I had the warm Brussels sprouts salad, and thoroughly enjoyed the house tofu "croutons" as well as the unusual addition of watermelon. The vegetables were roasted perfectly and were lightly dressed with a complimentary dressing. The menu isn't huge, but most others in my group...More

Returned to our favorite ramen place to sample its offering for Portland Dumpling Week. The pork filled dumplings were perfect -- first steamed then lightly fried to make the bottom dough have the right amount of crunch. Hope Boke adds these regularly to its menu.

My first time here. While lacking ambiance and conversational atmosphere, the food and service were great! I had the shrimp rice bowl. So different in a good way. A nice bed of sticky rice with black sesame seeds surrounded by delicious toppings including fresh yummy...More
