Pom’s Thai Taste Restaurant & Noodle House

We’ve all experienced a time in our lives where we haven’t seen eye to eye when trying to agree on a place to eat with a large group. Friday December 12th, 2014 was one of those days for the Page One family. For those of us who craved something hot, spicy and exotic, the only solution was to trust our empty little tummies and stand up for the place we knew we could warm our hearts and souls on that chilly winter afternoon; that place was Pom’s Thai Taste.

Zen Chinese Bistro

At long last Portland has a REALLY good Chinese food restaurant on par with the big cities! Head out of the Old Port towards the West End on historic Danforth Street, and you’ll find Zen Bistro. Maine has certainly not been known for this style of food, but Zen is bringing it to us.  Solid meals all around. They provide that light, fresh, Gluten Free no MSG taste that we look for in Asian Cuisine. Zen boasts that they specialize in gluten free, vegan and healthier Chinese cooking. It should also be mentioned they are the proud winners of Portland’s Best Chinese Restaurant of 2014. We had takeout this week, so for Zen to have such a good review is impressive.
