Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern was apparently in Portland over the weekend, posting photos on Instagram (sorry, no selfies) of stops at Standard Baking Co., Eventide Oyster Co., Pai Men Miyake and Salvage BBQ. The likeable Travel Channel personality, known for his willingness to put strange thinks in his mouth, appeared to stick with normal menu items on this visit and seemed to enjoy what Portland had to offer. His first stop was at Standard Baking Co.:
He writes, "Standard baking company Portland Maine. 630am. Sadly all I got was coffee"
Next up was Eventide, from where he posted several shots, including this one: "Oyster insanity @eventideoyster"
Then on to Pai Men Miyake. "Pork belly buns at Pai Men Miyake"
Pai Men Miyake in Portland ME is serious about their Izakaya experience ... Great music, cool scene, some great food— Andrew Zimmern (@andrewzimmern) December 28, 2013
And Salvage BBQ. "Truly world class BBQ across street from Maine Medical ... Salvage BBQ doing it all"
@SalvageBBQ Delicious BBQ... Perfect brisket and spare ribs. Really superb attention to detail— Andrew Zimmern (@andrewzimmern) December 28, 2013
@andrewzimmern I'm gonna cry...— SalvageBBQ (@SalvageBBQ) December 28, 2013
Then a return trip to Pai Men Miyake. "Bite of the night. Ceviche roll ..."
