Kinta

I just had a heavenly meal at a new restaurant on Belmont, the place is called Kinta and it’s superb. They make simple dishes with lots of style and flavor. We started with fried tofu in mushroom sauce for an appetizer, then for the entr√©es I had the veggies wok-stir-fried in chili-miso sauce and my girlfriend had veggies wok-stir-fried in sweet and sour plum sauce. What’s cool about the entrees is you get to pick the four fresh seasonal vegetables you want them to put in your meal. All the food was prepared to perfection, the portions were huge and the presentation of the food was fabulous. I also ordered a ginger ale. To my delighted surprise it was made right there with fresh ginger. (How the Hell do you squeeze ginger root?) I wanted to try some desert but I was way too full. I know I’ll be eating there again soon though; I’ll try some desert then. I’m sure it will be wonderful.
You can find Kinta at 3450 SE Belmont St. or phone them at 503-234-2623.

    I’ll always miss Scooters, though :( Are there any other local ice cream places in town (gelato totally doesn’t count!)

    Re. the ginger: you usually don’t squeeze it, but grate it, as you would with a hard cheese like parmesan. There are special ginger graters, which extract the stringy, fibrous material and leave you with the juice. (You can also press it in a garlic press, but that is quite a forearm workout, and will usually result in bits of ginger escaping through the top and affixing themselves to your ceiling.)
