It’s been a few months since we’ve been in our new (and first!) home, but I still get nostalgic about our old neighborhood even though it’s just 10 minutes away, and our new neighborhood is pretty awesome as well.
In our old apartment we were super close to a Boké Bowl – a healthy, Asian, “fast food” restaurant in Portland. My favorite dish there was definitely the tofu rice bowl. Tender, sticky rice, perfectly fried tofu, seared eggplant, and kimchi.
It was so delicious I knew I had to recreate it at home. Consider this my inspired version.
