Fodor's Review

A sleek, modern subterranean Japanese restaurant in industrial Southeast Portland, Biwa takes ramen and small plates to a delicious new level. Homemade noodles are the focal point of aromatic, flavorful soups you can enrich with add-ons such as smoked pork shoulder, crispy chicken thighs, kimchi greens, and seaweed. Other adventurous options include yakimono (skewered and grilled meats and vegetables, like trout, chicken livers, and button mushrooms), sashimi

(fresh raw meats like scallops and tuna), and agemono (deep fried tofu, chicken, or kimchi). If you want to embark on a true epicurean adventure, consider the $35 per person Omakase, or chef's choice dinner. Sake choices abound.
