“Bambudda” Is On The Hunt For An Experienced Full-Time Cook


The GOODS from Bambudda

Vancouver, BC | Bambudda restaurant (99 Powell) is looking for a dedicated full-time cook for evening prep and service. We offer Pacific Northwest interpretations of Chinese cuisine and craft cocktails to match. We are located on the edge of Gastown, near the heart of the most competitive bar and restaurant scene in the city.

The ideal candidate is a highly driven cook with a couple years’ experience in the culinary industry in a variety of cold and hot stations, a background or a strong desire to learn more about Chinese cooking techniques, and an eye for detail and precision. Although we deal extensively with Chinese ingredients and techniques it is still a very classically European kitchen in terms of service and execution.

About Bambudda

Bambudda has been a dream of mine ever since early adulthood. I grew up in Strathcona in the 70’s (five blocks from Bambudda), and I’m still living in the same neighborhood. Chinatown and Gastown were a big part of my childhood. I still remember $1.49 Tuesdays at Woodward’s, the original Save On Meats, and Golden Harvest Chinese Theatre at Main & Hastings, where my Mom used to take me for movies.

The cuisine at Bambudda combines elements of the food I grew up eating (either Mom’s cooking or restaurants in 1970’s-1980’s Chinatown) with modern French influences and interpretations in a contemporary setting. Bambudda has a private room for up to 20 people, a corner patio and bar seating with sliding doors that open up in the summer. The menu includes family-style share plates paired with an innovative, Asian-inspired cocktail list.

Chef Curtis Luk uses local, seasonal, sustainable and msg free ingredients to create unique and imaginative dishes. Our menu and cocktail list brings freshness and innovation to you every season of the year. – Ray Loy, Owner/GM
