We had another great meal at Farmhouse for our 36th anniversary. On top of some killer Thai dishes, the service issues we encountered on our first visit have been largely resolved, in particular the bar is now synchronized with the rest of the restaurant. So MagoGuide is officially raising Farmhouse’s rating to 4 rostras.
Farmhouse Kitchen may not be the best Thai restaurant in Portland, but it is great competition for Pok Pok. The Panang Neua (slow braised bone-in beef short rib in a Panang curry served with grilled broccolini, bell pepper, onion, fried Thai basil, and blue rice) proved to be the longest short rib I have ever encountered, and if it is not Chef Saengsawang’s signature dish then it should be. An amazing braise, unctuous and spicy with just a little bit of tooth.
