PORTLAND | Aviary Portland was opened by NYC chefs Sarah Pliner, Kat Whitehead and Jasper Shen in 2011. When it opened the food was bold, blending a variety of Asian and French influences to create some outstanding dishes. 5 years on, and tables are still full, the food still excellent. The unofficial signature dish is the crispy pig ears which are served with Chinese sausage, smooth avocado and coconut rice under a bed of greens. Plates are small and designed to share, giving diners the luxury of being able to try a few different things. We loved the aforementioned crispy pig ears and were also particularly fond of the prawn salad, a medley of prawns, snap peas, coconut, cara cara oranges, jalapeno and taro root crisp. Another highlight is the Chinese influenced braised beef shank & seared short rib served in szechuan broth with bone marrow, rice noodles and bok choy.

As you can see, rules don’t really matter here. It’s all about using the best local ingredients and combining predominantly French and Asian techniques and flavours to create food that tastes great. This experimentation and throwing away of the rule book doesn’t stop at the food either. For those who aren’t looking for something to eat, the bar at the back of the restaurant offers a cozy, low lit space to relax and enjoy a drink or two – there are “no boundaries” between the kitchen and the bar, and ideas bounce back and forth, resulting in some interesting ingredient and flavour combinations. Check out the Korean x Mexican creation “zapata’s sour”, which combines tequila, mezcal, corn ‘milk,’ lime juice, aztec chocolate bitters, demerara syrup, gochujang and egg white.

Also worth noting is the happy hour. On Mon-Fri between 5:00pm to 7:00pm, there are drinks specials and some tasty well priced snacks – think things like devilled tea eggs, pulled pork sliders and duck liver toasts.
