Twice-Cooked Pork $10.00
Fresh Fragrant Eggplant $9.00
Dumplings in Clear Broth $5.00
Total $24.00 (feeds three)

Lucky Strike may have hopped from outer Powell to hipper, close-in Hawthorne this summer, but the spruced-up new dining room is all that’s changed. Diners still brace themselves for firecracker-hot fare like thin slices of pork belly sautéed with hot chiles and green onions, and impossibly soft torpedoes of Chinese eggplant glazed with the mellow spicy tang of ginger sauce.

Thick like a pencil, uncannily chewy, and cheap as hell, Duh Kuh Bee’s noodles are among the best in town. Round out the table with a ration of candy-sweet barbecue ribs served in a dining room that appears to have been airlifted from Asia to downtown Beaverton, and you have bliss.
