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!

 

Shark’s Seafood Bar and Steamer

We were meeting a friend who also has six-year-old twins in Newport to go fishing and we needed somewhere to go eat dinner together. I called and asked if they had room for seven in the restaurant and she said that there were no guarantees (they don’t take reservations) but we could give it a try. We did, and we had no idea the restaurant only had 4 tables and a bar and was slammed.  Despite this the service was great although it was a little slow because they were shorthanded. Our server maintained a great sense of humor and was wonderful towards the kids.  The boys all had clams and clam linguine and loved it, two of us had the cioppino which was outstanding. Dad had the crab and while the crab was good he really didn’t need all the veggies and fruit that came with it.  When we got there and saw how small it was we were sure we would not get a seat, much less have such an outstanding dinner.  But it was wonderful!  Two thumbs up for Shark’s!!

      

Flying Fish Truck in Multnomah Village

Aidan’s favorite is the rock fish. Lowell says his is the cod. Their fresh crab is amazing. So is the salmon, and the halibut, which is what we are here for today. Conveniently located right by the Parsons Farm stand, this place rocks! We are so happy to have it so close to us. Kris is always so nice to the dudes and takes time to teach them about what they are eating! Cannot say enough good things about the Flying Fish Truck!
