Bamboo Bean has been operating since March 2018 by Mark So. This shop has been managed well by Mark and shop has been converted in the first year from a hippy ambiance to a cosy and versatile spot for a family lunches and casual date night.
Neighborhood loved to hang out in this case which is strategically located on 301 Waverley Road, Malvern East.
As you might know, we’re in the middle of #Covid19 crisis and many shops are struggling cause the new rules and regulations were applied almost a month now that all cafes / restaurants can only do a take away only in order to suppress the spread of this virus.
Definitely, It’s a massive hit for those who run business in food and beverages.
During this uncertain times, Bamboo Bean is still opening their door for a takeaway shop offering coffee and food. Hope this crisis will be over soon so that foodie lovers would be able to say hello in person to this humble man ‘Mark So’ and enjoy the atmosphere of his cafe situated in leafy Malvern East.
We came there on weekend, lots of take away order in placed and many people were queuing to grab take away coffee. I am sure that neighborhood can’t wait to get this cafe operating as per normal and enjoying the atmosphere.

- Bamboo C.B.
Grass fed beef patty, smoked cheddar, smokey relish, pickles, mustard mayo.
Cheese burger is the most common burger where you can get in any burger shop.
It’s kind of a benchmark dish, if they can’t execute this well, don’t expect that other burger dishes are nice.
We had our Bamboo C.B classic cheese burger, it was just amazing and everything was perfectly executed well.
- Hickory Joe
Slow cooked beef, brisket, crunchy slaw, Provolone cheese, homemade hickory BBQ sauce, garlic aioly & pickles.
The slow cooked beef was the main star from this burger. The beef was smooth and soft.
If you eat by itself, the taste was slightly strong.
However, if you eat the burger as a whole, you’ll find lot of things going on; The sweet, sour and savory blended together perfectly.
The bun was served fresh and soft.
We totally understand, the burger wasn’t warm when we tasted it at home.
It was still delicious and we can’t imagine how delicious it is when you’re having the burger there after this crisis over.
All Day Breakfast
- Acai Breakfast Bowl
Acai smoothie topped with granola, berries, dragon fruit, coconut & almond flakes, seasonal fruit & raspberry infused yogurt.
The texture of Acai bowl was very smooth and on top of the Acai you’ll find fresh seasonal fruits.At the time of our order, we’ve got bananas, strawberries and blueberries.
Acai bowl is an absolute perfect breakfast dish to start your day and replenish your energy.
It’s absolutely recommended dish for your to order.
The overall taste was balance and spot on.
Something To Share
- Truffle Parmesan French Fries
The french fries were perfectly deep fried, it wasn’t greasy.
It was also seasoned well and had balance taste. The truffle parmesan cheese was generously served.
In most place where they couldn’t execute well when you do a take away, you’ll get disappointed with the french fries. We’re surprised to find out that their French Fries were still crispy, crunchy and most importantly they are not oily.
Everything was just fabulous and the team executed well all dishes we order.
