Introducing Quail Eggs, Scotch Style! We’ll be serving these guys alongside our Giant Tater Tots at The Jade Night Market, this Saturday. Our process: 1st we hard boil the eggs, then we peel the shells, coat them with ground chicken, & add some nice panko for breading. They’re then deep fried & served with one of our three house-made aiolis. Come get em!
We’re super happy to finally be putting food in people’s mouths! We signed up for the next four night markets out in the Jade District. We’ll be peddling Humi’s giant tater tots in two flavors: Plain ol’ Potato & Curried Kabocha. Also on the menu will be Scotch Quail Eggs (if you don’t know what Scotch Eggs are, stay tuned, I’ll be posting photos in the next few hours). We’ve also been messing with a vegan aioli using soft tofu & herbs we grew in our home garden. So come out to SE 82nd for one (or all!) of the next four Saturdays, the market goes until 10 o’clock!
We moved to Portland from San Francisco in late March 2014. We had in mind to start some kind of home-style Japanese food company. We knew only that we wanted to feed people wholesome, contentiously grown food, & avoid making sushi as our mainstay (there’s already plenty of great sushi to be found in Portland). Our reasons for picking this beautiful city are numerous, but what really motivated us to move here was the vibrant, ecologically aware community & the more relaxed pace of life. So we found a place, packed up a rental truck with the cats (& everything else) & drove up.
So we’re here now, pitching our vegan products to grocery stores to sell in their refrigerated sections, getting involved in outdoor markets & catering small parties with set courses.
