Bamboo Garden

After seeing The Moondoggies and The Fruit Bats on Friday night we headed over to the Bamboo Garden Vegetarian Restaurant in lower Queen Anne for some dinner. The menu at this restaurant is enormous! It is so hard to pick something to eat because everything on the menu sounds incredible. We finally narrowed it down to two entrees after some very difficult decision making and a game of rock, paper, scissors.

The Stewed Shiitake and Oyster Mushroom with Potato and Carrot and Satay Peanut Sauce. This hearty stew-like dish was so rich and savory. The oyster mushrooms had an amazing consistency that I feel is usually lost when they are cooked for too long so I don't know how they were able to stew them and keep a pillowy texture. It was served with beautiful fluffy brown rice.

The "Chicken" Chow Mein (Low Mein). Just like the hole in the wall Chinese restaurant classic without the heavy grease and gut bomb aftermath. This dish was so light and filled with different veggies and crisp noodles.

The servings were pretty big. We had about half of each dish left to take home by the time we were full. And today, those leftovers were delicious too. I liked my fortune... time to go gather and communicate.
