After finishing a year at WK12, Thor Drake went on to take everything that he learned from the world of advertising and apply it to his passion in motorcycles. After finding a spot just off Sandy Blvd in Portland’s NE Industrial District, he decided to do things his own way and open up SEE SEE Motorcycles & Coffee. No doubt, this is probably the only place in Portland where you can buy a cup of Stumptown Coffee along with that hard-to-find replacement part for the vintage Norton sitting in your garage. Congrats on the shop, Thor. Looking good.
Last Sunday, Eddie Huang of Baohaus fame was in town for Feast PDX and was hosting dinner at John Jay’s Ping Restaurant. It was a reservation-only night, and since I wasn’t too sure of when I’d be in town, I didn’t get a chance to call-in and make reservations ahead of time. Luckily, me, Drew and Sara decided to crash on over to see if we could squeeze in and grab a few seats. I’m glad we did. We ended up getting seated just opposite of Mr Huang himself he as prepared bun after bun.
The dinner consisted of a set menu which included his world famous pork belly buns, organic tofu buns, lobster rice and fried ice cream buns for dessert. The plates came out pretty fast, and as you made buns disappear, replacements were right on their way.
