Honeymoon: Portland, OR – Mother’s

22 Jul

Our last morning in Portland, Oregon took us to Mother’s Bistro, a highly recommended breakfast place.

We were informed that we HAD to order the wild salmon hash. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Salmon. Hash.

It came with leeks, potatoes & a touch of cream, served with two eggs any style (we went poached).


Now this was very good.  But it wasn’t mind-blowingly good.  I think it was hyped a bit much.  But it was definitely delicious.

We also tried the bacon, which was oddly… chewy… Hmmm… Good but not great.


Our favorite part of the meal actually wound up being the Mike’s Special Scramble that came with with prosciutto ham, roasted garlic, fresh tomatoes, basil & provolone cheese.  The roasted garlic and basil in the eggs was GREAT. Will be trying to recreate this myself very soon.



I’m glad we tried Mother’s since many people mentioned they loved it, and the salmon hash was very good (and the scramble, I thought, even better). But I don’t know if I need to go back.
