A couple of beers washed down fried oysters ($9.00):

... and fried okra ($6.00):

... at Miss Delta:

... where we followed up with tender pork ribs ($14.00):

These succulent swine sticks were sided by creamy mac and cheese as well as some swell spears:

This Mississippi Avenue meeting place was filled with fans of goods fried and smoked. Nothing detour-inducing, just cheap and cheerful fetish foods.

The "Alice Kramden" ($7.00):

... at Herb's Mac & Cheese went right in the kisser with broccoli to break up the pepper-jacked penne topped with crunchy bacon bits.

This honeymooner helping was good, but we got the feeling that the more classic takes would have been more our thing.

We were surprised that the sashimi ($35.00):

... arrived last in our progression of peche at Samurai Blue.

There were some nice nibbles of scallop, hamachi and sake, but the maguro was way too cold for our tastes.

Hotate ($5.00) and uni ($8.00):

... were nosh-worthy nigiri while we rolled in a "red bull" ($11.00):

... maki of eel, hamachi and red tobiko and an "Oregonian" ($13.00):

... with shrimp tempura, salmon, albacore, spicy tuna and avocado (which tasted nothing like the newspaper it was named for.)

Samurai Blue was a friendly fish stop, but not one for our rotation.

Bridgetown Bagels is a new carbo cart with wheels of dough that have a chewy chomp.

We got an "everything" bagel ($1.00):

... as well as a plain one with lox ($9.00):

Both were likeable loopage with a tantalizing texture.

For some reason, Portland has gotten really kneady in the bagel department and these boiled and baked bundles are a bright spot in the rainy Northwest.

Big Ass sandwiches:

... is famed for their creations crammed with French fries - even their breakfast sandwich ($8.50):

... holds a hefty handful of spud spokes supporting scrambled eggs and bacon. We split one of these chubby, cheese-sauced, ciabattas and went into a culinary-induced coma.

Big Ass' carbo-tainers play upon a crowd pleasing combo of huge, cheap, salty, fatty and savory at their hub of hedonism. We're glad we came by to see what all the fuss was about, but may not expand our fundamental feedings to frequent this potatoey portal.

We popped by for a "pop tart" ($2.50):

... from the Honey Pot where a flaky folio contained less filling than we prefer, but the tender pastry and brushing of strawberry preserves was still a toothsome take on toaster tucker.

Omelets at the newly sprouted Café Theobroma:

... were thin half moons buttoned up with mushrooms ($4.50):

... and ham and cheese ($4.75):

These flat fetal formations were okay, but we should have gone with over easies.

Crepes ($5.75 ):

... filled with ham and cheese were white-sauced cigars that placated our pancake pursuit before we departed to meet the day.

The "Isaac Hayes" ($7.00):

... at Blues City Biscuits was a Chef-worthy shaft of egg, Cheddar and collard greens sealed with sausage gravy. This substantial starch Stax made it difficult for us to shut our mouth.

We noted the television tag on this vittles vehicle and wondered if they reaped any Grimm business.

Dinner with pals at Pok Pok meant a couple orders of Ike's chicken wings ($13.95) pork skewers ($10.95), steak salad ($12.95) and a Hoi Thawt - a delectable, busted up crepe ($12.95) with mussels and bean sprouts.

Everything was delicious, but the whole tilapia special ($29.00) tipped the scales with moist meat and a peppery mango salad.

Beer and sticky rice thai'ed this tucker together for a fab feast with friends.

Succulent shrimp ($14.00):

... started our supper at Acadia were a relishable roux-rooted reservoir pooled around barbecued bottom feeder.

Fried oysters ($13.00):

... had salad with arugula radish celery blue cheese and bacon to boost the crisp-crusted gastropod goods while drumfish ($26.00):

... was hard to beat sided with sweet potatoes and shrimp.

A juicy pork chop ($24.00):

... with pickled plums and a pine nut granola was a succulent slab of swine sitting on a cornbread puree.

This bright bistro was a nice nook of New Orleans nosh.
