Tacos up close at Taco Pedaler
So, it’s National Taco Day today, and Portland has an impressive array of good tacos to choose from. You’ll hear people wax poetic about their favorites—perhaps it’s ¿Por Qué No? with the lines. Or Tight Tacos’ street tacos—now in a new location at The Zipper building. Perhaps you have some favorite guisados at Mi Mero Mole. I’m sure there are others (feel free to tell me about them in the comments). For me, it’s the fresh, flavorful tacos at Taco Pedaler that really satisfy.

We’re back with another roundup of the most popular posts on Bridgetown Bites from the month before (February 2018). The posts about Saima Thai & Sushi were boosted last month by a Facebook post by our friends at the Hollywood Star newspaper, and we are grateful for that. As always, thank you for reading!
5. Welcome to Hollywood, Garden Monsters
While I was sick and not on my A-game, the news of the impending arrival of Garden Monsters was reported by Chad Walsh at the Portland Mercury. Full disclosure: I hadn’t heard of Garden Monsters before this post but I’m sure glad I do now. The menu is primarily salads (“mini” and “monster” sizes), with the option to turn any of them into a wrap, and a couple of “Monster Melts.” They will be renting that little space adjacent to Saima Thai & Sushi that used to be Pono Soul Farm Kitchen’s meat market.

Taco Pedaler’s breakfast tacos, one of our favorite eats from 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.
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”
