Shirley Mae’s puts the soul in soul food Wednesday, Oct 16 2019 

Some say that the art of soul, in music or in food, can never be mastered by white folks, and I can buy this hypothesis: Lacking a history of slavery and oppression, we just don’t have the tools born of heritage. But we can certainly enjoy soul, and honor it, whether we’re listening to Aretha … Continue reading Shirley Mae’s puts the soul in soul food

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if every restaurant followed the pay-what-you-can model of The Table in Portland?

La Sierra Tarasca’s carnitas warms our hearts Wednesday, Aug 21 2019 

There’s a special place in my heart for Mexican eateries like La Sierra Tarasca. First, and not least, in a time when the president calls our Latin American neighbors thugs, criminals and rapists and orders refugee families separated at the border, it’s time for the rest of us to stand up for our Latinx brothers and sisters, whether … Continue reading La Sierra Tarasca’s carnitas warms our hearts

Burger Girl fills our diner needs whenever we’re up Wednesday, Jul 17 2019 

I got the jingle “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun” stuck in my head the other day, and there was no way to stave off the crave. So I blasted off to get one. No, not Mickey D’s. Better. The double bison burger at the new Burger … Continue reading Burger Girl fills our diner needs whenever we’re up
