Brussels sprouts addiction? Here are the top 5 places to OD in Portland.
I’ve “hurt myself” a few times with the Brussels sprouts at Boda on Congress Street, but the effects were only a temporary case of cotton mouth from all of the nước mắm that gives them their irresistible salty-savory allure.
I’ve never, however, required medical attention like the man from Scotland I read about last week who actually overdosed on Brussels sprouts, apparently a result of an interaction between the high levels of Vitamin K and a medication he was taking. I gotta say, though, if the end was nigh because I ate one too many plates of awesomeness from any of the following places, I’d be okay with it. They really are to die for.
1: Boda: fried and seasoned.
2. Pai men Miyake: tamari and fish sauce.
3. Walter’s: sesame oil and soy
4. Duckfat: salad of chopped Brussels sprouts, parmesan, apple, pickled leek, romaine lettuce, & herb vinaigrette.
5. Rí Rà Irish Pub: roasted with pancetta and apple
