Portland Happy Hour: Oba!

With the end of our college career rapidly approaching, Kel and I decided that margaritas were in order. Oba! has been on our "to do" list for quite some time and we were pleasantly surprised by unique interior and, even better, the $6 house margaritas.

After mulling over the menu, we decided to go for the chilé-corn fritters ($4.50), queso fundido dip ($6.50), and crispy coconut prawns ($6.50). The waitress warned us that the queso dip was a little greasy (true) and Kel and I decided that it would probably be better to share it with more than one person. The servings were all pretty large and so Oba! seems like it would be a good place to go if you have a large happy hour group. Plus, with the food ranging from $4-7 instead of the usual $3-5 at the places we usually frequent, more people to help foot the bill would be a good idea. And of course, being the margarita enthusiasts that we are, Kel and I had to sample the marrionberry margarita as well ($6.50). Definitely worth the extra 50 cents!
