Caribbean restaurant Ti Bamboo is now open in St. Petersburg

You shouldn’t have any problem finding the place, though. It’s the building with the Bob Marley mural painted on the outside.

St. Pete’s Ti Bamboo Caribbean Restaurant and Lounge quietly opened its doors back in June at 9291 Dr. MLK Jr. St. N near DMG Caffe and The Omega Club.

You shouldn’t have any problem finding the place, though. It’s the building with the Bob Marley mural painted on the outside, and it’s lined with red, yellow and green picnic tables.

Ti Bamboo offers kid-safe eats like chicken tenders and grilled cheese, but you can also find dishes like oxtail and beans (braised oxtails and beans served alongside rice, peas and vegetables) and “escoveitched whole fish,” a whole snapper dredged in flour and deep fried, served with escovitch sauce (Jamaican pickle sauce), rice and peas, callaloo and fried plantains.

The menu also has a sando selection, salads and a soup of the day (tuna wrap and bamboo chop salad, anyone?)

You can visit the Caribbean joint any day of the week from 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and you can keep up with all the latest via Facebook and Instagram (@tibamboo).
