Re: “The Great Veggie Burger Caper

My favourite veggie burgers are house made at Nearly Normal's in Corvallis, they're so damn good. When I found them at the grocery store I nearly swooned.

Re: “The Great Veggie Burger Caper

My favorite veggie burger is from Brunchbox downtown. Get it with grilled onions. Yep!

Re: “The Great Veggie Burger Caper

The Leaky Roof's black bean burger is one of the best veggie burgers I've had in Portland, and I believe it's made in house.

Re: “The Great Veggie Burger Caper

Also disqualified for not being made in-house, but worth consuming: Sweet Hereafter's pretzel burger.

What about the meth caves near the river in southeast?

Re: “Basement Boozing

@askmefirst: I left off the Speakeasy Tavern, Basil Bar and the Basement Pub as the primary bar is entered at street level -- all fun bars in their own respect, but I wanted to focus on bars that required you to descend a flight of stairs to access the main bar area. I'm saddened by the closure of the The Modern Man's basement dive on Mississippi -- that would've been a fun inclusion.

Re: “Basement Boozing

I love the Speakeasy, @nodak_dave! It's a great basement hideout. But, alas, when it comes to writing lists, you've got to make choices. Thanks for repping Portland's other basement dives!

Re: “Drink This!

Please stop using the term "Boozy". Thanks.

Also, I am pretty sure that comparing that drink to a Snapple is a slap in the face to the maker of it. And doesn't conjure up very good mental images for a drink that you were apparently trying to recommend? That's like saying the tamales at tamale boy are as good as the wonderful frozen tamales you used to eat as a youth.

Re: “BBQ Chic

Trying to make something casual like BBQ "chic" is exactly what is wrong with Portland today.

Re: “Bang Bang, Womp Womp

i think Andrea's Restaurant Helper should be a regular installment.

And i think Andrea's pen name should be Small Buzz.

Re: “Ramen Right Meow

Gza1340 What do you think about Boxer Ramen's Tonkotsu?

Re: “In Search of "Spectacular"

I just have to say that I really distrust anyone who uses pr speak like "core competencies" outside of a marketing meeting. That line at the end made me skeptical of the whole review.

Re: “Ramen Right Meow

I don't understand why so many Portland restaurants/carts serving Ramen are intent on introducing the most pedestrian varieties here. If you're not doing Tonkotsu Ramen, you're not really doing Ramen. This is what all the best Ramen joints in Japan make and which have such a fanatical and devoted following. Miso Ramen is good, but pales in comparison and isn't usually found outside Hokkaido. Shio and Shoyu are mainly reserved for the late night drunkards served in outdoor stalls on the street.

Also, can I get a full bowl please? Seems odd that in Japan, where they are used to things being smaller, ramen is served in a huge bowl without having to "add on" anything while here it usually leaves me wanting more and lighter in the wallet.

I know things can't be exactly the same and Portland does things it's own way. I appreciate some creativity and the fact that there are actually options to choose from here. Biwa's ramen is some of the best in town and I definitely will give Noraneko a try. I'm probably more of an outlier here. I'm sure I would be more than satisfied had I never been to Japan.

Re: “In Search of "Spectacular"

And I like to redundantly use the word "price" as many times as possible in my post.

Re: “In Search of "Spectacular"

I know people go out to eat and pay ridiculous prices for their meals, but for that price I could have made a whole meat loaf, mash and veggies and a nickle bag of smokie treats. I guess if you can't cook then you suffer the price.

Re: “In Search of "Spectacular"

Seriously?! $21.00 for a slice of meatloaf. Guess they are pretty proud about their product.

Best roasted beet salad in the town?

That's a heavy boast.
