Tasty, quick and something for everyone on the menu. That’s what Bamboo Express at Blundell Centre has been serving up for more than 30 years.
Tucked in between Kin’s Farm Market and Cob’s Bread, the small restaurant maintains a mighty selection of more than 200 dishes, ranging from classic favourites customers have been ordering for years to meals that cater to the tastes of newcomers to the community from mainland China and other parts of Asia who want a reminder of their former home.
That new population has created demand for dishes such as Singapore Chow mein, rice noodles with beef, Cantonese sweet and sour pork, as well as hot pot dishes with eggplant, and fried tofu.
There are also Western dishes for those looking for a change of pace.
So, depending on what you want - an old favourite, or a new dish you’d like to try - Bamboo Express is more than likely able to satisfy, from Chinese (Cantonese style) to Western fare, and something in between.
But don’t forget, there are always daily specials written up on their display boards. And if you don’t see what you want on the menu, there’s a chance that if you have a word with the management, they may just be able to cook up what you want. It may even become part of the menu if there’s enough demand.
After all, paying attention to what customers crave has been part of the success Bamboo Expresshas enjoyed over the decades. So, it’s no wonder that one of the hallmarks of the business is the vast number of repeat customers, many of whom the owners know and greet by name.
But treating customers right doesn’t end with the good food - value gets attention, too, with free delivery, seven days a week, for orders of more than $30. Those opting for take-out save 10 per cent off their minimum total of $25. Best of all, the orders are usually ready in 10 to 15 minutes, with every meal made fresh.
