Some Supper Club Action at Podnah's

Dining out isn't nearly as wonderful unless you have some great company with good conversation. The Supper Club adventures continue! My coworkers and I  really appreciate night out since we are in the industry of food, wine and hospitality. Remember our trip to Biwa? Well the fun continues on the East Side, but now we head way up North to Podah's Pit.

hey podnah

 Driving to NE Portland during rush hour traffic is not an ideal situation and I have little patience for it when I have an empty stomach. Skipping lunch was a poor choice. Anyway...Podnah's is located on NE Killingsworth which is a part of the city that has transformed in the last few years. This area hasn't always been the most desirable place for diners like myself to venture to, but now, there are awesome dining spots getting lots of attention. Check out this month's Portland Monthly edition and you will see what I mean. my tangent. Podnah's Pit specializes in Texas-style barbecue. They serve lunch and dinner daily with a Southern brunch available on Saturday and Sunday. We chose a perfect day to visit Podnah's because it was fried chicken day. Take note people...Wednesday is fried chicken day after 5pm. Get it while you can because once it's gone, it's gone. This goes for all of their smoked meats too.
sorry Daniel. 
Dylan thought a Mickey's grenade was a good idea. 
Since it is impossible to decide what smoked selection to choose from, we obviously opted to share the Pit Boss. It has a little bit of everything on it - brisket, pulled pork, ribs, sausage, corn bread and two sides. Our side dishes were potato salad and the featured side, green chile mac n' cheese. The best part about our meal was...we ordered another half rack of ribs. Totally not necessary. I guess that means we liked it? As for me, the pulled pork was my favorite because it was a little spicy and not too saucy.

We had a great time and I know we will be back for their true Southern breakfast.
