Re: “Who Tells the Truth to a Cook?

I love it when the friends of a reviewed business jump into the comments.

Re: “Sen Yai's Disruptive Thai

We've been twice, and will keep going. Great food, great cocktails, great service. You definitely shell out for it, particularly if you get more than one $9 tamarind sour.

Re: “Who Tells the Truth to a Cook?

This review is 100% correct. Yara is achingly average, and overpriced for average.

Re: “Who Tells the Truth to a Cook?

I have had the pleasure of dining at Yara several times in the past months since its opening and i have to disagree, it was excellent. Sure, there are a few kinks that obviously need to be worked out (the long wait times, as you said), but cant say that it was in any way bad. I have multiple friends that SWEAR by this place, and have had overwhelmingly positive experiences. I think you might be wrong this time Chris....

3 of the Burger Week restaurants seem to be unprepared for the onslaught of business and cannot deal. The burger at Pause was well executed and very tasty but - a 45 minute wait for a burger at lunchtime gives you no time to enjoy it.

Re: “Crafting the Future of Cider

The Hopricot is fantastic!! And you must try the Newtown Pippin. I credit 1856 for introducing me to the Reverend.

Re: “Supper in Siberia

Chris you eat this stuff 6 or 7 days a week? (you must be El Lardass Supremo) Anyway this is the finest restaurant anybody has created in the pacific northwest in decades. Why are you damning it with faint praise?

Also you qwerty suspiciously similiar to this chris onstad:…

Is he your dad or something?

Re: “Unfinished Picture

We were the only customers in the place as well. I thought the entire experience was disappointing. It was like being at a dead party where the caterers had nothing to do since the cook and bartender were just standing around. The food, well, I won't be back. It lacked on so many different levels. They're doing too much wrong. Bring in a chef that knows how to cook a right temperature on a burger. I had 2 on 2 different occasions and both times it was overcooked from medium rare to well. How does that happen. It has potential, but not with who'd running it.

Re: “Unfinished Picture

Music was crap but they had dollar Miller's. Plus we were THE only customers in the place and weren't very hungry, so I obviously can't personally comment on the cuisine.

I miss the Thai joint it replaced.

EDIT - Just notice the pic was taken in the exact same place I was sitting. Trippy.

Re: “He Favors His Father

It is extremely attractive in order to purchase the actual comfort and ease meals in a location exactly where it is from it's apotheosis, however the accomplishment associated with Tasty's selections is actually how the distinctive as well as not familiar dishes—hard to select when confronted with an ideal hamburger or even steak—reward your own risk therefore completely.

Re: “He Favors His Father

I love Tasty and Alder. The Iberico Pork skirt steak is incredible

Re: “He Favors His Father

Chris, agreed with Tasty but so sad the Merc had nothing on National Martini Day with so many mixologists in town.

Re: “Four Hits from Hell and Beyond

That German bakery is awesome. Interesting to note that its name is 'German Bakery.'

Out in Scappoose, there's a dockside/floating restaurant/bar called Mark's On The Channel. They went away for a while, and came back. They used to make the best damn fejoada, which I see is no longer on the menu. I'm goin' there this Friday night, see if they redeem themselves otherwise.

Re: “Comfort Oriented

I'm concerned this place is going to be the next Lardo, with hordes of lumpy suburbanites who can't park safely and walk right into the street on grease-filled highs. *Splat*
