn Salad and a Barramundi Salad with fresh herbs and a lemongrass seasoning that is perfect for a summer afternoon or evening...
However, you should try my other favorites such as the Isan Duck Salad (Laab) that is made with premium tender duck and using a all time favorite recipe or indulge in a Papaya Salad Platter, a very original Isan dish that I grew up with or the Crying Tiger or Seua Rong Hai that I specifically have made with tender Wagyu steak...
