Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Last week, the Source put out its annual Restaurant Guide, in which we named a Restaurant of the Year and gave a tied Rookie Food Cart of the Year award. After we interviewed each place last week, we still wanted to know more! So we asked each of the owners what they would choose as their favorite dishes on their own menu.

We talked with Steve Helt from Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails (Restaurant of the Year), Amy and Courtney Wright of Sunny’s Carrello (Rookie Food Cart of the Year) and Ian Vidinha of Aina Kauai Style Grill (also Rookie Food Cart of the Year).

“We thought it was an easy question, but it turned out to be the best part of our interviews and made for some comical answers,” said Source Art Director and Production Manager Darris Hurst.
