Christopher's Gourmet Grill
This is a pseudo-review of Christopher's Gourmet Grill, mostly because I only had take-out from the place and I wasn't the one picking it up. Now that I've gotten the logistics out of the way...( Read more...Collapse ) Current Mood: sleepy

Thanksgiving buffet options?
Can anyone suggest some options in town for a Thanksgiving buffet? In the past we've done Salty's, but it's gotten a bit pricey for what you get so we'd like to explore other options, too. We're not looking for swanky, just nice and appropriate for out of town guests. Figure an upper limit of $50/person (excluding drinks).

Any suggestions for deeply discounted birthday meals (i.e., buy one entree - get one free, or 50% off check)? I'm aiming higher than a free knob of ice cream.
Hoping for Asian, Middle Eastern, and/or fancy, but if you know of Latin/Caribbean, Indian, or other kinds of restaurants offering deals, please post! Not so much into Mexican or standard American fare like hamburgers and chicken strips, though.

Ever eat meat that was seasoned in such a way, you can still "taste" it several hours later? In a good way.
I've been getting lunch at La Superior on 2727 N Lombard. I think there was a fairly popular taco joint here previously too.
Tacos are $1.15 and burritos are $3.99. And they have a lot of combo plates priced differently.
I love this joint. It's dingy inside but I got a feeling it's pretty darn authentic. The food tastes amazing without needing to be smothered in cheese or sour cream.

Salty's for brunch
I had a really nice celebratory brunch at Salty’s On the Columbia the other weekend.
From what I’ve gathered, people either seem to really like Salty’s or find it mediocre. I’m not sure if the differing opinions vary based on dinner versus brunch buffet, but I have no complaints. ( Read more...Collapse ) Current Mood: calm

We are going to be in Portland for a few days and have never been. We will need dinner Saturday, three meals Sunday and Monday, and a nice farewell breakfast. We are staying near the 700 Block of Alderwood and will be relying primarily on walking. Who is doing the best what locally that we would be fools to miss?
Thank you very from for you assistance!

Website says they're closed for lunch, due to construction. Is this true for Saturday noons too?

So it's my birthday this Friday and I'm looking for some food advice.
Usually I go out to lunch by myself at some place that offers free birthday lunches. I used to go to Todai but they stopped doing it--is it true they've started again? Where else is good that's near the Max line that would have that?
And also I'm looking for something new for dinner with my parents and sister (and my friend and my sister's boyfriend). We have a wide palate, but since we're looking for something new, that rules out American, Thai, Italian, Japanese, Indian, Middle Eastern, and Chinese. Also I don't much like seafood of any sort. So what's out there in the 20$ or less price range?

I had dinner at Rocket last night. It was really fun but the food was kinda blaaaaaah. I posted a lengthy review on my blog, here: http://bread-and-honey.blogspot.com/2008/05/rocket-review.html
Also, while eavesdropping, we noticed the table next to us was intentionally leaving a lousy tip, not because the service was poor, but because it wasn't NOTABLY OUTSTANDING, and that if you tip waitstaff TOO WELL, they'll just come to EXPECT IT, so you have to keep them ON THEIR TOES by leaving crappy tips once in awhile. What the hell!? That's so stupid. We left a really big tip to counter-balance their efforts. Screw you, guys!

Need a lunch spot recommendation
So, taking a cute girl out tomorrow.
1. Preferably in NW PDX
2. Has to be open early afternoon, on a Saturday.
3. UBER TRENDY and well thought out decor.
4. Cuisine style doesn't matter.
FYI, for that dinner place I was previously asking for, another Damnedportlander suggested Aquariva, and I ended up there.

local champagne/sparkling wine
any recommendations on local champagne or sparkling wine? I'm looking to pick up something and carefully bring it to a friend to NYC via plane next week. I know of local sparkling cider, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Need a restaurant recommendation
1. Must have outdoor seating.
2. Must be Thai, Mexican, Italian, seafood, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Chinese, or German.
(planning a date, and that's what she says she likes)
3. Must be within 10 miles of city center.
4. Would prefer a little more upper scale than casual.

has anyone seen the black tapioca pearls, boba, used for bubble tea, for sale around pdx?
I've checked fubonn and anzun to date, and unless I'm looking entirely in the wrong places, I haven't seen anything.
If I have to pay for another $4 bubble tea when I can make it at home... : )

Updated- There's a sign up that May 3 is their last day of business. The owner is packing it up and moving back to Philly. Be sure not to miss these while you still have the chance- They actually have tables and new menu items now since this original post (Nov. 2006)( Read more...Collapse )
