Diversion/PDX: TASTY 'N SONS
I can tell you one thing right off the bat: it's hard to order here. Hard in a good way. There're very few offerings that didn't incite an instantaneous salivatory response, and with the extremely reasonable pricing, your greatest misstep will be over-ordering. But there are, in life, always doggie bags.
Forging ahead, we lightened things up a bit with a brilliant bouillabaisse, chock full of the tenderest chunks of cod, meaty prawns, clams and mussels- all flawlessly fresh. The broth just whispered of tomato, saffron, seashells and ocean, but was mopped up by the big, garlicky crouton any drop that my
pure white delicacy, the simplicity almost defying its perfection.
So on second though, in a moment of clarity only possible after the food-induced euphoria had passed, the real problem in the end is not deciding what to order.... but the 2,898 miles that lie between my fork and Gorham's skillet.
