Eastside Vegan Sushi Night Popup

On Friday Nov 4th from 6-:9:30pm, join us in Macau Chinese Restaurant’s  bar area for a somewhat wild & dramatic taste of Japanese & PNW fall flavors. Our ingredient selections were made keeping in mind the harmony of flavors that should be systemic to each bite. Almost everything that we’ll be using is currently in season around Portland. This makes it a uniquely autumn-oriented  menu.

If you’d care to come, please fill out a reservation form & we’ll get back to you ASAP with a confirmation.

Also, please note! Because we will have limited staff & kitchen resources, we are limiting party sizes to 4 people or less.

…& that leaves us with this!!..

On Monday, July 11th  we’re going to take over the famed Inner South East institution Portobello Vegan Trattoria (we’re still in the planning phase, so we don’t have a menu quite yet). It’s going to be a multi-course prix fixe dinner, costing somewhere in the neighborhood of $60 per person, & an optional beverage pairing at $25. Since Mondays are the traditional day off for restaurant industry folks, we’re considering it “Industry Night” & offering a 10% discount to those that present a OLCC Server’s card or Food Handler’s permit. A reservation is required for this dinner.

Popup in Portsmouth!!

Hey! We’re going to be popping up in N Portland at the Portsmouth Pantry (a new little cafe at 5003 N Lombard) on Friday, Dec 4th. Come one, come all!

…But try to let us know you plan on coming, seating is limited, as is our capacity to make tons of food.  Send an email to info[at]

But, here’s a peak at the menu:


Vegan, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free Avocado Dressing

We served our Soba Noodle Salad at the People’s Food CoOp Member/Owner meeting on Saturday & a few folks were interested in getting the dressing’s recipe. So here it is, in GRAMS (for approx 5 servings):

24 Apples
6 Nutritional Yeast
75 Avocado
36 Coconut Aminos
12 Vinegar, Brown Rice
12 Shio Koji
60 water

Just blend everybody together until smooth!

…Oh, & find a shio koji recipe here, or (to stay soy-free) use garbonzo miso & cut the amount of coconut aminos roughly in half.

Kabocha No More. 

There’s not going to be a bit of kabocha in our Curried Kabocha Korokke tomorrow, the very last of last year’s crop is gone.  Instead we’re using these black futsu:

Vegan friendly Japanese comfort food.
