Bamboo Sushi in Portland is proud to be the first 100% sustainable sushi restaurant in the world and isn’t afraid to provide proof. The award-winning establishment has made a name for themselves, having partnered with leading marine stewardship organizations to ensure the fish served in their restaurant adheres to processes that protect and sustain the fragile ecosystem of the oceans where the fish was caught.
Rather than create an ad for their business, however, this unique video starring a cast of amazing hand-crafted miniatures directed and shot by Vincent Peone, demonstrates a clear understanding that there is a better, more sustainable and environmentally responsible way to tell the story of sushi, as it travels from the ocean, to your plate.

Today, Wally Chin opens the spin off of the deeply respected Chin Chin with longtime friend, veteran chef Chris Cheung (formerly of Monkey Bar). The opening has seen tons of delay (no Detox) but appears to be well worth the wait. Walle boasts a diverse menu that mixes traditional Chinese cuisine with American concepts.
Entrees range from $14-29, and experimental plates like the Walle Burger and the Shanghai Pancake Bun with Shoestring Potato won't be foreign to the menu. The 110-seat restaurant and lounge is definitely worth checking, and will have something for everyone.

Hamburgers, like any other specialty meals, are reshaped depending on their environments. So it’s no surprise the Colombians adopted this dish, and added their carb-heavy dietary supplements in the mix. Xtasis, a pink-neon-themed fast-food eatery in Jackson Heights, Queens, offers an insurmountable selection of perros (hot dogs), chuzos (shish-kebab), sandwiches, and arepas (corn cakes). Out of all the enticing choices on their menu, though, nothing is more terrific than the Super Xtasis Hamburger. [Read More]
