The NW Portland location of "Portland-style ramen" spot Boke Bowl — officially crowned Boke West — is now officially open inside NW 18th's brand-spanking-new Addy apartment complex. Fans of Patrick Fleming and Brannon Riceci's east side menu will find all the familiars: ramen in broths ranging from caramelized fennel dashi to seafood miso (this month's bowl special is a beef curry); steamed buns stuffed with pork belly and miso mushrooms; and plates like Brussels sprouts and cauliflower salad and pork and shrimp shau mai.
Perhaps most crucially, the NW location features ample outdoor seating, with eight four-tops positioned on Boke's corner. Boke West is open right now. Hours: 11a.m. to close, daily.
