Portland Eats: Screendoor

Screendoor Portland, OR

So often I’m asked advice for where to go in Portland, and in that moment I can’t think of anywhere to go! My brain draws a blank and that has to change. My husband and I love good food. When we are lucky enough to get a date night, we like to try a new restaurant around Portland. Sharing my favorite spots around Portland has been on my to-do list FORever, and now it’s finally happening.

Screendoor. Oh, how I love you. If you haven’t figured it out already… I love love love fried chicken. If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, that would be it (I guess I probably won’t live very long on that diet… anywho). I’m picky about the fried chicken I eat. Not mushy, good seasoning, and a bit of a crunch. It all there at Screendoor. While the chicken is my favorite item there it’s not all they have, there’s also a lovely variety of other delicious southern food (omg, their biscuits). If you come to Portland and need a fried chicken/southern food fix, please go here.

Even though I don’t typically eat flour, we do enjoy this food about two times a year. It’s my special treat.

A word of warning: this place is delicious, and everyone knows it. If you head there on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday… you will probably have to wait. Doesn’t bother me, but you should know. The way around that: order take out. Yup. Take it to go and head to a Portland park, or home.
