Peter Peter Portland Eater has reviewed Zen Chinese Bistro,
So where does Zen stand in comparison to the rest of the Chinese food in the greater Portland area? It’s near the top. That’s not saying much, but it was good. The drink I had was superb. Our entrees were particularly delicious; however our apps could have been better. But make no mistake, the issues with the food were not huge and could be easily fixed if the desire is there to fix them.
and Living, Eating and Aging has reviewed Little Tap House.
So, what’s the verdict? The space is convenient, comfortable and friendly. The beer alone makes Little Tap House worthy of repeated visits. The food is a nice addition and, when it’s really good, it’s worth a trip for the food itself with a nice beer or two as an accompaniment. When the food is “just” good, it’s still worth a trip for a great place to have a beer and something nice to eat. My hope is that the food will become as consistent as the beer so TA, who is not interested in the beer, will regularly give me the thumbs up when I suggest Little Tap House.
