A co-worker and I decided on a whim to go out after work for happy hour. Happy hour always makes me happy. Unsure where to go, we decided on somewhere in the Pearl since it was such a beautiful day. We decided on Oba since I was jonesing for a margarita and we hadn't been for a while.

Most people have heard of the Last Lecture made by Randy Pausch at Carnegie Mellon University. I'm sure you've heard of this, even if the name doesn't seem familiar to you. It was a You Tube sensation.

First of all finding this culinary gem tucked back in a Beaverton stripmall is your first test. Yuzu is hidden in a stripmall with Best Teriyaki in Beaverton (off of 117th). It's across from Red Robin. If you're not looking close enough or if you blink, you might just miss it. There isn't a big neon sign announcing it's spot. There is only a rather non-descript door with a small stenciled sign that reads YUZU. Step inside and you'd think you're in the wrong place. It's a very small & dimly lit restaurant. But alas, you've entered japanese heaven....

I've had a craving for breakfast for the entire weekend. Unfortunately, I worked the evening shift this weekend and by the time I get up in the morning...let's just say it's definitely not breakfast time. For some reason I've really been craving an eggs benedict. Drastic times calls for drastic measures. I called my friend to meet me for breakfast. To repent for my soon to be caloric nightmare, I also ask my friend to go to the gym after breakfast.

After having my yummy ramen noodle lunch, I decided to walk it off in Uwajimaya. I love this asian food store. They always have lots of specialty foods from Japan and Hawaii. They have a great selection of produce and fish. They even have poke in the fish section. The deli serves plate lunches. I like the hawaiian plates here. I can sure make a piggy outta myself. They also have manapua and japanese bentos.
So it was a Saturday afternoon and I was totally craving saimin. Well here in Portland there aren't many places to find saimin. We have an L&L but I don't like their saimin at all. I feel cheated cause I can make a far better bowl of noodles at home. So I was on the prowl. Don't ask my why I was craving saimin....I just was.

Some friends and I went to a Rose Wine Dinner at Andina Restaurant here in Portland. Andina was 2005 Restaurant of the Year. I've always loved the food there. They serve Peruvian cusine. My favorite part of dining there is sitting in the bar with a cocktail and sampling the many yummy tapas they have.
