Easter Brunch at Local 188
Because M. and I don't have family in the area, we decided to treat ourselves to what is fast becoming our favorite restaurant in Portland: Local 188. We must have good table karma at Local, because we scored a table at 11, with no wait and with no reservation. To start, we both ordered drinks (mimosas and bloodies, each $5).
I had the huevos rancheros ($8) and M. ordered the full English breakfast ($10). And while I hate to say ANYthing bad about Local, my huevos were only okay. M. was pleased with how much food he got (he was worried he wouldn't get enough!) and his delicious, salty crispy English muffin (baked in-house). But I've had better incarnations of huevos rancheros. It would have benefited from more veggies, especially avacado.
But that said, we escaped with a $30 tab, which felt was quite reasonable for a nice restaurant's brunch.
