Kitty & Eva, Owners of Bamboo Asian House

Surely, Kitty and Eva are as busy as two co-owners can be at the beginning of lunchtime, in a town where their Asian menu has a strong word-of-mouth following, which brings along with it, repeat customers happy to eat at Bamboo several times a week. Sunny and with a relaxed demeanor, the two ladies work while they talk, but aren’t too busy to hug a longtime customer.

“All we do is from our hearts,” Kitty says, smiling. “We don’t just have a business, and it’s not just customers, we make friends.”
