Well, dear readers, it is official. This is my first, but most certainly not my last, post about food.
Oh my goodness! We have lived in Portland for ten years, and this is the first time we’ve actually eaten at The Berlin Inn. It’s a travesty, really. We have no excuse, but don’t fret. I’m sure we’ll be making up for it soon enough.
Our divine dining experience included:
A delicious wine flight – four Reislings and a Gewurtztraminer, crisp, fruity, and delicious.
Smoked Gouda and Garlic Fondue with the Bavarian Oktoberfest dippers: fantastically gooey, mouth watering, smoky, garlicky cheese heaven with apple, bread, pretzel, and sausage. The pretzel was the absolute best part: soft inside, a slight crunch on the outside, yum.
Next, because we wanted there to be some semblance of a balanced meal, we had the Cucumber Salad and the Bavarian Wilted Spinach Salad, but in all truth, the Bavarian salad had bacon on it, so I’m not sure that it really counts.
Despite the fact that we had absolutely no room in our bellies, we ended our meal with coffee and two delicious desserts. Gregory’s was the Chocolate Grand Marnier cake, and I tried the Streusel Cake with Spiced Peaches. Every bite was a mouth watering masterpiece.
To top it off, we received fantastic service, as well. The two women that helped us were cheerful, attentive, and highly knowledgeable.
Heaven, I’m telling you, sheer heaven. Gregory, on the way home in the car, said it best, “I’m giddy it was so good!” We proceeded to giggle the rest of the way home.
