Ok so I was finally able to take Tim to go try one of the myriad of restaurant suggestions in search of....The MONTE CRISTO.
Thanks to ebmfreak
we ended up at the Monteaux Public House in Beaverton.
I really do appreciate your suggestion Mr Ebm and hope you do not take my following critique personally....we really are on a mission to find the *ONE* sammich =)http://www.monteauxs.com/
Nice little atmosphere, service was great. However, I am sad to report that this Monte Cristo (Monteaux Cristo) is not the winner.
The Monte Cristo was tasty mind you, however the one that Tim used to get at Bennigan's was not the french toast with meat kind it was almost as if they somehow battered and deep fried the sandwich.
I had the perogies, which given I grew up in a VERY SLAVIC household, they should be ashamed to call them perogies. Though what they served me was tasty, it was basically the inside of a traditional potato/cheese perogie..shaped like a perogie but missing the dough that should be wrapped around the potato/cheese.
The place was nice, the food was decent however...the search will continue.
I also want to take a moment to also give MAD PROPS to a new coffee place in Hillsboro.INSOMNIA COFFEE
OMG, they have the BEST tasting coffee, the most awesomest workers and live music on the weekends. They are open until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. They have quite a few tables...lots of board games on hand and live music every weekend.
They have a website, so check em out. If you go there, tell them the blue haired girl sent ya =)http://www.insomniacoffeecompany.com/
...and with that dear DP, you all have a great weekend!!!
