The Portland Phoenix has published a review of Walter’s.
But we had no quibbles with a “forbidden shrimp” entrée. Like a Neil Young guitar solo, this dish played one note to perfection — in this case the savory quality of umami. The big tender shrimp, darkened by mild Korean spices, rested on a bed of chewy black rice. By finishing the dish with edamame and rich little shimeji mushrooms, the chef enhanced these flavors rather than creating a clash.
