This St. Johns bun-galow is yet another Portland food cart rags to brick-n-mortar riches heart warmer. After laboriously renovating a dilapidated North Portland bungalow to its former glory, Ross Skomsvold and Molly Scott were able to move their mobile bao operation into a real kitchen, where they dream up Asian-inspired culinary innovations like confit duck buns, bacon black bean mussels, and miso butter noodles with shaved shiitakes, served with unique house cocktails best sipped in the tiki torch-lined garden.
Another world from the dark deserted
streets of St. Johns after dark, this vibrant, ultra-cozy bungalow serves a steady stream of house cocktails and Asian eats (get the duck plate for two) to an enthusiastic local crowd. In summer, make the garden your post-work home base. Late night happy hour starts at 10:30pm, with cheap drinks and $5 banh mi.
