Sissonville Edition: Bamboo Garden

Bamboo Garden
ANOTHER ONE for the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list. Bamboo Garden is located in Sissonville and has a sort of cult following. People love this place. So, I dragged Maggie out to Sissonville to check it out.

From the outside, it looks questionable. A little rundown and nondescript. Inside, it could use a nice deep cleaning. A bit dusty, and I'm pretty sure the mustard at our table had been there for at least 15 years.

Bamboo GardenI went with my typical benchmark dish - General Tso's Chicken - so as to measure up against all other American Chinese restaurants. And, also, I like it. Sorry not sorry.

Bamboo GardenNext up was the eggroll, which was pretty standard. Good crisp, decent filling.

Bamboo GardenAnd the main performance! The chicken was good quality - white pieces of chicken. Yes. I just wish the sauce had a bit more punch. It fell just a little flat. I say this because I've had a lot of general tsos, so I know the sauce can get pretty tangy. Here? Not as much.
