Arrived on foot to this restaurant, 11:30 AM on a weekday. Parking in this area is not easy because of location in NW Portland where construction & parking is at a premium. Located @ corner of 1200 NW 18th Ave, conveniently along the streetcar route....More

I had the Cold Ramen Saled with pork. I really liked the hard boiled eggs marinated in soy sauce and all the vegetables included in the salad. It was an excellent choice. Try the rice tots with ginger sauce. Unique.

Returned to our favorite ramen place to sample its offering for Portland Dumpling Week. The pork filled dumplings were perfect -- first steamed then lightly fried to make the bottom dough have the right amount of crunch. Hope Boke adds these regularly to its menu.
