The restaurant mix at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino gets broader with the debut of The Bol, a hybrid Vietnamese-Chinese eatery that takes over a former retail shop at the entertainment complex’s entrance.
With the Vietnamese side of the restaurant presided over by chef Jacky Truong and the Chinese side by chef Albert Yip, The Bol offers a variety of dishes from both culinary cultures. Among the offerings: Vietnamese spring and summer rolls, pho and Hue-style rice noodles with beer, plus ma po tofu, salt and pepper shrimp, and steamed clams with black bean sauce.
As for the restaurant proper, it incorporates the energy principles of feng shui, as well as lots of red accents for good luck (a fairly important concept in a casino). There’s also a six-person family-style table and a trio of high-def TVs showing Asian landscapes and marketplaces and footage of the chefs doing their thing in the kitchen.
The Bol is open for lunch and dinner daily. Phone is 954/585-5104.
