The phrase BYOB is a little bit different at Bolay. At Bolay, you can build your own “bol” with fresh ingredients and bold flavors. Dont’t worry, build your own bols are not the only thing at Bolay, you can get a chef bol with already created flavors to enjoy. The baja lemon chicken bol is a fan favorite on the menu. If you didn’t know already, Bolay just opened up a new location in St. Petersburg
