Bon Me Appetit #7: Spicy Peanut Dressing

A question as old as time, asked by many, the answer sought after and never found...until now.

We've had endless requests for this secret recipe and we're finally giving in. Read on to find out how to make our Spicy Peanut Dressing at home.


Here's what you need:

Ingredients (yields ~2 cups of dressing):

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons vinegar

  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1-2 teaspoons cayenne, to taste

  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 4 teaspoons of toasted sesame oil

  • about 1 cup water


  1. In a bowl, whisk the peanut butter, soy sauce, and vinegar to form a smooth paste

  2. Add in the red pepper flakes, garlic, cayenne, sugar, and sesame oil. Whisk until fully incorporated into the dressing

  3. Lastly, whisk in water to thin out dressing to your desired consistency. Use less water for a thicker dressing and more for a thinner one.

  4. Enjoy!

Menu Makeover at Chestnut Hill Square

We've given our Chestnut Hill Square restaurant a makeover! Or more specifically, a menu makeover. Take a look below at our two new #exclusive dishes available in Chestnut Hill Square.

Baby Kale Salad with Tea Poached Chicken and Red Quinoa ($10)

Tea Poached Chicken? Yeah, you read that right. To make our new salad, we start by brewing strong Lapsang tea, a type of smoke-dried Chinese tea. We then poach (a fancy word for boil) chicken thighs in the tea, imbuing it with a unique smoky flavor. The chicken is chilled and tops a salad of tender baby kale mixed with red quinoa, tomatoes, red onions, and roasted almonds. A light lemon vinaigrette ties it all together. 

Seasonal Roasted Veggie Bowl ($8)

We're also introducing a Seasonal Vegetable Rice Bowl! Our kitchen is roasting up the best flavors of every season and combining them for a hearty bowl of fresh and healthy ingredients. We place the roasted veggies with cherry tomatoes and mesclun greens atop our brown rice, and season it all with Chinese Soy Bean Sauce.

For the winter months our Veggie Bowl will include roasted squash, mushroom, and cabbage. On the other hand, our summer bowl contained roasted eggplant, zucchini, and corn. 

Make sure to stop by our Chestnut Hill Square location and try out one of our new dishes. If you think your meal is #instaworthy make sure to tag us and let us know!

Happy Eating!

Winter Specials

Warm Up With Us

As much as we'd like to pretend that it's not, winter is well on it's way, and we're getting a head start. We've got a lot of warm and delicious winter specials that we're rolling out; some old and some new. Keep reading to find out what we have cooking, and where you'll be able to get it.

Chicken Pho (or Vietnamese Noodle Soup)

Our restaurant at One Kendall Square will be serving Chicken Pho Noodle Soup all winter. Phở Ga is a traditional Vietnamese noodle soup which features a light housemade chicken and ginger broth with poached chicken, and notes of lime and pepper. Don't miss out on this traditional masterpiece. ($9)

Winter Rice Noodle Soup

Our Dewey Sq., Stuart St., Blossom St. trucks and Fort Point restaurant are serving a new Rice Noodle Soup this year. This soup features noodles similar to Phở Ga, but has richer, rotating broths every day. Topped with a boiled egg and Spice Rubbed Chicken, this soup will fill you up with comforting goodness. ($10)

Ramen Noodle Soup
Still going strong at all our restaurants, we have our Pork Ramen Noodle Soup. Our Ramen has a rich pork broth, a gooey soft boiled egg, flash roasted kale, and enoki mushrooms. You can slurp some of this down any time at our Chestnut Hill Sq. and Alewife restaurants, and our Fort Point and Kendall Sq. restaurants on nights and weekends. ($10)

In addition to our three different soups, we will also be bringing back some other fan favorites! Our Harvard truck will reintroduce our Hot Mulled Apple Cider, spiced with fresh ginger, cinnamon, and star anise, and some of our restaurants will bring back sides of Miso Soup.

Winter almost seems worth it when you've got Bon Me to keep you warm.

Happy eating, foodie fam!
