A good-sized chunk of honeycomb candy adorns the ice cream while smaller pieces garnish the plate; the slightly peppery and fruity flavor you may detect comes from a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. With a tantalizing variety of textures and terrific taste, this torte, like Ox's other desserts, is full of quality and fun to eat.

The large wood storage shed next to the much-buzzed-about Argentinian-inspired Ox Restaurant on Portland's NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard was originally meant to be a private dining room. Halfway through construction, Ox's owners changed course and decided to use it as a casual drinking space for sipping cocktails while you wait (and wait) for your table to be ready next door.
