Second Act for Tom Yordprom

Today’s Portland Daily Sun includes an interview with the owner of Yordprom Coffee.

The coffeeshop is Tom [Yordprom]’s second act. His first was Siam Restaurant, the highly regarded “nouveau” Thai restaurant on Fore Street which he operated for nearly nine years, until the relentless schedule wore him down. It’s been a year since he traded his chef’s knife and wok for an espresso machine and he’s finally succumbed to the insistent requests of customers and friends. His Thai food specialties are now on the menu: Asian Noodle Salad, Thai Spring Rolls, soups and curries.
