Boke Bowl West – 1200 NW 18th – Portland, OR
Once a pop-up, known for their weekly Korean fried chicken night and ramen, Boke Bowl has a newer Nob Hill expansion which features “Cantonese style tapas” pushed table side on a cart, a.k.a, Dim Sum. It’s Portland style, and it’s tasty. I recently got the chance to sample a few of their new dishes on the Westside location with a few other local Portland bloggers.
Our brunch dishes were varied, from pork belly buns and dumplings to chicken wings and sui mai. There were stand outs, like the black bean spare ribs and the pea tips with garlic and fermented black beans. Of course, you can always get their ramen anytime, but the sides to me were the stars. A menu seasonally in flux, I’d definitely stop by again for a tasty lunch or Bloody Mary cocktail (topped off with a giant piece of fried chicken as garnish!).
Here’s what you can expect to see and eat at this Westside location.
* Full disclosure, this was a hosted brunch. All opinions are my own and are in no way influenced by all the tasty cocktails. Thanks to Little Green Pickle for the invite!!
