Aidan and Lolo get their sushi on at Sho

As we sit here waiting for our food I’m amazed (and kind of frightened) that our almost-6 year olds are talking about how Bluehour has a new chef. At soccer today Aidan recognized a Gentleman’s Boke Bowl T-shirt despite the fact that we’ve only been there once (and it didn’t say “Boke Bowl” anywhere). But here we are, at our dudes’ favorite restaurant. Can never go wrong here. So much so that our dudes tolerate the wait on a Friday night!!!





Sho. The best sushi in Southwest Portland!

If Aidan and Lowell had their way, they would come here every week.  Hands down, Sho is their most requested and loved restaurant.  They have been coming here since they were 2 1/2 years old.  Their first dish was the eel sushi.  They ate it up.  Our favorite Sho story was when we ordered them the Udon noodles, failing to remember that it is served with a dollop of wasabi.  Aidan ate the whole dollop and had to spend a little time outside recovering from his foaming green mouth with dad.  When he got back, mom tried to be helpful with some sushi that she had (she hadn’t ordered it before) that had cream cheese and other stuff that seemed harmless enough.  Not realizing that the bright red roe on top was “fiery red roe” Aidan proceeded to shovel the roe in his mouth.  Back outside with dad.  I was sure we were going home but the trooper came back in and ate some cucumber and tuna roll and all was good.  This place is so nice to kids, and the service and staff and the owner Katzu are great people.  Warning though, sitting at the sushi bar can be a little iffy with young children – stick to the booths.
