This place was calling my name. Literally. Get it? Okay, fine. I’m horrible at humor. I’m an eater not a comedian. And hopefully, my obsessive eating will help you out. Especially for this restaurant, Ox, which happened to be close to my hotel. I’ve been reading about ever since I landed. I would have tried it earlier, but Sunday had a wait list that had me rethink my plans. So here I was on a Wednesday when it first opened at five. Fork and spoon in hand.
Even though this place was known for their steaks, I mean it’s an Argentine restaurant after all, I decided on smaller dishes. Kinda had a tapas feel to the menu. And don’t worry. Those dishes filled me up. I went really heavy for dinner. All my pounds in Portland were probably from this one meal. And if I had the chance, I’d do it again. Maybe add some skirt steak.
Anyways, being one of the first patrons, the staff were attentive and they didn’t bat an eye when I snapped away at each dish. Each one came out at a good pace as I sampled and was ready for a different taste. Definitely got an intimate vibe here. Destiny allowing it, next time I’ll bring my soul moo with me.

Verdict: I highly recommend you try this place, if only for the clam chowder.
