Restaurant Quality Food Served in a Bar
Posted on 09 / 25 / 2009
I do not drink, so bars don't normally appeal to me, but, as a resident of the midwest, I was determined to try as many vegan venues as possible on my PDX trip. I was SO glad that Bye and Bye made the list!!
I had trouble deciding what to get b/c everything looked good! But I finally decided on the Weeping Tiger. With such a cool name I couldn't pass that up! It was described as fried tofu cutlets, with jalapeños, hot sauce, (I think lettuce too), & some kind of veg-mayo (maybe Vegannaise?) served on bread, & with a side of collard greens. OMG That sandwich was so dog-on scrumptious that I wanted to immediately order another one!! Now, I LUV spicy food, but this sandwich tested my Cuban spice-buds! Not too too spicy, but it ain't for the weak either! The cutlets were fresh & cooked to perfection. Simply, the best darn sandwich, EVER! And I don't know who cooked those greens, but I was tempted to peek in the kitchen to see if someone's Mississipi granny was back there! The were clean, flavorful, and not overcooked. A perfect late-night meal!
And how funny, my name means, tiger, & I almost wept over the Weeping Tiger. It was THAT good! I made sure to tell the waiter how ecstatic I was about their food. When I go back to Portland, Bye & Bye will be my first stop!
