Industrial Cafe & Saloon
We saw this restaurant on 'DDD' and had to try it. Well, the trip to Portland was worth it. Went for breakfast - it lived up to the hype. I had the corned beef hash, my wife had the creamed chipped beef on toast. (It was killer!) They make their own corned beef - on premise - fry it in a small seasoned pan - it is great - comes out with a nice crust - a little bonus with a corned beef breakfast. The chipped beef - served over sourdough bread was, how shall we say - exceptional. It's gotta be made with whole cream. Rich. But, oh so good. If you are in NW Portland - give it a try. Two nice hotels within 3 blocks - and, as we discovered - NW 23rd Ave. (only a few blocks away) is full of boutique shopping and restaurant choices (re: Indian, French, Mexican, comfort food). We had dinner the night before our breakfast destination at Besaw's - it's been in business for 110 years. We will be back - there is way too much yet to be discovered in this neighborhood.
