503area has new update 18 hours ago 16 Delectable Dumpling Destinations in Portland and Beyond
Dough Zone Dumpling House. | Morgen Schuler/Eater Chinese, Georgian, Japanese, and more It’s hard to argue the comforting power of the humble dumpling. Nearly every culture has some version of a filled, unleavened parcel, whether it’s one of many regional Chinese styles, Japanese gyoza, Russian pelmeni, or Nepalese momos. With a sizable Eastern European population and a growing Asian American population, Portland’s dumpling game has gotten stronger than ever, with several global variations represented within city limits. While dumplings come in many shapes and sizes, nobody can truly define the boundaries of what is and is not considered a dumpling; it’s as futile as definitively deciding whether a hot dog is a sandwich. This map includes a plethora of different types, but does not delve into dumplings like tamales, empanadas, or ravioli; this map also sticks to filled dumplings, not solid ones that might appear in dishes like chicken and dumplings. For more dumpling options, feel free to explore our Chinese restaurant map. Note: Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.
503area has new update 20 hours ago This New Tigard Restaurant Specializes in Donburi
Bowls at Donburi Factory. | Donburi Factory Donburi Factory serves various iterations of the iconic Japanese dish, topped with everything from unagi to thinly shaved beef For the better part of a decade, if not longer, “bowl restaurants” have proliferated the United States. Restaurants have opened topping piles of rice or other grains with poke, salad fixings, and burrito fillings, often at deli-esque fast-casual counters where diners pick and choose their accoutrement. In Portland, restaurants like Wild Thing, the Whole Bowl, and Feel Good have cornered this market, as well as the city’s various poke bars. But serving stuff on rice is nothing new, in pretty much any corner of the world. In Japan, donburi — a rice bowl topped with things like vegetables, seafood, meat, and/or dashi — has been a staple since the 1800s at the very latest, though its origins date back to the 1300s. It feels surprising that it took this long, but in Tigard, a restaurant has opened specializing in donburi, with a vibe not unlike that of the bowl restaurant wave of the 21st century. Donburi Factory serves traditional donburi options, like katsu don and gyudon (here labeled “beef don”), as well as the restaurant’s take on kaisen don, which the restaurant calls chirashi don — fresh raw seafood like tuna and salmon, alongside shrimp and unagi, carefully arranged on top of the rice. However, from there, the restaurant goes a little broader, offering dishes like poke bowls and teriyaki as well. Sides include dishes like inari or crispy fried chicken, as well as a variety of salads. Unlike other bowl shops, recipes are set and not customizable; owner Zhongnan Hu, who has about 30 years in the food industry nationally, developed the recipes. That being said, co-owner Olivia Nasteka says the restaurant is meant to be similarly casual and takeout friendly. “The concept is kind of tweaked to fit the lifestyle here, in Oregon, for something a little more fast casual,” Nasteka says. “It’s much more fast-paced in the states, so we’ve created that kind of concept, with casual dine-in as well.” Donburi Factory is now open at 10115 SW Nimbus Avenue, #600.

503area has new update 1 day ago Eating Alone on Lunar New Year
So long, Tiger, and all your chaos energy! by Rose Wong “Why are you eating by yourself?”  The woman held her one-year-old grandson on her right hip, giving the chunky boy a boost when he began to slide. Her name is Lai Szee, but she also goes by Nancy. A claw clip pulled back her gray and black hair, showing off glasses and a sweet, round face.  I told Lai Szee I moved to Portland in the summer and haven’t met other Chinese people with whom to celebrate Lunar New Year, a 15-day East Asian festival marking the arrival of spring and the first new moon in the lunisolar calendar. I did not want to drag my white friends into celebrating a holiday they do not understand, either. I’ve watched them visibly step out of their comfort zone to eat my comfort food with me, maneuvering their chopsticks with resilience and taking their first bites slowly, with seeming caution. They ask me what each dish is. I wonder why none of my English descriptions of my favorite foods—“um, it’s turnip cake mixed with dried shrimp and dried sausage”—sound all that appetizing. “Chinese New Year is supposed to be celebrated with other people,” Lai Szee said.  In the modest-sized dining room of Powell’s Seafood Restaurant, the 60-year-old grandmother was celebrating with a party of 20 given and chosen family, split between two round tables.  The full dining room of Powell's Seafood - PHOTO BY ROSE WONG Lai Szee said she immigrated with her family to Portland, from Hong Kong, as a teenager, and I told her I’m also from Hong Kong. She said she hadn’t been back in “oh god, many years,” but she hopes to visit soon with a travel group of other elderly widows.  The waiter arrived with my dishes: Long stir-fry noodles for a long life. Half a roast duck—meat symbolizes health and prosperity. Chinese broccoli stir-fried with garlic and oyster sauce, because mother said every meal needs a vegetable.  Lai Szee said she had to leave me then or my food would get cold. “If we had more room, I would say you should sit with us.”  With my chopsticks, I reached for the duck leg, the part of a poultry dish an elder would put on a child’s plate as a gesture of affection.  In the Wong family group chat all members are in Hong Kong except myself. Shared photos show a Lunar New Year's Eve dinner in my aunt’s apartment and a celebration the next morning at my grandpa’s. Chinese families traditionally visit their elders' homes on Lunar New Year's Day to collect red envelopes of cash and eat nin go: a pan-fried sweet and sticky rice cake.  In the photos, my grandpa looks older than I remember. He tells me he mostly stays home these days because he can’t walk much anymore.  Since moving to the United States, in 2009, I’ve lived in cities that became home and found friends who love me almost like family—and whom I certainly get along with better than my family.  But on days like Lunar New Year, I feel very far away from home and my family.  I’m visiting Hong Kong soon, where I will eat home-cooked meals and street food I cannot find in Portland and feel my body relax to the sound of my first language. I will also feel out of place, struggling to articulate complex thoughts in my rusted Cantonese or flinching when I hear a comment that grates against the progressive values I adopted in the US.  An immigrant eventually becomes an amalgamation of identities and cultures, never belonging to one place, always yearning for the familiarity of somewhere else.  I refilled my cup with hot tea, the bitterness cuts the greasiness of the food.   Orange slices at the end of the meal - PHOTO BY ROSE WONG 2023 welcomes the Year of the Rabbit. While on vacation last month, my mother put her hand on my hand, at the breakfast table, and told me I have a better year ahead.  “I didn’t tell you this, but the Year of the Tiger was supposed to be a hard year for you,” she said, eyebrows raised.  The Year of the Rabbit is expected to be a time of rest and introspection, following the Tiger’s period of action (I started a new job!), courage (I quit my job!), and impulse (NSFW!).  Folklore binds generations individually shaped by time and innovation, offering a shared identity rooted in agrarian culture. Farmers used the Chinese lunisolar calendar, which accounts for both the moon’s orbit around earth and earth’s orbit around the sun, to determine planting and harvesting. Each month begins with a new moon.  Seeing that I was putting on my jacket, Lai Szee reminded me not to forget my leftovers. She ate beside her grandson, who sat in a high chair between his two grandmas. Lucky baby.
