Hey Weight Loss Nation!


It’s Tuesday……and that means it’s a Tampa Bay Tuesday!

Today…..I’m doing a restaurant review!

I visited the Bamboozle Cafe in downtown Tampa.

I was with my friend Jason Hewitt, who hosts The History of Branding Podcast.

We had been out all day taking pictures and I was STARVING! Luckily, Jason says to me…..”Hey…..are you hungry?” I quickly reply, “I’m starving!”

Then Jason says, “What do you feel like?” I tell him….”I don’t care, as long as it’s healthy.”

So Jason says…..”Let’s have Pho.” I’m like…..”What the hell is Pho?” It’s Vietnamese soup.” I’m like is it healthy?” Yes! I’m like….ok…let’s go.

We head over to the Bamboozle Cafe which is located at 516 N. Tampa Avenue, Tampa, FL.

It was a beautiful day in Florida, so we ate outside at a cafe table.

Our waitress, her name is “Bee” just like a Bumble Bee, comes out and hands us a menu.

I look inside the menu and I have no idea what the hell any of the dishes on the menu is. I see chicken, pork, and beef on the menu, but the other ingredients…I have no idea.

Our waitress Bee comes out and Jason tells Bee this is the 1st time I’ve ever been to a Vietnamese restaurant and what would she recommended that I have to eat?

Without hesitation….Bee says….”Definitely the Pho Bo with Oxtail.”

I’m like what is Pho Bo? Bee tells me it’s a Vietnamese Beef Broth Soup with long, rice noodles, spices, bean sprouts, chilis and jalapeno peppers.

I’m like….”ok….I’ll go for it.”

The Pho Bo was actually very good! Hard to describe! It has an Earthy, savory, sweet at the same time kind of taste. Can’t put my finger on it.

The Pho Bo was fresh, the basil was on a sprig and the noodles were just made that afternoon.

The Pho Bo was very, very healthy! Very good!

I have to give Bamboozle Cafe a BIG 2 Weight Loss Nation Thumb’s Up!

Great job Bamboozle Cafe!

I am going to go back and order an entree and interview the owner for a future podcast.
