Southland Whiskey Kitchen debuted on my block but a mere month-ish ago. I wish I could say I did research on it (I did not) but from the aura of the restaurant and the vibe of the food- I'd say it's going for Country Western BBQ meets Southern Soul Food. And on a sunny weekend, we felt very happy to head North on our street to visit the West & the South.
|Ready to eat and ready to drink.|
|Walking on over to welcome the new restaurant to our hood.|
|The sign had been painted long before it opened leaving us waiting w/ bated breath for its debut!|
|Inside couldn't be more of a giddy-up, good time.|
|What you do between ordering and getting your food: pictures.|
|Various homemade BBQ Sauces to try.|
|Take a seat, pod'na.|
|Food and Spirits at your command.|
|The Boy's order: The Smokestack|
|My order: Buttermilk Fried Chicken Cobb|
|And topped it off with a 'Bourbon & Bubbles'- yummy.|
|Feeling very happy and very full.|
From the yummy food to the inspired Whiskey-laced cocktails (from a girl who really never drinks the stuff), Southland Whiskey Kitchen can be assured that we will be back. I suggest Portland locals give it a try - but make sure you go on an empty stomach. You'll need all the room for food you can get.
