Stickers Asian Cafe

Stickers Asian Cafe is located on SE Milwaukie Avenue in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland, Oregon.

One of my friends recommended that I try this place out. Stickers' menu contains dishes from multiple countries. There's several Chinese options, like the potstickers and dumplings, but there are also dishes like Thai Salads, Pad Thai, and Bulgogi.

Starter snacks included a sampling of seasoned peanuts (awesome) and what looked like pickled daikon (probably a bit too vinegary for my tastes).

I ordered a half-dozen pork potstickers ($4.95). Beautiful golden brown on one side thanks to the shallow-fried cooking technique. Juicy pork on the inside, and the dipping sauce was pretty good.

The Hot & Sour Won Ton Soup ($4.95 for a single serving) includes three pork and shrimp dumplings in a tangy broth that includes wine, shredded ginger, and fresh Napa cabbage. You can ask for vegetarian dumplings.

The soup lived up to its name, probably one of the better hot and sour soups I've had. Not too sour, with the spice relegated to the back of the throat. Well-made dumplings here.

Stickers has an array of delicious dishes on the menu that are served all day, plus a list of lunch specials served until 3 p.m. They also make their own ice cream.

I would definitely recommend Stickers Asian Cafe as a great place to get some Asian food. Even when I have a growing number of places to visit, I hope to return here so I can try more items. 8.5/10
