Now, normally, I am not the biggest fan of noisy restaurants, but I absolutely love the energetic atmosphere from Tasty ‘n Sons. A week ago, I ventured to this friendly, neighborhood establishment in Northeast Portland to meet a friend for brunch. As soon as we entered (sans coffee consumption), the energetic atmosphere immediately revved us up similar to the effect that a caffeine jolt has on the body and mind. Besides the lively ambiance, the aesthetics intrigued us with subtle brown walls complete with a large, black imprint of a bicycle on the wall that can be classified as “oh-so-Portland”. But, besides the feel and looks of this restaurant, the food lives up to its expectations and then some. Especially for those that cannot decide easily (I’m very much a culprit), Tasty ‘n Sons is perfect as a result of the element of small plates which creates a unique experience with menu items that range from griddle-bacon wrapped dates to glazed yams with cumin-maple to North African sausages with couscous to Auntie Paula’s French toast. Hungry yet? I sure am. My taste buds are already starting to water from just reminiscing about it.
