|Aviary Kitchen is the Star with the Food|
Aviary is just off the street with a nice little patio to take advantage of great weather in the spring and summer. Tonight I went with my colleague Koushik who loves great food we made a decision to enjoy a few shared small plates so we could sample Aviary's great looking tastes.
|Beans with Green Curry|
Red Curry Braised Goat. I love Goat, I do not find it gamey and typically there is enough fat in it to make it very tender and flavorful. Red Curry is one of my specialties that I love to make because it uses Red Chiles and brings up the heat level. The meal was served with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Kabocha Squash, Goat Cheese Gnocchi and Kaffir Lime. Kaffir Lime is used with many Curry Dishes to bring in that lime taste. I use the leaves to cook curry they have an amazing lime flavor mostly from the oil. Take a bite of Red Curry Goat and cool down the palate with the Cherry Tomato. Really a fun tasty dish.
The last plate was Crispy Pig Ear which my guest would not try but I was

Overall this was another great Portland meal made by a great chef who enjoys different ingredients and creativity.
