Was back to “Eat – An Oyster Bar” the other day, Mrs. BDB was feeling the need for some fresh oysters, and I’m always up for a bit of that “N’awlins cuisine”.
I won’t trouble you with pix, since I had a catfish po-boy, just like last time.
We arrived at the tail end of the Sunday brunch mess, so the kitchen was just switching over to the regular menu, so a couple things were not available. No sweat.
Mrs. BDB had a “make your own bloody mary” while we waited, I splurged and had a Rainer in a can.
The biggest to-do for me was the pile of house-made andouille sitting on the counter, its rich smokiness filling the room. Not on the menu, I inquired of our server, formerly a Crescent Cityonian herself, and she said they were three bux each or two for five.
Well, had to get a couple to go, after we finished our late lunch.
Man, oh, man, this may be the best sausage made in Portland. I never find anything to gripe about when it comes to this restaurant, except for the fact they have been screwing around with adding a muffaletta sandwich to the menu for a year, and haven’t gotten to it.
But I am sure when they finally get to it, it will have been worth the wait.
Two days later, had one of their sausages for breakfast. Having lived in Louisiana and been around the sausage business there, I can tell you unequivocally, this andouille is a superb product!
