pine state biscuits
don’t even compare this bad boy to a breakfast biscuit at mickey d’s. this fella (we got the reuben) was loaded with bacon, cheese, a fried piece o chicky and smothered with gravy. my mouth drools as i write about it.
nong’s khao man gai
i wish i could try all the food pods located all over portland, but this one has a special place in my heart (or tummy). they serve a simple dish of poached chicken and rice but oh. so. flavorful. so good on a cold day!
as much as i wanted to believe the hype (I admit it was delish), i don’t think good thai/asian food should be that salty. or use fish sauce as the primary ingredient for flavor. the chicken wings were yummy and i wish i got two orders instead of the glass noodle salad. i was also a little confused by the water they served which tasted like rice water (which to my asian taste buds tasted like the water they used to rinse the rice…yuck).
kenny and zuke’s deli
I guess the thing to try at this joint is the pastrami. i’m not really a big fan of the meat, but i tried it. tis ok. the potato salad was nice and creamy and didn’t have random vegetables like celery or olives or eggs (those weird me out in potato salads).
heard good reviews about this food pod, so as soon as we saw this, we knew we had to try it. i got the chicken breast schnitzelwich and mark got the breaded pork loin. the sandwich was damn good but the paprika spread was a bit of a spicy party in my mouth. (sorry didnt have time to take a pic of the sandwich cuz i scarfed it down)
tourist trap. i tried the voodoo doll cuz im a sucker for jelly filled donuts. but oh my jeebus, i might as well just snort sugar crystals
