Any long term reader knows we like to take the train when traveling, boarding at the Emeryville Amtrak Station for all our destinations. Before this train trip to Portland we hung out around the station. We were in hungry mode so we strolled over to the Emeryville Public Market. What a change is happening there! New stores and food shops shine. They have opened up the place in what I would call industrial chic style. For a food photographer, the skylights provide an abundance of natural light. We wandered a bit and decided on Koja Kitchen, a Korean/Japanese fusion, fast - casual restaurant, that started as a food truck. Avril chose the chicken Koja, burger style with garlic rice cakes subbing in for buns. I had the beef bowl, a rice bowl with lots of flavorful toppings. Both items were wonderful! In this age of Instagram Koja Kitchen's plating was camera ready, no styling or fluffing necessary. Feast your eyes!
