Our second Bloody Mary stop in Portland took us to Veritable Quandry.

Veritable Quandry Bloody MAry

 

MIX:  Unknown

CHASER: None offered

FIXIN’S: Lemon, two olives

PRICE: $7

While also relatively plain, this Bloody Mary was nice and thick and flavorful.

Mother’s was quite crowded for brunch and it was easy to see why. Their menu was robust with lots of tasty options.

Like many of the other places we visited in Portland, the food at VQ was delicious. And it’s no surprise because VQ is known for its regional market-driven menu by that uses local farmers. Another great spot to hit up when you’re in the downtown area!

We’ve heard that there are plenty of good Bloody Marys to be had in the Pacific Northwest, but until recently, we hadn’t had the opportunity to sample them.

That changed when we visited Portland, Oregon for the first time last week.

Mother's Bloody Mary Portland

 

We visited Mother’s Bistro & Bar for Sunday brunch, where we enjoyed one of their “Famous Bloody Marys.”

Mother’s is a popular brunch spot and we found ourselves waiting for a bit to be seated. Luckily, we were flexible and only had to wait about 20 minutes to get a spot at the bar.

MIX:  Housemade “secret bloody concoction” with house-infused pepper & jalapeno vodka

CHASER: None offered

FIXIN’S: Lemon, celery, olive and pepper

PRICE: $8

While relatively plain, this Bloody Mary had a nice flavor to it and we particularly enjoyed the jalapeno kick, as well as the touch of the salted rim.

Mother’s was quite crowded for brunch and it was easy to see why. Their menu was robust with lots of tasty options.

If you’re looking for a good breakfast/brunch spot in the downtown area, you should give Mother’s a shot.
