Data Analytics Chart

Before the first week of 2018 is over, I wanted to review the top posts of 2017 to see what people were reading. Turns out the most popular topic is… pizza. Portland is an excellent pizza town, so it’s understandable. The article about Chin’s Kitchen closing for a short week for renovations was the top post, thanks in a big part to the Oregonian linking to us. Thanks, guys.

I thought because it’s the end of the year, I’d expand the top posts from the traditional 5 to 10—so here we go!

Favorite Eats of 2017

Today is Bridgetown Bites’s six month anniversary! Or is it birthday? Anyway, we thought we’d take this opportunity to roundup our favorite eats of 2017. It’s always fun to look back on the year, and though I tasted my share of straight up duds, there was a lot more that was delicious. Here are some of our favorites from 2017.

Coquine chocolate chip cookie

Chocolate Chip Cookie | Coquine. This cookie is famous, and there’s a good reason for that, as it is more than just an excellent chocolate chip cookie—it features some additional flavors that elevate the whole thing. Those additional elements would be smoked almonds, salted caramel, and chunks (not chips) of high quality chocolate. The texture is both chewy and crisp, and I’d say it’s one of the top sweets in Portland. coquinepdx.com, 6839 SE Belmont Street, Portland Continue reading “Favorite Eats of 2017”
