We couldn't be more thrilled to have Chef Jane Hashimawari of Ippai in the kitchen for our March Oyster Social!
You may have enjoyed Jane's food at Castagna or Wafu, where she honed her craft or at the Hollywood Farmers Market where she once had a booth serving warm bowls of Japanese curry and traditional vegetable driven salads. Currently, you can find her at North Portland's beloved Milk Glass Mrkt, where she creates beautiful, seasonal plates for the bustling cafe and also puts on Ippai, her monthly Japanese comfort food pop up.
Her monthly dinners are a blend of nostalgia and craft, where Jane often features her favorite childhood foods. Ippai, meaning “full” in Japanese, captures the warmth, comfort and happiness of her mom’s kitchen growing up.
Come enjoy dishes from Chef Jane, both comforting and new--SEE MENU BELOW!--along with fresh NW oysters and inspired cocktails from Matt of Merit Badge.
Join us! No reservations necessary, just drop by for a la carte selections and restaurant-style seating. Hope to see you at the table, friends.
