Best Restaurant in Portland- Kachka!
“Kachka is great, Kachka is good, let us thank Kachka for our food. By Bonnie’s hands we all are fed, give us Kachka our daily cherry dumplings.”
Cherry Dumplings at Kachka
We LOVE Kachka, our favorite Portland restaurant for hospitality (along with Oven and Shaker) and food. Plus, all the famous chefs from out of town visiting for FEAST go there! Paul mixes great cocktails, and the wine list is tight with a few really good offerings at fair prices (try the sparkling Szigeti if you want champagne, very good restaurant value at $60).
Congrats to Kachka for your successes and all the love from the press, you EARNED it!
Horseradish vodka? Yes!

Great Wine Buys
Kara Kuehl will pour a variety of California wines that are rich, fruit-driven and a little naughty. FREE
2-5 pm, free.
Not the latest from pop stars like Francis Cabrel or Carla Bruni, but wines that they would surely drink! Come by Lilac this weekend and sample two French wines new to the Portland market, a white from the Savoie that’s as pure and clean as fresh mountain air, and a new Cote-du-Rhone that’s a sure fire hit. As ever, Lilac continues to comb the European scene for fresh new talent…or something like that. All the same, we’re certain you’ll love these!
Noon to 7pm, tastes are free and a glass is only a few euros….See you soon!
