Kells, Cutie T & I went on a girls weekend getaway to Portland Oregon🔗, earlier this year (pre-pandemic times). As it was Cutie’s first time, we wanted it to be extra special. We stayed at the ritzy Hotel Monaco🔗.
One evening we chose to dine at Bamboo Sushi🔗 (downtown location). They’ve got 3 locations in The PDX.
Kells has had Bamboo Sushi 🔗 before.
But, it was mine & Cutie T’s first time. Bonus: it was right around the corner from our hotel.
Garden of Eden roll – Micro crunch, tart, slight sweet,
Chasing the Dragon roll – tempura shrimp, tart at first, soft spicy flavour, chewy rice, elevated dynamite
Soft shell crab bao – soft tempura crunch salt, heaven
Friday the 13th -taste the sweet salt then slow spicy heat (delayed). Table fave.
Kimono -elevated cali roll, complicated, starts apple then sweet crab, chewy rice, salty goodness.
Ocean Farmer Roll-garlic butter with seared salmon, “delicious”, starts soft smoke then rice then fresh.
Itame Roll -Special, cilantro, light flavour, fresh, ideal for those starting to eat raw fish.
Parking: on the street or find a lot.
Pricing: it’s not cheap but it is cheery.
Ambience: Pimped-Up Casual.
Yes! Go stuff your gobs with this fabulous food!
(We do mean after the pandemic precautions have lifted. Also, bring a cigarette cuz you’ll need after you finish this sexy sushi.)
