China Bamboo launches new house-made noodle menu

Get 30% off their food before December 23.

East Tucson Chinese restaurant China Bamboo announced the launch of a Chinese noodle dish menu.

While the restaurant launched a Sichuan menu back in February, the Sichuan chef moved to Los Angeles and the Sichuan menu is now gone. However, the restaurant recruited a noodle chef with experience from Fatman Kitchen.

We swung by to taste a few of the new noodle dishes. Here’s the scoop.

Oil Spill Noodle ($10.99) – these hand-pulled wide noodles are topped with garlicky chili oil, bok choy, broccoli, carrots, bean sprouts, scallions. We enjoy broccoli and carrots, but not with these other flavors; ask for this dish without broccoli and carrots. Regardless, this is still our favorite dish on the menu.

Beef Noodle Soup ($10.99) –  house-made long, thin noodles swim in a numbing spicy bone broth with bok choy, cilantro, and scallions.

Lamb Noodle Soup ($11.99) –  house-made thin noodles and bone broth are topped with chili oil, lamb slices, pickled Chinese greens, wood ear fungus, cilantro, and scallions. Not as flavorful as the beef soup, but more nuanced and earthy.
