Adopt a Bend OR Restaurant - This Week Miyagi Ramen

Reblogger Lise Howe
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

This is not really a complaint but just an expression of my current state of mind at 10:30 on Sunday morning!  I am tired of cooking dinner every night.  I like cooking new recipes and trying new cuisines - it is sort of a magic carpet ride on a tasting spoon! Unfortunately the things in my pantry are not really geared for experimental evenings - my pantry, shelves and freezer are not set up for new recipes.  I have the ingredients for the tried and true in my kitchen.  I really have appreciated Will Hamm, Roy Kelley and Richard Weeks for their recipe postings - particularly because most of the ingredients are al ready in my house!  THANKS GUYS!!!!

The other approach to the dinner dilemma is to order in your meal.  This has two great benefits.  You avoid the dinner doldrums and.... more importantly.... you are supporting a local business!  Those local restaurants are really suffering right now and so you are accomplishing two goals at once - a change of taste and supporting your local businesses.

I read a post however from a local restaurant owner recently, urging us all to delete the food delivery apps from our phones.  Services like GrubHub, UberEats and Doordash charge the restaurant up to 30% of the total bill for food ordered.  With restaurants holding on to a very thin lifeline, it is important to them to get all the revenue possible. 

So... what are you having for dinner tonight?  We ordered in last night from Passage to India and I am trying a new Chinese restaurant!

Miyagi Ramen Has Great Food at Great Prices

In our ongoing effort to support local restaurants which are struggling during the Covid-19 restrictions, Bend Premier Real Estate Brokers are focusing on Miyagi Ramen this week.

Located in the Box Factory on Industrial Way near the Old Mill Shopping Center in Bend, we purchased the Black Sesame Dan Dan (spicy minced pork, baby bok choy, cilantro, lime and fermented black bean) and the Tonkotsu (chashu pork belly, nori, pickled burdock root, bamboo shoot, soft egg, scallion) and an order of Tempura Miatake Mushroom steamed buns (two per order).  For a price of $33, we were totally satisfied and felt our meal was well priced and delicious. The to-go service was ready right when I arrived to pick up our meal; they would have walked the food out to my car if I had provided information on the make and model.

We will go back and enjoy the Miyagi Ramen food again. As one of our local restaurants, we want them to be here when our Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed. Purchasing take out meals is the one way we can help them keep their business going during this difficult time.

Good morning, Lise Howe you gave two great reasons to order out for dinner.... I can't do that.... I'd have to ask them to 'hold" 6 or 7 ingredients and the end product would not be edible!!!!LOL

Hi Lise - we order directly from various neighborhood restaurants twice a week, and pick up from them at the end of our daily walk. I want these independent restaurants and cafes to weather our current storm. We, too, are ordering Chinese tonight--great minds (or great stomachs!) think alike.

Thank you for reblogging my post, Lise Howe .  We are supporting a new restaurant as a brokerage each week - and I am trying food I have never tried before. The appreciation that these restaurant owners are showing us is also very special. Although small, collectively we are making a difference in keeping these businesses going through this difficult time.

Great thoughts  Ailina and I cook together 6 night per week and then we adopt a local "mom & pop" non-chain restaurant once per week to support and take a night off of cooking. It's a fun way to support local businesses.

Lise, I am in agreement with you!!!!   As a single person, it is difficult to make dinner for one each and every night!

Lise, no food delivery service for me, it is an opportunity to get out of the house.  We had pizza last night from one of our favorite pizza restaurants who just opened up again.  But today the temperature is 80 degree, so I will be firing up the grill.

Hi Lise Howe - Sedona is a small town and it is easy to get where you want to go in minutes.  I order once a week and pick it up.  I do not rely on delivery services. That is just one more person to touch things!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - you make a very good point about too many people touching the food

George Souto = pizza is certainly one of the go to meals recently!  I got a steak today and charcoal so if it doesn't rain tomorrow maybe that will be dinner!
