Dinner Date In Portland

Bamboo sushi restaurant, one of the finest sushi restaurants according to many Portlanders, was conveniently located under our hotel. To put it the test, we reserved a table for two for our dinner date of the week. The bay area has some of the best sushi we’ve ever had, so our exceptions were set pretty high.


Portland is a pretty chill town where high heels are almost nonexistent. Dressing up for our dinner date was quick and easy this time, especially with this romper. Rompers, jumpsuits and dresses are usually my go to for dressing up. They’re easy to wear and quick to style. The only issue with rompers and jumpsuit is the bathroom situation… You ladies know what I’m talking about.

After some quick outfit snaps around the block, it was time for dinner. Even with wide open window panels all around the edges, Bamboo sushi is a very intimate restaurants. Filled with lovers, strangers on a first and friends, it has a unique vibe to it. The decor will transport you to Tokyo without even a passport. IMG_3856Greeted with some delicious edamame, we tucked away in our spot as we browsed the menu. Starting off with a flight of Nigori (unfiltered Sake) for R and a delicious bourbon mezcal cocktail for me, the night was off to a promising start.

Mackerel drizzled in red chili oil, topped with pickled mustard ‘caviar,’ seasoned with lemon charcoal and alderwood smoke… a true masterpiece.


This was followed by the albacore carpaccio. The albacore, so buttery it melts in your mouth in seconds, leaving you with a delicate exquisite taste.


The “potato killer”, although not my favorite, was a huge hit with R. If you love sweet potato like he does, you’ll definitely enjoy it.

Whenever we find it on the menu, we always order an Ume roll. Made from sour plums, it’s deliciously tangy and tart. The best way to clean our palette for the upcoming nigiri.IMG_3914Starting with a extraordinary twist on sweet egg omelette. Dusted with cocoa powder, it was a delightful surprise!IMG_3919

The rest of the nigiri, although not to our standards, were fresh and of high quality. I recommend skipping them and going for the rolls or some of their specialities.IMG_3920

Bamboo sushi is definitely one of the best sushi restaurants I’ve tried. Their more untraditional dishes are utterly astonishing. If you’re ever in Portland make sure to pass by one of their many locations for an unforgettable meal.  Make sure to reserve if you wanna skip long lines and to try one of their many delicious cocktails!

    Yup, we all know that bathroom situation, I deliberately steer clear of play suits because I can’t be bothered with the hassle, but then I see others wearing them (like you!) and I think they are so nice, simple and pretty that I should really open up to the idea of wearing them!
