Bamboo Café combines Vietnamese cuisine and stylish décor together to create a tranquil escape to a faraway land for Simi Valley locals. Hidden behind a façade of bamboo trunks awaits a healthy approach to Vietnamese classics. Starter favorites include standard Spring Rolls, and the Beef or Chicken Salad. Pho lovers have their choice of meats, but the pride of the restaurant is the Bamboo Café Noodle Soup, featuring Filet Mignon, Shrimp, and Beef in a tasty broth with Rice Noodles.Plastered around the restaurant are photos of Pho enthusiasts who conquered the “Pho Real” challenge by finishing a hefty bowl of soup under an hour.If the thought of Pho does not make the mouth salivate, heartier eaters can dive into the Rice or Vermicelli dishes with a mixture of vegetables and meat served hot or cold. Not all of Bamboo Café caters to the carnivores; vegetarians have their own spot on the menu, complete with tofu or vegetable alternatives.For a healthful alternative to other ethnic cooking, head to Bamboo Café for a real treat.
