The Happy Bamboo's specialties include the Double-Decker Bus?a vegan version of the classic formulation of two patties, cheese, and Thousand Island dressing on a sesame seed bun?as well as many gluten-free options such as veggie carnitas tacos and chocolate ganache pies, which are prepared in a special area to minimize the risk of cross-contamination.
