If you’re craving some delicious, locally-sourced ocean-to-table cuisine, prepared with care and served up with a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, then head to Meridian at Headlands Coastal Lodge in Pacific City, Oregon.
Before catching the ferry to Orcas Island, we stopped at Adrift for a bite to eat. Adrift’s menu features locally sourced meats, seafood and produce, and the place was packed midday Sunday, with every plate that passed by smelling marvelous. I believe they may also have the best tag-line for a restaurant that I’ve seen so far: ADRIFT – Swell Food for Salty Dogs. Love it!
When you think of great Creole scratch cooking – homemade jambalaya, spicy-rich crayfish gumbo, or crisp-on-the-outside, melt-in-your-mouth hush puppies – where do you think of?I’m guessing that McMinnville, Oregon is probably quite a ways down on your list.
HQ Southern BBQ opened in 2011 in a former gas station, and on the outside not a whole lot has changed since the days when folks were pumping gas there. The place is totally without pretense - and the BBQ is SO GOOD!
