Blue Koi in KC is awesome

Chef Gio Jul 5, 2007 03:55 PM

I just wanted to make my first post and let all the chowhounders know about a great place to eat in KC.

I have eaten at Blue Koi on 39th and Bell for the past six years or so and it has always been great. Scotty the owner is doing a great job and it shows with a newly opened location in southern Johnson county.

It is a basic noodle and dumpling menu with some good apps and a Hip/artsy atmosphere.
If you haven't been you should go right now.

      Everything I have ordered (I must have been through the entire menu by now) has been great. Make sure you ask for their "awesome sauce" it is a version of Thai sweet chili sauce that is "awesome" hence the name. I brought home take-out once and forgot the sauce, my wife sent me back for it, it is that good.

      what do you like to get???

      The dumplings are great. I like the pork but thats the only kind i've tried. Alot of people I know like ants on a tree. Is the duck any good? That is next on my list...

        Do you have an address for the Southern JOCO location?

          I believe it's in the Mission Farms development in Leawood, about 107th and Mission.

            Yep, right next to the 435 underpass. It's kind of an odd location, I think, because there's not much room for new commercial development.
