Re: “Don't Be Such a Phrik the Thai Villa restaurant in Lake Oswego (mentioned above in the listing for Thai and True) open again? That place had some of the best Thai Food in all of the Portland area years ago and I have missed it dearly.

Re: “All-Way(s) a Great Burger

We here ya, Spaceman! We're currently working on improving the veggie patty in the Wrong Way burger. We'll let everyone know via our FB page once we've nailed the new patty. And trust us, we'll get feedback from vegans and vegetarians alike before we're done!

Thanks for the compliment, Melogna! We love the Half-way as well. Our menu is regularly evolving so we're glad you noticed we've updated the salad options.

Re: “All-Way(s) a Great Burger

The Halfway burger though, where they mix half meat with half veggie burger mix, is surprisingly tasty. The one salad I had was underwhelming, but it's off the menu now. But man, i just keep going back for those tasty little burgers.

Re: “All-Way(s) a Great Burger

Yeah, the vegan burger is a bit sad. The original Savoy veggie burger wasn't much better, as if none of the cooks had actually ever tried eating one.

I'll take your pity.

Re: “My Bitter Valentine

Hair of the Dog's, Blue Dot Double India Pale Ale is only 7%, but they do offer a few other beers which are even stronger than the ones listed above.

Blue Dot Double India Pale Ale is named after planet Earth, the only blue planet in this universe, and brewed in honor of Earth Day, with organic Pilsner malt, rye malt and a combo of intense hops. Pours a cloudy (unfiltered) golden, orangey, straw color, topped with a thin creamy white lace with minimal stick. Somewhat pungent in the nose with tons of herbal, floral, citrus grapefruit, raw honey and fresh mint. Fairly full-bodied, thick-ish, smooth, even and creamy. Then the hops come to play with a raw leafy coarseness and big smack of grapefruit, ripe pineapple, salt, rinds, hint of soapiness (not a bad thing), and some sticky resins on the palate. This is all backed by a malt sweetness, touch of honey, and a spicy character unique to the addition of rye. There's some spice and warmth from the alcohol too. Dry and biscuity toward the finish. Tropical fruit esters on the breath.
Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue VII Alcohol: 7% by volume. IBU's 80.

Adam From The Wood is our Adam aged in American Oak barrels. First released in 2000, and released again in November 2011 in 12oz bottles. This 12% beer has lots of the typical HOTD aromas: Caramel, brown sugar, tons of raisin and tobacco. Fig, date, and plum fruitiness in that order. This has a fairly strong earthy vinousness as well as oak vanilla. Alcohol: 12% by volume.

Bourbon Fred From The Wood is regular Fred, aged for over a year in Kentucky bourbon barrels. Released in bottles in 2011. Alcohol: 12% by volume.

Matt was inspired by Matt VandenBerghe and Matt Bonney (Bottleworks and Brouwers in Seattle), who personify the spirit and dedication that has helped craft beer become the vibrant industry it is today. This Beer was originally Brewed to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Bottleworks, and will be released every few years from the Brewery. Matt is made with two Munich malts, two Smoked malts and two types of Belgian candy sugar. It is aged in Kentucky Bourbon and Apple Eau de Vie barrels from Clear Creek distilling. Matt is deep and lush with notes of apple, chocolate and smoke. Alcohol: 12.5% by volume.

Re: “My Bitter Valentine

As much as I hate the generic "overly hopped" complaint about IPAs (are stouts "overly malted"?), Green Flash is pretty much at fault for that. They are the quintessential super-hoppy IPAs. And super hoppy Red, Tripel, and Barleywine. I think they're good for what they do, but also come with very large caution tags.

Oregon Hophouse just did a 12-beer blind IPA tasting throughout January and I'd recommend any of the top four - Barley Brown's Pallet Jack, Breakside's (Great American Beerfest winning!) IPA, Boneyard RPM, and Laurelwood Workhorse. They're all excellent examples of the newer generation of Oregon IPAs, and anyone that makes it through those four without liking at least one almost certainly just doesn't like IPAs. Unfortunately, only Breakside's and Laurelwood's are available in bottles.

Re: “Tasty n Sons Is Now 50 Percent Tastier!

I am glad that Alabama chicken is catching on in Portland restaurants. It is a great change from regular super sweet bbq. The restaurant sounds great. I am inspired to do apple wood smoked Alabama chicken, mashed buttermilk tattiers and some collard greens. Thanks for the inspiration!

Re: “Killing(sworth) It

Beaterville closed up shop? Man, that sucks, though I haven't been back to that neighborhood in about a year or so.

Geez, Killingsworth turned into Alberta lite so fast I didn't even notice.

"...some sort of documentation of what these neighborhoods were like back in the 90's."

You mean like people sleeping in their bathtubs because they hoped it would give some protection against the drive-by shootings? The old cast iron bathtubs, not those new-fangled fiberglass ones.

$7 pudding, $9 bread, $21 chicken. Of course there's a line around the block.

I miss N / NE less every day.

Re: “Killing(sworth) It

Sure. Haters never hate for entirely valid reasons. Yup.
This is for Kimmy as well: what I got out of this review was that the wait is stupid, the food isn't really all that great, and the prices are disproportionately high. I meant it when I said "thank you," because that's good information.

Re: “Killing(sworth) It

hater's gonna hate. :( Kimmy, you can still get a happy meal at the Swan Island McDonald's for about $2.49. Just like in the 90's. I bet you'll be lovin' it.

Re: “Killing(sworth) It

I'm really glad that everyone in the Killingsworth neighborhood can afford these frickin prices. Beaterville would have hated you when you were in college. I'm guessing Reed? Or some other overpriced college where you can end up writing for the Mercury. I wish there was some sort of documentation of what these neighborhoods were like back in the 90's. They weren't the best but who the hell charges $4.00 for sauce and the clients don't blink an eye? You and these shitty, trust fund asshole restaurants are the reason Portland has lost it's charm. It's too late to say "Go back to where you came from" but it's probably a good thing you and your generation weren't around to make us sneer at a few years ago.
