Bite of Oregon
Bite of Oregon 2007August 10th - 12th
From the menu listed here, there are three restaurants from Bend that will be attending this year's Bite of Oregon on the Waterfront Park in Portland.
Bluefish Bistro featuring Chicken Satay with Cucumber Noodles, Potato Dumpling served in Curry Broth, Savory Poached Pear.
Jackie's Ribs featuring Barbequed Brisket and Pork Ribs, Ribblet Sampler.
La Rosa Authentic Mexican featuring Lobster Quesadilla, Portobello Mushroom Quesadilla, Organic Veggie Tamale.
I have never been to Bluefish Bistro and I have never heard of Jackie's Ribs. But hopefully they will represent Bend to the best of their abilities. La Rosa obviously is a favorite of many Bendites so I'm pleased they are going to attend and bringing some nice dishes.
With the failure of this year's Bite of Bend, I would hope more restaurants would step up and display their goods at something like the Bite of Oregon. But I'm not in the restaurant business so I don't know what the benefits or drawbacks to attending events like this hold for restaurants. I know that I would have loved to see more restaurants attend the Bite of Bend vs the taco trailers and caterers.
I want to stuff my fat face with small plates from as many restaurants as possible. Especially the ones that I have never been to so I can see what they offer.
