In Case You Missed It: A recap of our recent restaurant reviews 

RED DRAGON

One of the area's many American-style Chinese food hotspots, Red Dragon serves up enormous portions of favorites like Monoglian Beef and General Tso's chicken. Chef Casey Chan, a native of Hong Kong, prepares dishes with Szechuan, Hunan, Mongolian, Cantonese and American roots. While it's not fine dining by any means, Red Dragon is sure to please when you're craving heaping servings of steaming wok- fried goodness. 61247 S. Highway 97. (541) 389-9888.

JEN'S GARDEN

This Sisters gem, owned by Jennifer and T.R. McCrystal, is a fine-dining foodie haven. The award-winning restaurant serves up la carte dishes as well as a reasonably priced prix-fixe menu Wednesday-Sunday. Dishes range from roasted chicken with homemade gnocchi in parmesan broth to sautéed cod with saffron aoli. All of the food is beautifully prepared and thoughtfully composed, making Jen's Garden one of the best fine dining experiences in Central Oregon. 404 E. Hood Ave., Sisters. 541-549-2699.

SPORK

This mobile street food kitchen - housed in a '62 Airstream trailer - serves some of the most creative and affordable food in Bend. Chef Jeff Hunt, formerly of Marz Bistro, is in charge of the stoves. Locations change every few weeks, but it's worth tracking down this kitchen-on-wheels for their pork-belly sandwich alone. Kudos to Spork for its environmentally friendly practices, including using compostable dishes and biodegradable cleaning products. Check Sporkbend.com for current location and hours. 541-390-0946.

EL POLLO GORDO

Owners Ron and Diane Burns opened El Pollo Gordo in 2008 with a mission to provide "fresh and healthy food at a reasonable price." Everything on the menu is cooked in small batches three to four times each day, from beans to salsa to rice. Tacos are a dollar and are some of the best in the area. With endless combinations of chicken meals, salads, burritos and tacos, hormone- and additive-free rotisserie chicken and a brilliant salsa bar, El Pollo Gordo lives up to its moniker. 1939 NE 3rd St. 541-318-7883.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
