A quick mid-may trip to Eugene, Oregon (home of the University of Oregon Ducks!) gave us the opportunity to try a restaurant that had been recommended by a friend: Cafe Zenon. We're glad we did.
The downtown street corner location offers dining outside in good weather, not the case when we were there, unfortunately. The menu was innovative, with lots of interesting edibles to entice us. We opted for a pair of appetizers to start with. One was Samosas, which were described as "East Indian fried pastries stuffed with curried potatoes, zucchini, peas, shallots and yogurt, served with cilantro chutney." These were interesting, and we liked the chutney, but we had enjoyed some very authentic Samosas before that contained lamb, and found them a lot more to our liking than the vegetarian version served here.
The Cafe also has streetside dining.
