Bambu

I have a terrible habit of only staying within my bubble when dining out. That bubble thankfully hits all areas of downtown – Westboro, Glebe, Sunnyside, Market, Centretown. It's not until I'm forced to think outside that box that I actually do, and it usually scares me. But why I'm not sure, because I often find gems that would otherwise go unnoticed. One of those is Bambu.

I recently changed jobs, which brought me to the Prince of Wales/Hunt Club end of the city. So in the few months I've been here, I've been to Bambu probably a dozen times, at least. And every single time has been consistently fresh and delicious, even on the busiest of days. From their dim sum and bento boxes, to their pad thai, sushi and lunch specials, all now hold a very special place in my heart. And no, I'm not bored of coming here yet. And I doubt I ever will be. I've now introduced the place to so many people. It's my go-to lunch meeting spot.

Today I had lunch with a former colleague. As we did some business talk, we also chowed down on a bunch of appetizers. Hunan dumplings, mango rice paper rolls with peanut sauce, egg rolls, and crispy, spicy salmon rolls. As usual, all mouthwatering.

The space is beautiful and bright, service always great and prices very reasonable.

Thanks for lunch Scott!

I have never been to Bambu, but when reading its menu online it seems like it might have vegan potential.
