Tea Time was looking for a quick dinner on Polk Street before going to hear Roz Chast speak. We decided on Bamboo because in addition to the fast service, the food is excellent. They are now serving Japanese dishes in addition to their original Chinese cuisine, but we both decided on Chinese.
|Simple but elegant place settings|
The condiments included a giant bottle of "Rooster Sauce." Tea Time is not fond of blisteringly hot food, but those who like it will be happy at Bamboo.
Our tea was served in this elegant teapot.
J.K., who eats a lot of salad at home, chose Fresh Garden with Prawns. There are a lot of prawns hiding among those tender, fresh mixed vegetables.
This was more food than we could eat, so we packed up our leftovers and got to the Nourse Theater in plenty of time to find our seats and get settled before Ms. Chast started her presentation.
