Tabor Tavern’s Spring menu is amazing! I was invited to check the new Spring items and let me tell you- they are delicious (and a few are a little spicy!) Tabor Tavern is located in SE Portland off Burnside. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the restaurant I highly recommend it. Everything I put in my mouth was tasty and interesting. I thought their beer and wine selection was great and I specifically enjoyed the Malbec I drank with my meal.
I wasn’t able to photograph every item on the menu that I tasted. I got swept away with chatting and enjoying the food. I do want to mention that I tried their Pickled Blueberry + Chèvre salad (arugula, red onion, toasted hazelnuts, green goddess dressing) and it was my favorite dish. Who knew pickled blueberries were so tasty? I enjoyed every bite of that salad. They also served a Mustard + White Wine Braised Chicken with bacon, local mushrooms and creamed peas. It was a nice comfort food dish. I do apologize that those two items were not photographed but I highly recommend them. I do want to mention the Butterscotch Pretzel Bar- it was a-maz-ing! One of the best desserts I’ve had in a long time and it was fun because it was different than your standard pies and creme brûlées.
The Spring Quinoa salad was actually featured in the Oregonian. (First photo is mine- yay!) Tabor Tavern was nice enough to share the salad recipe for you to try it at home… but I still suggest going to the Tavern- less work and great atmosphere and servers. I don’t want to talk too much right now about Tabor Tavern because I will be doing another photo shoot in the near future- so stay tuned for more awesome choices and photos. I will say that Chris Greer, head chef, is awesome and a fun guy… plus he makes bacon jam. So you should definitely hit up Tabor Tavern this Spring. Tell them I sent you.
Enjoy the photos.
