Today I’m sharing another favorite Portland Eats: Trifecta Tavern & Bakery.
Found in SE Portland, Trifecta is the creation of Portland’s Ken Forkish (the guy behind Ken’s Artisan Bakery and Pizza). Bread is fresh, butter is made in restaurant (and it’s worth the $3 you pay for it), and the food is good. If you’re a lover of shellfish, you’ll find something on the menu here (this includes the oyster bar). If you want to skip the seafood, that’s not a problem. There’s also a wide variety of VERY yummy menu items that will meet the needs for the person that prefers their food to come from dry land. You don’t have to be rich to enjoy the food here. The bar menu is perfect and low cost and if you make it there in time, enjoy the great deals from the happy hour menu. The dinner menu is equally delicious, but it will cost you a bit more. Since I’m pregnant I didn’t get to enjoy the drink menu, but my husband and family assure me the beer is bubbly and the wine is perfect.
I’ve wandered over to Trifecta twice now and our table has tried the: Pimento Cheese Spread (on the delicious bread), Deviled Eggs, Wood Grilled Corn, Oyster’s Trifecta, Brioche Oyster Bun, Steak Frites, Confit Duck Leg, Pimento Double Cheeseburger and Fries, hot fudge sundae, peach pie, and mint chocolate ice cream bar (this was insanely good). I swear there was more than just me eating all that food.
If you find yourself in SE Portland and you need some nourishment, I highly recommend giving Trifecta Tavern & Bakery a try. The staff is friendly and the food is good.
