Last night, I stopped by Bamboo Sushi
, after shopping at Xera Retail
and before heading over to Portland Nursery
, because a girl needs sustenance while plant shopping. I have a sushi habit. I adore the sushi as Bamboo Sushi and their happy hour is an affordable feast. Plus, their service is excellent. Bamboo Sushi focuses on fresh sustainable seafood, so I feel guilt free as I savor my meal.
| hand roll ($2)|
The hand rolls are carefully prepared with layers of flavor. Affordable art.
The complimentary edamame are perfectly prepared and topped with a sprinkle of coarse salt. I'm not usually a big fan of edamame but I enjoy these.
| California Roll ($4)|
|char grilled shishito peppers with miso butter and bacon ($4!)|
I tried the Char Grilled Shishito peppers for the first time and the dish wowed me. The peppers tasted smokey and sweet with just a hint of heat and the miso butter and bacon celebrated umami. My Pirate would love it.
|They pickle their own ginger. It's delicious.|
And learning their recipe for making pickled ginger would make my life complete. But, at least I can take the extra home with me.
I enjoyed my happy hour dinner and then continued on towards Portland Nursery with their gift card burning a hole in my pocket. I recommend stopping by Bamboo Sushi even if you don't like sushi because their other dishes are delicious too. What is your favorite sushi restaurant?
