Mikiko Moves Into Mama Bird With Weekend Mochi Doughnuts
Starting March 20, mochi doughnut pop-up Mikiko will return to the Portland scene, starting a weekend pop-up at Mama Bird on Saturdays and Sundays. From 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., Mikiko’s Alex McGillivray will sell mochi doughnuts in flavors like yuzu funfetti and wood-fired pineapple out of the Northwest Portland restaurant, debuting three new flavors on the day of the first pop-up. Mikiko started as a pop-up last year, before transitioning into a doughnut delivery service in the early days of the pandemic. After a brief stint at Bar West and a new line of doughnuts at certain New Seasons locations, this will be Mikiko’s return into traditional pop-up territory. The pop-up will run for the foreseeable future. [EaterWire]
Homegrown Delivery Service At Your Door Has Shut Down
The delivery app developed by the team at Botanist House, At Your Door, is no longer taking orders. At Your Door, a spirit and beverage delivery service, was developed last May by Botanist House owners Robbie Wilson and Matt Davidson, as well as development team Beardman Digital, as a response to the coronavirus pandemic and the need to generate income for the local beverage industry. Now, the website says that the company is “closed.” “We started delivering when all restaurants were closed, and a majority of alcohol sales came to a halt. We created this platform to create an alternative sales channel for our partners, and create a safe buying option for our customers,” a note on the website reads. “We would like to thank everyone who was a part of this journey with us.” [EaterWire]
