Impossible Burger Comes to Portland

I have heard so many good things about Impossible Burger, which is a genetically engineered burger patty that is completely vegan – basically “meat” from plants, and been curious for quite a while. With vegetarian F, I’ve tasted many a vegetarian burger, and it is usually a sad, mushy, dry, not much flavor state of affairs. Impossible Burger though, is different – it’s supported by multiple fine dining restaurants in food meccas like New York, Las Vegas, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and even Texas at high caliber restaurants like Momofuku, Saxon + Parole, Umami Burger, and more. And now Impossible Burger has comes to Portland. Here’s a list of where and my thoughts on the Impossible Burger

Ecliptic Brewery’s Food

Ecliptic Brewery‘s is one of my top recommendations for where to have great beer and food in Portland along with my other top picks like┬áLa Moule, Higgins (which I’ve highlighted before in a blog post), Saraveza (which I’ve written about before), and Ex Novo. When founding Ecliptic, experienced brewer John Harris specifically wanted to make sure that the food he served wasn’t just around because it’s the law to have food available – he wanted to make sure it matched well with the beer to provide good complimentary and contrasting flavors. The menu of beer and food proves that with its variety of beer available and food available. Everything I’ve had at Ecliptic has always been good, which makes me confident in recommending Ecliptic Brewery’s Food and Beer as among my top 5 in Portland. In particular, they have the best selection of food options if you are vegetarian.
