Spork: Now Open on Newport Ave.

Good news—more delicious food now available on Bend's westside. After a soft opening on Saturday (following a friends-of-the-restaurant party on Friday), Spork, the godfather of Bend's food cart scene, is now open full time inside a permanent location on Newport Avenue (in what was Fox's, the short-lived pool hall).

We ate there on Saturday and Erica Reilly's latest venture was as exceptional as we had hoped. Nothing on the menu was over $10 and old favorites (Spicy Fried Chicken!) stood alongside new ones (Hoisin Pork Belly Sando; Spanish Tortilla). There's a deep list of small bites (fried yucca chips!) and plenty of gluten-free options, if you're into that. Spork is taking a sensible angle in regard to beverages, too. Six taps—thank God they preserved precious kitchen space for actual cooking rather than succumbing to the Central Oregon mentality that demands all eateries must have 20+ taps of the same beer—and a robust mixed-drink menu of classic cocktails and in-house infusions. Sit, drink and snack—they're open from 11am-10pm and later—like 'til midnight—on Friday and weekends.
