Photos for Amazon Restaurants

I did a fun and delicious month-long project photographing food at Portland restaurants for Amazon.  Amazon just released a new product called Amazon Restaurants.  Amazon Prime subscribers can order food from a large list of local restaurants and have it delivered within an hour without price mark-ups or delivery charges.  

I took photos at about 20 restaurants, and wanted to share some of my favorite shots, and favorite dishes. 

Homous - Aladin's Cafe.  Good food, great presentation.

Happy Family - Dragonwell Bistro.  It's the best Chinese food I've had in a long time.  Tastes yummy, and healthy-- they don't go nuts with the salt, sugar or batter.  Very nice ambience.  Specializing in cuisine of the Hangzhou region of Southern China.

California Burrito - Tacos Chavez.  I was shocked at how good this burrito was, stuffed with steak, french fries and all.  I highly recommend this restaurant, which has a humble exterior, but good quality Mexican food inside.

House Special Pizza - Old Town Pizza.  Really good pizza, great ambience.  The building is supposedly haunted.

General Tso's Chicken - Dragonwell Bistro.  I brought some home to share with my family.  My 2-year-old son Charlie loved it and said he wanted some more "Big Toe Chicken."
