Bamboo Restaurant is a local favorite in Hawi on the north side of the big island of Hawaii. Â The atmosphere at Bamboo Restaurant is an interesting combination of Jimmy Buffett meets your Grandma. Â Fun and relaxing coolness with quilts and do-it-yourself art for sale. Â Now that the atmosphere has you scared, it’s time to recommend the burger as an island favorite…introducing the Bamboo Burger.
The Bamboo burger was a delicious Hawaii’s own beef patty cooked to perfection (I went with medium-well) topped with your choice of cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles and wasabi mayo. Â The bun was lightly toasted and the beef was superbly fresh and delicious. Â It was just the right size and nearly melted in my mouth. Â The wasabi mayo made me scared at first but it’s a nice flavor and not overwhelming at all. Â The Bamboo burger comes with pineapple coleslaw that hits the spot and waffle fries. Â The waffle fries were a nice touch and the meal as a whole was fantastic. Â In fact, this is a recommended burger and worth the drive to Hawi.
The service at Bamboo Restaurant was pleasant and exactly what you’d expect at a Jimmy Buffett meets your Grandma type restaurant:). Â The burger was delicious, the waffle fries a wonderful surprise and the coleslaw was uniquely flavorful. Â I can easily recommend the Bamboo Burger to anyone and know you’ll enjoy it.
