Re: “I Love Pho, Amy's Donuts, Fifty Fifty Coffee House

Thanks to this review, I had lunch at Fifty Fifty Coffee House last month. The Pressed Turkey Sandwich was delicious and the Fifty Fifty Iced Coffee is addictive (I had 2). The service was also great, and I loved the atmosphere. I will be back.

Re: “10 coffee stops for superior sipping

Agia Sophia is my favorite from this list. Good coffee and great atmosphere. Colorado Coffee Merchants is my go to place though, for a good mocha and when I need coffee beans.

Re: “Blue Star bartender Nate Windham proffers five spirits and six cocktails you should be sipping right now

Having a drink in this place is safe enough, given the alcohol kills the germs from the last person who used the glass...but don't eat the food.

Both Blue Star and Nosh have taken a huge dive in the food department since the Ivywild has opened.

Just tonight there was something very awful in the crab cakes, and just last week a meal at Nosh left me running at half mast for about 24 hours.

Re: “Uncle Buck's Fishbowl & Grill ranks as spectacle worth seeing, not eating in

John, you're kind of right, in that there's something about my lifestyle that keeps me from fully appreciating the subtleties involved in turning a grizzly bear into decoration. And I must have missed the aisle for people hunting cattle.

Re: “Uncle Buck's Fishbowl & Grill ranks as spectacle worth seeing, not eating in

Your disdain for Bass Pro is more than obvious. I'm sure as you sit at your desk in the city and munch on your organic tofu salad, you have no way to identify with the American hunter and fisherman. Although you may eat grass fed organic beef (I actually prefer it myself) you do so with never having to kill your own meat, it comes conveniently packaged for you at Whole Foods.
I'm sure the aura of conservative America might have been a bit much in that environ, and the "evil" of capitalism was just too much to take. But really, have you led that sheltered of life?
Non the less. Love your paper!

Re: “Pho 65, Canyon Coffee & Café, Stagecoach Inn

We really enjoyed the meal from Pho 65 last night - very tasty food and good portions. We had the steak and brisket pho and it was delicious. Also tried the springs rolls - kids love them, and the combination noodle bowl was excellent.

From Side Dish Jan, 22- Holding the tacos
La'au's Taco Shop (830 N. Tejon St., #110, laaustacoshop.com) is under construction, with both interior and patio remodeling in the works. Look for a re-opening this summer.

Re: “Wild Goose Meeting House lays a golden egg downtown

I enjoyed it last weekend but they need to work on the acoustics. The music was too loud for the space. It would also be nice if they toned down the lights. It would make a cozier, softer atmosphere in the evening. I will go again.

If it is Portland-esque, it has to be good!
