Bamboo Garden in Seattle, Washington

While we were in Seattle we stopped by Bamboo Garden at the recommendation of some of my vegan friends. Bamboo Garden is an all-vegan Chinese restaurant (except the fortune cookies, which have eggs).

We were there with the whole QuarterCirclePunch.net team (Ben’s business) so we ordered the crispy fried wontons, crispy fried spring rolls, and crispy fried pot stickers to split. I was a bit surprised by the wontons since they didn’t anything in them (I was expecting cream cheese or something?). They were just wonton wrappers folded in half and deep-fried. But the spring rolls and the pot stickers were good, so the appetizer overall was a success.

After our appetizers we split five different entrees between the six of us. I love going to dinner with that many people because I get to try all kinds of different dishes! So, here is what we got:

Sweet and Sour Pork
Braised Chicken and Mixed Vegetables in Satay Peanut Sauce
Crispy beef
Pan-Fried Rice Noodle with Chicken and Mixed Vegetables in Hot Spicy Szechwan Sauce
Stewed Shiitake and Oyster Mushroom with Potato and Carrot in Satay Peanut Sauce

ALL of which were good. Highlights were probably the sweet and sour pork, crispy beef, and Stewed Shiitake and Oyster Mushroom with Potato and Carrot in Satay Peanut Sauce.

In the end, I would give Bamboo Garden a 5/5. They do Chinese food well and they have a ton of options. The interior of the restaurant wasn’t my favorite (it felt a little sticky and cheap), but the food was great.
