La Vang Restaurant
17790 SW Pilkington Road
Lake Oswego, Oregon 97035
It might be tucked away on a quiet Lake Oswego side street, but if you are craving good Vietnamese food then La Vang Restaurant is definitely worth the trip. And donâ€™t let the strip mall location fool you; the food is darn delicious!
The menu offers something for everyone, from pho to vermicelli noodle dishes to rice dishes to stir fried dishes. They also offer a good number of appetizers to start off your meals.
Typically, I start off with an order of the massive salad rolls served with homemade peanut sauce. The salad rolls are a perfect combination of soft vermicelli noodles, crisp mint and cilantro, and tasty shrimp and minced porkâ€”all wrapped up in rice paper. One of my favorite things about La Vang has to be the peanut sauce, it is practically peanut butter and I could easily eat it all day long! Continue reading Review: La Vang Restaurant
On Friday, a friend and I decided to make a dent in his Chili’s gift card (a recent birthday present, and one of his favorite places to eat). We drove over to the Lake Oswego location to grab a quick bite only to find an empty parking lot.Chili’s was closed. Seal up and completely erased of any Chili’s identifying markers.
What? Just a few weeks ago the Internet was packed with ads touting their new Bottomless Express Lunch.
I had heard that Chili’s was in financial trouble, but didn’t realize that they boarded up four Portland locations almost a month ago. So if you have a Chili’s gift card you’re going to have to head over to Clackamas Town Center–the only Chili’s still open in the entire Portland area.

I wanted to love this place. I really, really did! But, when I know that the Mediterranean fare at Nicholas Restaurant (review coming soon) is just a short trip up I-5 and the Mezze Platter at Sapphire Hotel is available at happy hour prices, I just can’t say this is going to be a Stumptown Lunch favorite.
I’ll be honest; I am a gyro fanatic!! There is nothing better at lunch than a great gyro! So the first time I stopped by CafÃ© Le Delice, I ordered one. It came with a choice of salad or soup; I picked the Greek salad. I also had the choice of white or wheat pita; I chose white. My order came out super fast, but that didn’t change my opinion of my gyro. It wasn’t bad, it was actually good, but I was a little annoyed with the lettuce they used. It’s not shredded lettuce, but large chopped pieces, which was a strange balance with the very slender pieces of tender meat. Continue reading Review: Cafe Le Delice
