• vegan pubbin’ at the bye and bye

    a trip to pdx just wouldn’t be complete without visiting the bye and bye. the all vegan pub located in northeast portland has great food, an impressive beer selection, and is the perfect place to sit and unwind for a few hours. just ask our friend little vegan planet, who has a very awesome story about this place in his latest blog post.

    the menu at the bye and bye is simple yet delicious. a decent selection of bowls, sandwiches, and entrees—like spaghetti or chili pie—are all available for under ten bucks. on our recent visit, we decided to split a sandwich as well as a bowl of 3 sides…

    for the sandwich, we went the weeping tiger, which was fantastic and oh so spicy!

    weeping tiger sandwich: braised tofu cutlets, avocado, lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapenos, rooster sauce. choice of one side. $8

    the sandwich came with braised tofu cutlets, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and jalapenos. it was the perfect mix of crunchy, crispy, hot, and creamy. so fucking good. i had tried the meatball sub at bye and bye in the past (which was delicious), and i can honestly say the weeping tiger was even better. we got it with a side of chips, which were of the bagged variety and nothing to write home about, but the salsa was damn good.

    bowl of 3 sides: brussels sprouts, broccoli, and greens. $7

    at the bye and bye, you can mix and match any 3 sides on the menu for just 7 bucks…so we got a bowl of brussels sprouts, broccoli, and greens. these were excellent and really hit the spot, the way a big bowl of vegetables should.

    of course we washed it all down with some refreshing tap beer, weihenstephan and hopworks IPA. bye and bye also has a wide selection of vegan cocktails if that’s more your thing.

    overall, this place is amazing…a little piece of vegan paradise. it’s brightly colored, roomy, comfortable, delicious, and entirely animal-free. what more do i require? …nothing!

    so portland and seattle both have incredible all vegan pubs. come on, LA! the pacific northwest is kicking your ass. get with the program.
