Excellent experience on the first visit

I love the variety of good variety of restaurants in the “Highlands” area of Denver along 32nd Avenue. There is an excellent selection of dining options, and “Boa” is one of the best.

As with most restaurants along this strip, Boa was transformed out of a former residence. As a result, it is small, but they do have a back patio, and they have found a way to make the seating comfortable.

The unique aspect of this restaurant is that they serve both Asian choices, (the East menu), and Western, Mexican-style food, (the West menu), served up by two, accomplished chefs. Their menu choices are familiar favorites, but with the individual flair, and accent each chef adds from personal experience. There are many vegetarian options, (many of the East menu items can be made with tofu), as well as indulgent specialties all over this expansive menu.

Since almost everyone likes either Mexican, or Chinese, it’s a good bet that every member in your party will find something delicious to make them happy.

Boa is closed Mondays, but open Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30 p.m., to 9:00 p.m, Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., with Sunday brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and it’s Happy Hour all day on Sunday. They accept all major credit cards, but only one form of credit per table. Add a gratuity of 18% to tables over six, (we had five at our table, and they added the 18% anyway), and 20% to tables of 10 or more.

These are the Enchiladas as I was served them with the two sides. - Blue Corn Enchilada at BOA

Blue Corn Enchilada

I liked the use of Blue Corn, and the two sides at dinner, but, for $10.95 at dinner, these were a bit small, and a bit flavorless for my tastes. They are a little bit better at lunch for two dollars less, but you only get one side.

If you have a healthy appetite, do not expect this dish to satisfy you. If, however, you like “mild” Mexican food, and have a small appetite, this dish might be perfect for you. If you want spicy Mexican, you’d do better going a few doors East to “Julia Blackbird’s.”

Fideo - side dish

Everyone knows fideo is just chopped up vermicelli, and it is popular as a side with many Southwester restaurants, buy this fideo was more watery than any I’ve had before, and not particularly flavorful. It comes as one of your choices with either you lunch or dinner selection from the “West” menu – not really worth the $2.50 when purchased separately.

Calabacitas - side dish

I ordered this with my dinner because I felt pretty certain it was vegetarian. I was very pleased with what they brought. The corn and zucchini flavors blended together well, and made me wish I had chose this for both of my side dishes. It is a good, flavorful, southwestern choice. Try it!

Malaysian Rendang

Actually, my wife ordered this, but she let me sample hers, and I wish I had ordered the same. I’m not a big fan of “sweet” in my Asian meals, but the coconut is done well in this one – not too overpowering – and the sauce is tasty. Add the spicy peppers they throw in, and that you can have the dish made with tofu, and it’s a winner – a nice balance between sweet, savory, and spicy. Well done!

I also like that this restaurant used the “firm” tofu. I suppose some people like the “soft” tofu, but it is my personal opinion that most people who believe they do not like tofu believe so because the tofu they tried was of the “soft” variety. Firm tofu has a better texture that holds its shape, and absorbs surrounding flavors more readily. If you think you don’t like tofu, try this dish made with tofu, and you just may change your mind.
