An Affordable Feast

Last night, I stopped by Bamboo Sushi, after shopping at Xera Retail and before heading over to Portland Nursery, because a girl needs sustenance while plant shopping.  I have a sushi habit.  I adore the sushi as Bamboo Sushi and their happy hour is an affordable feast.  Plus, their service is excellent. Bamboo Sushi focuses on fresh sustainable seafood, so I feel guilt free as I savor my meal.

The hand rolls are carefully prepared with layers of flavor. Affordable art.

The complimentary edamame are perfectly prepared and topped with a sprinkle of coarse salt.  I'm not usually a big fan of edamame but I enjoy these.
 California Roll  ($4)
char grilled shishito peppers with miso butter and bacon ($4!)
I tried the Char Grilled Shishito peppers for the first time and the dish wowed me.  The peppers tasted smokey and sweet with just a hint of heat and the miso butter and bacon celebrated umami.  My Pirate would love it.
They pickle their own ginger.  It's delicious.
And learning their recipe for making pickled ginger would make my life complete.  But, at least I can take the extra home with me.

I enjoyed my happy hour dinner and then continued on towards Portland Nursery with their gift card burning a hole in my pocket.  I recommend stopping by Bamboo Sushi even if you don't like sushi because their other dishes are delicious too.  What is your favorite sushi restaurant?
