Kris’ Fish (formerly known as the awesome neighborhood fish truck) does it again!

Ok, seriously folks.  This place is worse than a candy store.  We can’t ever get out with just what we came for.  The amazing fish and meat are enough, but then there’s the crab and salmon dips, the salsas, the zucchini relish, and cheese and salami, and that’s not everything.  But the other day we went in for some fish for dinner and Kris had Dover Sole stuffed with crab and artichoke.  Pre-made?  Just throw in the oven?  Nothing to do?  Kris suggested we slice the top and put a dollop of brie or some other creamy cheese.  Oh my god.  It was to die for.  The boys loved it and it took no effort on my part.  It was creamy and delicious and we sincerely hope Kris does this again.  We love you Kris!!!  Be sure and check out Kris’ Fish Facebook page and if you haven’t been there recently, her new digs.  No more truck!  It’s an actual structure!  Still at 35th and Multnomah!

Now this may not be the most kid friendly place in the Village – depends on the kid.  Lots of cool tea pots that could be broken, and the people in here just want to relax over some tea and food so it may not be for kids that can’t keep the decibel level down, but ours had a blast.  Aidan loves tea so we got him a pot of mint tea which he got to steep himself.  Lowell isn’t really a tea guy so he got some O.J.  This is the place to go for tea, whether you want to drink it there or buy it to drink at home.  Their selection is enormous (and the tea is pretty good too).  Aidan got the berry compote crepes – big hit, and Lowell got the finger egg salad sandwiches – twice.  Mom got the bagel and lox.  Everything was wonderful and the people there were very sweet to the boys.  Medley is a place that seems to encourage conversation, even with 8 year olds.  No distractions, just us and our food and tea.  Everything was delicious, and the dudes ended it with some pineapple carrot cake.  Dudes give it two thumbs up!!
