Portland is well known for its craft beers and fine coffees. If Red Robe has its way, exotic teas will soon enter that list. Since opening in 2011, this tea house and restaurant has been introducing Portland to new varieties of oolong, green, herbal, black and pu’er teas. The food also shines. “This is the best Chinese restaurant I have experienced in Portland!” writes Jon T. of Gresham. Yelpers have good things to say about most dishes. Curry meatballs, marinated beef shank, black mushrooms with greens, and mapo tofu are just a few of them. The authentic Chef’s Menu, available to large groups, is also worth exploring. “Highly, highly recommended!!!” Portland’s Tara P. says of Red Robe’s entire menu.
