Thai Bamboo 1/4/05

It's time to explain a little about me. I'm female, 25 and I live in Spokane, Washington. Spokane is located on the far eastern border of Washington, just a few miles from the Idaho border. Unlike Seattle, Spokane is very dry and very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer. It's the kind of town that looks like there's not much going on, until you look beneath the surface. Or more appropriately for this blog, go into restaurants that look like dives, just to discover that they're really fabulous once you get in there. I've lived in Spokane for four and a half years now and it wasn't until last summer that my husband and I discovered Thai Bamboo. Thai Bamboo is located on North Division street, the main north-south thoroughfare through the city, just north of the mall. From the outside it doesn't look like much but once inside we found that the staff is quick and curteous, with few exceptions, and the atmosphere is nice with little live bamboo plants on each table and other little knick knacks like buddhas and elephants. And the food is delicious.

Stephen and I were sick on tuesday so we decided to order takeout from Thai Bamboo. Stephen ordered the Mongolian Beef, I had the Drunken Noodles and we had the "Butterfly" appetizer. An order of steamed jasmine rice rounded off the order. The Mongolian Beef was delicious. It is prepared with a chili sauce and is glazed with some sort of sweet sauce. It is sweet, crunchy and perfect. The Drunken Noodles were very good also. The noodles were wide and perfectly done, then tossed with a chili sauce also. Very, very good. The "Butterfly" was also good. It consists of a deep fried wonton filled with crab meat and cream cheese and served with sweet and sour sauce. They were incredible, if a tad cold by the time we got them home. All very, very good. If you're ever in Spokane definitely check it out.
