Leslie Brenner Recommends

As far as I’m concerned, Bambu isn’t just the best Thai restaurant in North Texas, it’s one of the best restaurants in North Texas, period. Definitely order the Isan dishes, many of which appear on the specials blackboard. If you’re new to Bambu, ask owner Shelly Nan for help ordering.

One of the very best restaurants in D-FW, Bambu spotlights the cooking of Isan, the northeastern region of Thailand. The restaurant is extremely vegetarian- and vegan-friendly. Owner Shelly Nan delights not just in recommending vegetarian dishes, but also in tweaking others to make them vegetarian, which often simply means leaving out the nam pla (fish sauce). No problem for chef Bounmee Nanthaphak, Nan’s mom: Her spectacular Isan bamboo-shoot salad, bright with lime juice, mint, cilantro, scallion, red onion and Thai chile pepper and crunchy with toasted rice, doesn’t suffer for the omission. Green papaya salad is a happy starter easily made vegetarian, too. Then move on to a jungle curry with soft pillows of tofu, or pad suki — stir-fried glass noodles with baby bok choy and pickled garlic. For dessert, don’t miss the black rice with coconut.

The 18-month-old restaurant recently got its liquor license, and Nan’s reasonably priced wine list offers choices that work well with the food.Leslie Brenner/Guide
