We're in Buenos Aires for 3 weeks (after 2.5 months in South America). For a change of pace from the "bife de chorizo" and pizzas and pastas, Green Bamboo seemed promising. Nice atmosphere, attentive English speaking staff, but definitely not Vietnamese food as I am used to having. I did set my expectations low going in because I know tastes can differ in other countries, but I accidentally got my hopes up high when I saw they had my favorite Bun Cha on the menu. The pork was tender, flavorful, and cooked well, but I'm still not certain I got what I ordered. Wheat noodles instead of rice noodles, some kind of sauce but not nuac cham, the pickled veggies were more like japanese cucumber vinegar salad, and no spices in anything. However, our appetizer of grilled chicken on sugar cane skewers was excellent. As others have commented, our simple meal with 2 glasses of wine came to US$85, which is one of the more expensive meals we've had in Argentina. And, although I enjoyed the change in flavors, it wasn't worth the $ and what I was expecting. Sorry. However, great place for a date night!
