Gratuitous Food Pics: Where the wild things are (eaten)

I’ve written time and again about how much I love my job as a meat distributor. My hands-down favorite part is being able to eat the dishes that chefs create with our meat — from the basic cuts to the more unusual offerings. These pictures are a perfect example of offal at their best.

The restaurant Kingdom of Roosevelt is fairly new to Portland, though the chef has been around for a while and is even slightly infamous in this town for entirely different reasons. The menu is not for the faint of heart — take a peek at the last picture if you don’t believe me — but let me tell you, the food is incredible. Every dish was superbly executed, not something that happens often especially with such ambitious ingredients.

We went for the pie with  soured milk...and again -- incredible!

Besides a cheese plate, there were two offerings for dessert. Blood pancakes with berries and cream, and a birch syrup pie with soured milk. We went for the pie with soured milk…and again — incredible! Seriously!
