Re: “American Wiener

As much as I love all the places on this list. Sheridan's and fried onion I'm in love in industrial S.E. are the best dogs in Portland. You just have to get there early.

My name is Lisa and I am a hotdog-aholic. Michael's is my fave.

Re: “American Wiener

Nick's Coney is a strange one to throw in there. It's all about the toppings, not so much the dog. The chili and what I have to imagine is Whiz make or break the damn thing, and you almost don't notice the hot dog or bun.
I also think they might have poisoned me last time I ate there, but that's of no concern for our conversation here today.

Who says Chicago dogs have cucumber on them? They definitely don't.

Re: “Wonton Desire

Exactly. I'm so done with carts. Sure, they're fine when you're in a hurry. But they were just another Portlandia (TM) trend, like beards, ukeleles and vintage eyewear.
Fuckall that Yuppie 4.0 shyhte.

Re: “Wonton Desire

I started to read this review and thought this was a real restaurant and then it starts talking about food carts? Like a roach coach? Is this a joke?

Re: “Losing My Religion

A friend and I were looking for a place in Sellwood and settled on Reverends. I ended up enjoying my meal despite a lot of the criticism around this place. While the ribs could be better, the Reverend burger and fried chicken were great. They definitely have areas where they can improve, but I'll definitely be going back.

Re: “Losing My Religion

Sauce should always be on the side and $11.49 for 8oz. of brisket is a bit steep, even for shit that was wood-smoked for 12 hours.

There's a "dive" Hawaiian BBQ joint in St Johns that has some exceptional food I make a habit of patronizing once in a while. Prices are reasonable and the two-person staff is refreshingly non-douchey. Every time I've been there I've heard awesome crust or sludge/doom metal spilling out of the kitchen. Not very Hawaiian but it always makes my day.

Oh yeah, and the food is awesome. The Huli Huli Chicken and tri-tip is crazy good, as is their Kalua pulled pork and brisket.

Oh! And just because this posted the same day as my review: Enjoy the musicless "Dancing in the Streets!"…

Re: “You've Come a Nong Way, Baby

Totally true about the sad-for-vegetarians situation there. I was super excited to try her food, but was completely disappointed with my vegetarian meal. And the portion was small! (hey, I couldn't help myself... I had to say it...)

Re: “You've Come a Nong Way, Baby

you know, i've had that khow man gai... its ok but i'm going to damn it with faint praise. There is grub just as good many places in this town. It's not in the must have category for sure.

Re: “Let's Hear It for the Boy

Good tamales but not low priced in my opinion. They are small tamales and 2 doesn't get anywhere near filling, so that is $7-9 dollars to have a very tasty dish but not a meal. Throw in a side you are getting closer but for this style restaurant and hood it seems pricey. The decor and atmosphere is great though. My only other complaint is that they advertise vegan options but nothing is labeled on the menu (or the one I saw opening week), used to be easy to figure out at the truck. I think the banana leaf veg tamales are vegan but none of the other ones are.

Re: “Let's Hear It for the Boy

And it's "Tamal" (singular) "Tamales" (plural) what the hell is a tamale?

Re: “Have Pizza, Will Travel

The pizza was great. Almost worth paying $5 for only greens I could have gathered in my backyard. But. The pizza was great.

Re: “Have Pizza, Will Travel

I live nearby. This used to be a Mexican restaurant that survived on gambling. I just thought it was another hipster bar now, but wondered why it was getting business. I'll have to try it out now.
