Nyonya isnt the only Asian standby making moves on Grand Street. As anticipated, the Ngo family has, just a block away, opened a new location of their popular Chinese-Vietnamese joint, Bo Ky. The grand opening is on Sunday, but the full menu is already being served for dine-in and takeout (no delivery). As with Nyonya, prices are up slightly from the old location, which will remain open, but the offerings are exactly the same.

So, why, after over three decades in Chinatown, have the three Ngo brothers opened a duplicate shop four blocks away? Well, they simply liked the location. (And theyre not the only ones: Across the street, someone has finally taken the old Grand Street Gourmet space and started renovation.) The room, which holds about 40 people, is bare-bones and spic-and-span. As of now, hours are from 10 a.m. till 8 p.m. The familiar menu of noodles and meat, butchered in-house, is below.
