Portland Happy Hour: Muu-Muu's

Kelly and I had a rough weekend (she was writing her senior capstone and I was studying for the GRE) so we decided to reward ourselves with happy hour at Wild Abandon. Unfortunately, Wild Abandon is not open on Tuesdays and so we were forced to choose somewhere else at the last minute. We decided on Muu-Muu's on 21st Ave because we stopped there on Kelly's bday back in June and they had delicious spiked strawberry lemonades so we figured the food would probably be good too.

By the time we got there (Leslie came too), we all realized that any sort of alcoholic beverage would make us more sleepy than were already were so the happy hour food menu was no longer an option, though there were some tasty looking choices like spinach and artichoke dip and some different salads for $3 or $4. Apparently Muu-Muus is pretty famous for their unique burgers which they stuff in a baguette with some french fries on top and so at $6.50 a pop off the regular menu, we all decided to put the muu-muu burger to the test.

Well, this is definitely not the type of burger that you can delude yourself into thinking is kind of healthy because it has lettuce and tomatoes on it and it's important to have meat in your diet, right? Yeah, those things are pretty skanky but in the best, most delicious way possible. Plus, if you're a multitasker you're gonna love this because you get to eat your fries and your burger at the same time. Basically, the Muu-Muu Burger is a great choice if you're in the mood for good n' greasy diner food, but their menu was pretty diverse. The inside is quite appealing as well, in a swanky kind of way. Not too shabby...
