Totally enjoyed dinner here last night--second Southern-style restaurant I've tried in Portland. This was a hidden gem, in newly refurbished Denver Ave area of N. Portland. I had the blackened catfish basket, fish very light and fresh tasting, not overly blackened. Tasty hush puppies, not overly greasy or too hard to enjoy. Also opted for the "Trinity Greens" = collard,
mustard and turnip with smoked turkey. They do not serve alcohol, but on a hot Portland night what really hit the spot was Sorrel, their signature “purple drink” made w/ hybiscus
flowers, green tea and fresh citrus juices. This restaurant attracts families and couples, and seemed reasonably prices.
