Oh my gosh you guys, if you have not yet experienced the new Broth Bar by Salt, Fire, & Time in NE Portland, quick, get out your to-do list and add a trip to this yummy haven of nourishment! Before I share my broth bar adventure, I want to reassure you, everything at Broth Bar is gluten free!
I was super lucky to happen upon a special flight served on honor of the recent Feast Portland event – so I got to taste and enjoy 4 different broths: lamb, bison, chicken, & pork – they were all delish – I couldn’t pick a favorite! I later got a mug of lamb broth with chicken hearts to go! Ew, you say! Believe me, if you are scared of chicken hearts, then this is the place to try them – promise! (If would like to learn about the benefits of liver and how to incorporate it into you diet/cooking, Salt, Fire, & Time is hosting a class, Lovely Livers, coming up on November 12, from 6:30 – 8:00 pm)
Before leaving, I picked up an assortment of healthy snacks for my family to sample later (which they completely loved and it tempted them to join me on a future visit.). When I left there, I swear, I could feel the nourishment going through every cell in my body. So, I went back the following week, tried some new things: Dandy Blend, an herbal coffee like blend (which I added a “Ghee & Cocoa Butter Bomb” to), and Lamb broth with a bundle – #2
Rosemary Salt, Grated Ginger, Scallions, & Chicken Hearts. I LOVED the broth with the bundle but I’m on the fence with the Dandy Blend but am not giving up on it.
Again, I couldn’t leave without some goodies to take home so I got a to-go cup of pork broth with the simple stir in of Grated Turmeric – YUM, some more Galactic Hog Skins, Wild Zora Bars, housemade Gomashio, and more!
I just love this place, it’s going to be my go to place to meet friends and great to pick up gifts for new moms, those that are sick or in recovery, etc. There really is something for everyone too- besides broth and the items I listed, there is kombucha on tap & to go in bottles, tea, truffles, some New Cascadia gluten-free baked goods, local cheese, pasture raised eggs, fresh coconut yogurt, freshly made mayonnaise, and more! I seriously am daydreaming about going back!
But I make my own bone broth you say! Well, so do I! I use it for soups and stews, for cooking, etc. but I don’t have all those varieties and when I want to meet a friend or grab a quick bite to eat while I’m out and about Portland, I think this place is simply amazing for that!
Broth Bar is located on the east side not too far from the Burnside Bridge at 115 NE 6th Ave, Portland. The lack of abundant parking can be frustrating but I encourage you to stick it out. I hope to see you there someday and if you would like to see more
