"Clean" is usually one of those overused terms referring to fresh, purely prepared food, but it fits here. The cuisine is simply but lovingly prepared, low on sodium and soy, with an emphasis on quality ingredients and bright flavors. I tried an amazing dry fried...More

Dropped in for lunch. A quiet serene place with very fresh food but little spice. My shrimp dish with snow peas was rather bland. I should have tried something with some spice.

Description
Seres Restaurant, formally Sungari Pearl is located in the Pearl District and has been serving the greater Portland area since 2003. Seres Restaurant features a modern Chinese menu with emphasis on purity. In addition to using organic produce whenever possible, Seres' dishes feature local ingredients such as Oregon's Painted Hills Natural Beef, local produce and beancurd from Portland's own OTA Tofu Company. No MSG or artificial additives are added to our dishes.
Essentially, you will still find every traditional long-loved Chinese food like fried rice, potstickers or Kung Pao chicken at Seres, however with a lightness and purity that are not only delicious but important.
