Spotlight: Scott Joseph Reviews Bem Bom
Bem Bōm’s Francisco “Chico” Mendonça is the latest chef to use his popular Portuguese food truck as a conveyance to a land-bound restaurant. He recently opened a wheel-less version of Bem Bōm in a freestanding building in Audubon Park.
The food truck business has proved a bumpy road for many who have tried and failed. Bem Bōm, however, has enjoyed a healthy popularity since 2012.
The new restaurant is attractively casual. There is an ample patio out front with a bar that looks into the small dining room. A tiled wall lends a Portuguese flair while woods, including a wall of end caps from wine cases, give a rustic note.
