Grilled pork ribeye – Le Pigeon

Skate fish of the day - Le Pigeon
Garlic soy glaze, polenta, roasted pineapple, Maui onions, foie gras teriyaki butter. 5 course tasting menu $85
Le Pigeon, Portland OR

Mmm, this was a really tasty dish too! The pork was really flavorful and I liked all the components. After the really salty skate dish though, this teriyaki glazed pork tasted super salty as well. I think my salt tastebuds were shot at this point.


Spicy pork belly bibim bowl – BibimBar

Spicy pork belly bibim bowl - BibimBar
Japchae, lettuce, red cabbage, carrot, pickled radish, bean sprouts, grilled onion, and spicy sauce. $9.95
BibimBar, San Francisco CA

The prices have gone up for the bowls here, but I still crave them every once in a while since there aren’t many Korean food options in the FiDi. BibimBar is a decent option for a quick, satisfying lunch.

Kara miso cha-shu ramen – Hokkaido Ramen Santouka

Kara miso cha-shu ramen - Hokkaido Ramen Santouka
Spicy miso ramen with double portion of pork cha-shu. $15.80
Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, Toronto CANADA

This was tasty! I loved the spice level of the broth, and the ingredients were great. The ramen noodles also had a nice bite to them. I just wished the chasiu was cut a little thinner so it would’ve been easier to eat. These were pretty thick and harder to eat.

Niman Ranch pork chilaquiles – The Restaurant at JUSTIN

Niman Ranch pork chilaquiles - The Restaurant at JUSTIN
Salsa roja, rancho gordo beans, creme fraiche, sunny side up eggs, goat feta. $22
The Restaurant at JUSTIN, Paso Robles CA

I thought that the pork was great and tasty, but there really weren’t enough tortilla chips to make this a substantial chilaquiles. It was pretty to look out though and the eggs definitely made for good yolk porn. 🙂
