ota tofu PDX

Sorry it's not really about the tofu--I would like to know about ota tofu in Portland. I remember I read an article about that store in Oregonian's Food day section in the last couple years. It was on the front page of Food day. I tried to search for it in Oregonian's website, but failed. Does anyone remember when the article was published? Or has anyone actually saved the article??

    The Oregonian's website is the most user-unfriendly site I've ever seen. It is impossible to search articles. Why don't you contact Ota directly? They probably have it.

      The Boregonian doesn't have a website, believe it or not. OregonLive is not connected with the paper. They license the paper's content for the site. They also get content from other papers and sources. Just so you know... one of the reasons why it's so hard to find anything, they surely don't maintain a reliable archive.

      Now, gumi, Portland is not that large a city. Why don't you just cruise by and check it out. Nothing beats an actual visit...no review or article can ever substitute.

        You can get the article here if you want to pay $2.
        Gumi, if it's that important to you, give it a try.

      If you have a MULTNOMAH CTY LIBRARY CARD, you can usually get full text of most newspapers. Online, from the comfort of your own home/office. Ask your friendly reference librarian.

        I find that Google works better than the oregonlive search function. I didn't get any hits on an Oregonian article when I tried it, but I did get one on a Tribune article from 2005: http://www.portlandtribune.com/featur...
