We had heard great things about the Heathman Restaurant and Bar, so we decided to try it for breakfast one Sunday morning. We arrived around 8:30, about 30 minutes to early for Brunch so we were given the breakfast menu. I love Biscuits and Gravy so when I saw the Kahlua Pork Biscuits and Gravy, I knew exactly what I was getting. My partner ordered the Salmon Hash. Our server was prompt with beverage orders and refills. The place was busy, not crowded, but it took a surprising amount of time for our food to arrive. When our breakfast did finally show, I was somewhat disappointed. I saw a large bowl with a decent sized biscuit, but the merest drizzle of gravy. Certainly not enough to coat the biscuit, barely enough to even cover the bottom of it. It did come with a huge chunk of pork. But the pork was vile. Nearly all of it was loose, squishy fat. Very little actual meat. And what meat there was contained almost zero flavor. It needed salt. It needed pepper. It was terrible. I ate the biscuit, which w/out enough gravy was rather dry. The gravy, what there was of it, was tasty. I ate some of the meat where I could find it in the fat, but most I had to just push aside. It was very bad. My partner thought his hash was fine. He laughed since he found a single caper in it. Since capers are often served with salmon we weren’t sure if they meant to include capers in which case they should have added more or if it was accidently included because the salmon was meant for a different dish. This was by far the most appalling meal we’ve eaten in Portland and not at all what we expected from the Heathman Restaurant.
