What I ATE: Saturday March 26th


Lunch: Fujin
3549 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 231-3753

This place has been a Hawthorne landmark for over 20 years. really fresh really flavorful, quality ingredients and fast! Cheaplunch specials and the whiteboard daily specials are amazing. The owner always comes out and thanks you for coming in and the food is the kind of awesome that makes you crave Fujin at all hours of the day. I try to send as many people as I can to Fujin, because I want them to be around for another 20 years!

What I Ordered: Salt & Pepper Calamari
Fried Calamari topped with sauteed onions and fried garlic in a spicy sauce served over rice. Hot and Sour soup that warmed me right up even though it was pouring rain outside. Little bit of heaven on Hawthorne.

Dinner: Hawthorne Hophouse

4111 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 477-9619

Another fine Portland Public House with great beer on tap. Decent happy hour menu and killer food! They are pretty ballsy not putting out salt or pepper on their tables, but they have the flavors to back it up. Great upscale pub food and fresh local ingredients. Must say the crowd is a little pretentious, but who cares when the food and beer is good.

What I had: Mediterranean Plate and the Hopworks Ham and Cheese with Red Dragon Mustard Cheddar and thick juicy ham on a ciabatta bun with handcut fries. So good!
