Portland has a lot of “food week” festivals, but I think Dumpling Week might be my favorite. It’s back again, now in its sixth year—this time around you have 35 places to choose from (down from 36 last year) and the price has remained a cool ten bucks or less per dish.

The classic Herring Under a Fur Coat at Kachka, one of the delicious things I ate in the past couple of months.
Well, it’s been about two months since I last visited this little blog, and I sure didn’t mean to be absent for that long. Life took priority—estate work took a lot of my attention, but so did the emotional component of cancer recovery. I just didn’t have enough in me. But that has changed—I still have estate work and am still recovering from cancer, but my focus is better.
The Oregonian’s Fifth Annual Dumpling Week is back here in early 2019—get your fill of dough-encased delights for $10 or less from 36 places in Portland from Friday, February 1 to Saturday, February 9. The dumpling passport is back, too: download it here.
You can find the full list of participating restaurants on the Dumpling Week website, (also in map form) but if you’re like me, it will be hard to hit them all. Real talk: even though I focus some of my time on food and eating, I also have a roster of clients who need my time, too. So, if I was to visit one place a day (and twice on the weekend) for the nine days, here’s where I’d go.

Tournant, 920 NE Glisan Street, Portland
Stop by Tournant to enjoy pozole, a traditional hearty Mexian soup made with hominy, stewed meat, and vegetables. “In many regions of Mexico, pozole is served only on Thursdays and is a wonderful excuse to gather friends and family around the table. We’re continuing this tradition at Tournant with Tazon (which means “bowl” in Spanish) on the Third Thursdays of each month–until it gets too hot for soup!” Bowls of pozole start at $12 and you can opt for pork rojo, chicken verde or verduras (vegan), plus tasty add-ins. No reservations necessary. More information. Continue reading “Portland Area Food Events, January 18-25”
