This is my second and last Portland post. I didn’t have as many opportunities to eat in restaurants as I would have liked because I was so busy at the conference. But the two restaurant meals I did get to enjoy were amazing–my trip to Hungry Tiger Too was no exception. Hungry Tiger Too has a bar area and a dining area, but my host and I sat at the bar. They have two separate menus: one vegan menu and one “classic” menu.
Since Hungry Tiger is known for its mac & cheese, I knew that was what I would be having. It comes in small and large, and if I had gotten the large I think I might have fainted, since I couldn’t even finish the small. The cheese sauce kind of tasted like chicken stock, which was weird, and while I’ve made better vegan cheese sauce in my own kitchen, it was awesome to order this in a restaurant. The noodles were a little softer than I would have liked, and the cheese sauce a little thinner. It was topped with delicious breadcrumbs. The real standout of this meal was the salad: this Caesar was really reminiscent of the Caesar salads I used to eat growing up, when that was the only type of salad I found palatable (wow, that was a long time ago). The dressing was absolutely fantastic.
I hope I get the opportunity to return to Hungry Tiger. They have vegan corn dogs, and I would love to try one of those. Our bartender/server was fantastic and helped to make menu and beer recommendations. If it wasn’t for her, I don’t think I would have had the Caesar, which I loved so much. The place has an awesome neighborhood vibe and great beer specials. Oh man, I hope I get to go back soon!
