Opened in the summer of 2008,Tastebud in Portland; with it’s Italian imported Mugnaini oven serves up artisan pizzas with unique and varied toppings. Perhaps even better are some of the other items that come out of the wood fired oven.
Chef and owner Mark Doxtader’s been lighting up the Portland food scene at the Portland Farmers Market the past several years. Now, with permanent digs in town we stopped by to see what the excitement is all about.
We tried a puffy and crispy crusted, roasted pear, house made pancetta, marscarpone and arugula pie, along with several side dishes, washed down with some outstanding beer from Hair of the Dog Brewing Company. We loved the roasted potatoes leeks and cream, and the clams, garlic, aleppo chilies & toasted focaccia. Wines from Oregon and Europe well selected. Open for dinner 6 nights a week, 5:00pm - 10:00pm. Brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
