Spork

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Steens Mountain. It’s located just outside of downtown Bend.  We didn’t know what to expect with this Mexican/Asian fusion order at the register place but the menu looked good and it had a good crowd.  It was by far our best find this year!  Lowell ordered the chilaquiles.  It was a mild dish but good, and they added a small pile of jalapeños in case you wanted to kick it up a notch.  Aidan got the shredded pork rice bowl, the pork was sweet and really well done, with the sauce I can’t describe that had peanuts and vegetables in it.  Dad got the cat fish tacos. Again, really good.  Dad is from the south and knows what fried catfish should taste like -the catfish was lightly fried in clean oil, lightly seasoned and perfectly cooked with a side of jalapeños in case you want to add some kick to it.  I got the Carnitas Sando which was a slow roasted pork sandwich with a fried egg, cabbage and other vegetables, cotija cheese and yucca chips and lots of amazing sauce.  Definitely not the low-fat option but it was amazing.  We SO need a Spork in Portland. We all agreed it would go over really well. Everyone there is really nice, the music is loud, but this helps drown the noise of the kids, and we were in and out of there really fast!  Love!!!

Departure

The boys have been here before and it was awesome again. We’ve never ordered anything we didn’t like. Well, none of is are big on the meatballs, although we can’t really articulate why. The boys favorites hands down were the Dungeness crab fried rice and the shumai. Me and dad liked the crab fried rice and the Spring rolls. The scallops and wasabi beef were good, but the crab fried rice is always the best! And nothing beats tempura battered banana, butterscotch and peanut brittle ice cream!!! They are nice to the kids, but get there early!!
