Alpenrose teams up with Sharis Restaurants for a good cause

Also: David Budd at IMS Capital Management and Bambuza Vietname Bistro at Tanasbourne

BEAVERTON - May through June, customers at Shari's Restaurants can purchase one of Shari's hand-dipped classic milkshakes, made with Alpenrose ice cream, and a percentage of the sales will be donated to Loaves and Fishes Centers for their Meals-On-Wheels program.

The contribution to Loaves and Fishes is part of an ongoing partnership between Alpenrose Dairy, located in Raleigh Hills, and Beaverton-based Shari's Restaurants. The partnership between the two companies includes ongoing contributions to Loaves and Fishes' Meals-On-Wheels program.

'A lot of our customers are seniors, so making a donation to Meals-On-Wheels was a natural choice for us,' said Michael Kiriazis, vice president of marketing for Shari's. 'We're proud to feature Alpenrose ice cream in our hand-dipped shakes and hope everyone stops by their local Shari's to enjoy one during our promotion.'

Since 1970, Loaves and Fishes Centers has provided a nutritional and social lifeline for seniors through 35 meal sites in Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties and Meals-On-Wheels delivery to homebound seniors. With the help of more than 8,500 volunteers, the nonprofit, secular organization now serves 5,000 meals daily and more than 1.25 million meals each year. Visit feedseniors.org.

Bambuza Vietnam Bistro at Tanasbourne

Family-owned and operated Bambuza Vietnam Bistro has opened a new location in Tanasbourne.

'There's nothing we love doing more than introducing people to the flavors and dishes we grew up with,' said Daniel Nguyen, co-owner of Bambuza Vietnam Bistro, who runs the restaurants with his wife and chef Katherine Lam.

Bambuza Vietnam Bistro serves modern Vietnamese food, based on family recipes. The menu reflects what Daniel and Katherine enjoyed growing up, but also incorporates new dishes that inspire them during their annual visits to Vietnam.

'We do made-from-scratch Vietnamese cooking that is approachable and authentic to our region,' said Katherine Lam. 'Portlanders have been incredibly supportive to us and our business, and we're so proud to have the opportunity to grow our business here.'

A self-taught chef, Katherine Lam heads the kitchen and it's her energy and knack for developing flavor that makes these Vietnamese restaurants so successful, and keeps diners coming back for more. You'll notice it in the details - the surprising extra crunch in the salad rolls from the addition of fried, hand-rolled wontons, fresh asparagus or sautéed jicama. Then there are the layers of flavor in the beef pho - a testament to their made-from-scratch philosophy - that is achieved by simmering the beef bones for hours to make a stock rich in flavor. You can taste the care that goes into each dish.

Bambuza Tanasbourne is located at 19300 N.W. Cornell Road.
