The Portland Food Bloggers and I recently visited Smallwares for our monthly meet up. We had an awesome night, with great service and wonderful food. We enjoyed small plates and shared ten so we could each taste the creations from this amazing chef, Johanna Ware. The photo above was taken by me and my Iphone, it was my favorite dish of the night, short ribs, corn cake, avocado, hoisin, smoked mango jam. It got so much feedback on all of social my media pages, everyone wanted to eat it!

Um hello! You already have my thumbs up on FB, Fabi. And I’m dying to try that cured salmon. All the best thing are on one plate: salmon, tahini, pickled beets, basil!
You are the cutest! I totally agree. Yum.
That first pic is amazing!
Mmmm hangar steak with the spiciness of kimchee puree and the funk of blue cheese and acid of sherry vinegar sounds like heaven. Just liked your FB, and wishing you a happy blog birthday while also crossing my fingers for this giveaway!
