I don't know what's more lovable at this bustling ramen restaurant, the tasty food or the delightful owners, but either way, it's a hit. Love the Brussels sprouts salad and the miso black cod ramen, and of course, the housemade twinkies. Go Thursday nights for the Korean Fried Chicken, aka Boke Bird.
Knock elbows with a smaller crowd by arriving before 6pm. Add slow-poached eggs, pork belly, or fried chicken. Don't forget a miso butterscotch Twinkie.
The sidewalk along Water Avenue is vacant because everyone and their foodie cousin are inside Boke, wrapping their chopsticks around tendrils of tasty ramen. Order before you seat yourself, or you'll be waiting for a while.
This a a true PDX eating experience. If in the mood for something different and great food, then this is the place to explore
Ah for pete sakes, how do you jump up and down raving about a place on a web site review??
Anyone who has read a write up on Boke knows the fried chicken scores crazy high points. I will agree- dont miss it!!!
The roasted brussel sprouts and cauliflower- oh my my my myyyyyyy. Never have I had the mix of flavors put together in this dish. SUPERB.
My normal order is a side of chicken and the roasted vegs. (plentyyy for two to share)
I brought a major foodie friend here for lunch a couple of weeks ago and BOKE did not let me down. We had a fabulous lunch causing my friend to wish he lived in Portland. Wanting to move for a resturant is a high grade!
This is the kind of attention to detail and gutsy cooking many a resturant should stretch out and try.
