Booyah in LA

In Northeastern WI and other Belgian communities, there is a soup called Booyah, it's a hearty chicken soup. Is there any places in LA that makes it?

  1. Not surprised to see that there are no responses so far. Some of the locals hide our midwestern heritage :-). My cousins in Wisconsin and Illinois had barely heard of it and could not dig up any old family recipes. But I digress....
    IIRC there was a Belgian restaurant in Pasadena but it closed. At any rate booyah is the American name for a dish that might not even be served in a traditional Belgian/Walloon restaurant.
    This old post mentions Lucky Baldwins as having Belgian events from time to time. You might give them a call...

      Interesting...if it's made with buckwheat, is it called Booyahkasha? I agree that Lucky Baldwin's is probably the best place to try.
