In addition to being the name of our next cat, Mr. Tuna has quickly become a Portland institution. They have a sushi stall at Public Market House, as well as a roving sushi bar that pops up at breweries and events around town (they keep their Instagram updated with their location). If you’re in Portland over the summer, make it a point to catch them when they pop up at The Shop by Island Creek Oysters. Get a spot outside on the deck, and do rounds and rounds of oysters and handrolls.
