What a beautiful sunny day it was in Portland yesterday. Just gorgeous like spring. Daffodils are blooming, the scent of Daphne...just wonderful. Alena goes to school five mornings a week. There is an additional playground for "after school" play and we usually hang out there for awhile before going home. Yesterday the girls played for almost an hour. We then had to go to the toy store to get entertainment for the plane ride next week. The toy store is right on Hawthorne in SE PDX on our way down I saw that there is a new restaurant. "The Rice Junkies". Its a small "fast foody" type of restaurant. The doors were open, tables on the sidewalk...oh, yes we also had to go out for lunch!!!
Great little place. They serve bentos, chicken, tofu, veggies, etc. really, really yummy and of course SAFE :))) You can choose between white or brown rice, the veggies are nice and crisp, the chicken has just a touch of terriyaki sauce...very good. The three of us shared a bowl, it was great and everyone loved it. Oh, did I mention there are also chop sticks? This of course increased the dinning experience for Alena :). In addition to bento bowls, Rice Junkies also serve wraps. There are a couple of wraps/bowls that contain cheese/sour cream (I think the "Mexican" wrap), so of course always double check with them when you order.
So, if you have a chance, you are hungry, in SE PDX, give Rice Junkies a try. If you do, please let me know if you like it...
