April was National Grilled Cheese Month, so if you don't eat all of these show-stoppers before May hits, you hate America. And worse, you hate grilled cheese.
Portland Urban Bistro's Grilled Cheese
1914 W Burnside St; Goose Hollow; 503.764.9633
The Grilled Cheese That Killed Elvis: Panchetta+ cheese + deep fryer= a 5000 calorie hunka-hunka-burnin' casket.
More on PDX's Urban Bistro...while you still can.
PUB (get it!?) is only a short walk from Jeld-Wen Field and is serving up enough booze and high-end bar food, including a Kobe beef burger, pulled pork sandwich, and pan-seared salmon, to feed a very well behaved army of Timbers fans.
The name Grilled Cheese Grill might be a bit gratuitous, like "We get it! This spot serves grilled cheese!", but don't discount this Portland shop's predilection for puns: they do make a mean grilled cheese. We especially like The Gabby: with four local cheeses and a ton of bacon between two hunks of bread, this is the hottest Union since Gabrielle starred in Bad Boys II. Ohhhh!!
BB specializes in ridiculous burgers and sandwiches, including the absolutely huge Burgermeister (two beef patties, two slices of American cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, pickles, Thousand Island dressing, and THREE pieces of bun). Good luck!
Everyone should listen to Prince's advice, and Gil's grilled cheese does: Tillamook cheddar and cream (cheese), you on top.
