I have decided to cook my own ethnic dishes because it's hopeless to look for authentic foreign dishes in the Ashland/Medford area. Nevertheless, today I had some decent sushi at a new Japanese restaurant in Medford, the name is "I Love Sushi".
I recently spent one full month in Mexico and traveled all the way from Monterrey to the beaches in Yucatan, going through the central part that includes Mexico City. I was indeed disappointed with some Mexican food in Mexico, I have had better Mexican dishes in Chicago than in Mexico proper, because in many cases, the quality of the food ingredients in Mexico left a lot to be desired, including tortillas. In some top restaurants and hotels in Mexico, the local food has become very Americanized to please the tourist population. Ethnic restaurants in Mexico are the worst, because many are run by people who know nothing of the food they are trying to prepare. Don't ever try to eat hamburgers or hot dogs there, because you will be very disappointed. To me, good ethnic dishes those that are made following an authentic recipe with good ingredients.

Hi there,

I agree that it's easier in most rural areas to cook your own. There's a great butcher in Medford, Cherry St Market, also the Rogue Creamery in Central Point, the Eagle Point Flour mill, growers markets in each town, and there used to be a fish market tucked away on an alley in Jacksonville. Gary West has excellent jerky (J-ville). Those are a few good places to get good ingredients. Oh, and the Asian market by WINCO in Medford. My fav. grocery store was Food 4 Less in Medford. They had a good natural food section, and was far cheaper than most places. Lots of fast turn over, so fresh food.... Good luck.

Oh, and I recently discovered this blog for when you go up to Portland: EAT.DRINK.THINK.

This is true. We have dined in most of the places you mentioned and found that as much as Ashland is lacking, it is the most interesting place to dine outside of Portland.

Last night we ate at a Thai restaurant in Medford named Natalee Thai. I wouldn’t say the service was top notch (could have been due to not enough staff), but the food was excellent! We had a yellow curry chicken dish and chicken Pad Thai. The appetizer (wontons) was great too! This is some of the best ethnic food I've had since I've been here.
