Mushroom and Beef. Mmm...There are some things you can only experience in PDX. We’ve got bridges up the Wassu, the Made in Oregon sign, the Rose Festival, and the Swift Watch in September.

This last week I had the opportunity to go see the Swifts do their nightly dance out at Chapman Elementary, and it was a sight to behold. We were running a bit early, so we decided to drop by Pacific Pie Co. for an early dinner.

We sat down and quickly discovered just how  indecisive we are, especially when confronted with such a tempting menu. We went back and forth from their Sandwiches to Entrees to Sausage Rolls, and finally decided that since we were eating at Pacific Pie Co., we simply must try their pies.

To start off, We decided to try the Moroccan Spiced Lamb Meatballs, which came out in a delicious creamy sauce and soft pita bread. It was certainly spicy, and I found myself trying to steal a little more than my half of the plate.

I decided on the Beef and Mushroom Pie along with the Rhubarbarian Cider. The pie itself was delicious, and has a great Onion Gravy. My only regret was I didn’t order two.

My compatriot went for the Thai Green Curry Chicken Pie, cooked with green coconut curry sauce, zucchini, bell peppers, and cilantro. If this isn’t making your mouth water, I don’t know what will.

And oh lord, the pie crust: I have not enjoyed such a good crust since grandmas apple pie of my childhood.The Appetizer!

Afterwards we grabbed a Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart Pie to enjoy as we watched the Swifts tumble into their home. Never have I been more content at watching birds than with a Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart pie.

So as we continue to enjoy the fall weather, be sure to treat yourself this fall! While the official Audubon Swift Watch technically ended September 30th, there’s no reason you can’t drop by Pacific Pie Co. for a great dinner. Or if you feel like staying indoors, drop us a line! We can bring some of your favorites right to your door.
