lemongrass chicken banh mi from good girl dinette in highland park, my new neighborhood. i got in on saturday afternoon and after getting to my new place i basically went to the first place nearby i could remember.
the chicken was really tender, so surprisingly good for chicken, and the bread was tasty but it was missing that quintessential vietnamese fishiness. the slaw was kind of a disaster and i didn’t finish it.
chopped pork sandwich and coleslaw from cannon’s rib express. i got the spicy sauce, which unpleasantly had these distinguishable red pepper flakes in it, but i would definitely go back for the sweet sauce. $7, for a huge mound of meat.
chicken salad on baguette and pig butter cookie from chop. everything they do is so good. note to portlanders, they only have charcuterie and a couple steaks at the williams location, not the rest of the meat.
