PDX: Ramen and Dumplings at Afuri

yuzu shio

 

Afuri opened in Portland because of their water supply. It’s their first US branch. When I checked out Portland, I knew this was the first stop during my nearly week-long vacation.

They are known for their yuzu shio ramen so of course I had to get that.

The soup was very, very good. I really enjoyed my bowl and would probably try the other ramen styles if I lived in town.

 

buta gyoza

 

What I loved though was the buta gyoza. Did one person really need 8 dumplings? Nah, but I went for it anyway. Hey, I hadn’t eaten all day. Juicy pork in a crispy shell. Yum.
