Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Bos Taurus is making me have steak dreams

Yes it's expensive, but it's also worth every penny, or hundo

Yes, I know it’s expensive. Like, expensive A.F. But, if you love steak, and I mean REALLY love steak, Bos Taurus is worth unloading a few Benjamins from your wallet.

And it’s not just the steak—although just typing this blog is making my mouth water—it’s all the food. Take, for instance, the oysters—topped with the perfect little piece of red pepper—were delicious enough to get a non-oyster lover to eat half of my order.

The popovers, which are delivered hot to the table about the time your drink comes, are so flaky and flavorful, you’ll feel transported to Paris. And speaking of a drink, the smoked Bos Manhattan comes in a glass that resembles high school science class. You leave the cork in to add to the smoky complexity, then pour when you’re ready.

Back to why you should go: the steak. Bos has two kinds of A5 grade Wagyu—the Hokkaido and the Miyazaki. If you’re unfamiliar with Japanese steak ratings, A5 means the steak must be at least 25 percent marbling. In the U.S. Grade A beef need only be 6 to 8 percent marbled fat. What does this mean to the customer? The beef will almost melt in your mouth. Cows that reach the A5 rating are treated like royalty. They are often given mineral water and fed soybeans. In hot summer months, they are treated to Sake and beer.

I ordered 2 ounces of both the A5 choices, which added up to about $120 in beef. More than I’ve spent in about two years on beef total. But when the first slice of Hokkaido hit my taste buds… heaven. Personally, I liked the Hokkaido better. It was like eating a bacon-meets-cow-meets-butter… if meat could be considered a dessert, this would be my suggestion.

Bos has many other steak options that are excellent as well, and not $29 an ounce. The honey bruleed Cambozola cheese was melt-in-your-mouth and the white truffle pommes frites were good as well. They also have non-steak options and the compressed Caesar is well worth ordering.
