Belgium's cuisine has never been as lauded as its beer, which's weird considering the frites are famous, the waffles are wonderful, and the mussels from Brussels are amazing, even when Chong Li throws that weird dust in their eyes and they have to fight on the strength of their four other senses alone. Changing all that:
that dude who fights like a monkey Bazi Bierbrasserie.
Inspired by the Portland brewing community's new-found love of Belgian styles, Bazi (or "scoundrel", as translated by Princess Leia) was created as a place to compare stateside homages to true Belgians, all while sampling that nation's oft-overlooked cuisine in cavernous garage-like confines rocking a bar built from old Jim Beam distillery floorboards and a 114in HDTV to watch the Timbers make like trees, and win. Because that's just how things work, Bazi emphasizes beer, from the sour-cherry sweetness of Duchesse de Bourgogne, to the rarely-tapped Delirium Tremens, to locals like Upright's #7, all poured through a Monaco tap system allowing different temps for each, and long spouts so you always get perfect head from your Hoegaarden...heyooo!! All that's just a warmup for the chow, including Flemish frites w/ house mayo, mussels made with brune beer, a beer-braised pork sammie w/ pickled onions, and a mashed potato melange called stoemp (pronounce "shtoomp") with special daily add-ons like gruyere, bacon, and mornay sauce, not to be confused with De Mornay sauce, which Rebecca should never have before getting anywhere near a motor vehicle.
To service crazies who don't dig on bier, Bazi also rocks a fine cocktail list with goods like the rum/ blood orange Schipperke, and the vodka/ cranberry/ fresh lemon-lime juice/ simple syrup Brussels Cosmo, which mostly features articles about how to please your Jean-Claude Van-Man.
