My favorite noodle shop in Portland “went on vacation” in August and never reopened much to my dismay. But in its place opened Green Onions Restaurant over the holidays.
Green Onions is a mom-and-pop restaurant that captures the essence of Hong Kong. It’s nothing fancy, just good Chinese comfort cooking - noodles and rice plates. It’s the kind of place where the locals would go to eat if this were Wanchai, TST or Yau Ma Tei.
So far, I’ve had the Shui Kau with soup noodles and also with lo mein. The lo mein came with a green onion sauce that complemented the noodles in flavor. I’ve also had the roast duck (cut with precision - not whacked) and chicken curry with a hint of coconut. Everything tastes just like Hong Kong - actually, even better because everything is carefully prepared without being too oily or overloaded with MSG.
Finally, real comfort Chinese food in Portland!
