Happy Hour with the best unique special dishes in Portland.
For many years I enjoyed the good food at Bastas. There are many items on the menu, from Pasta, Pizza, Meat and Cheese Plate, Hanger Steak etc. The recent changes to offer Happy Hour all day, which is served in the lounge only, has many added dishes. Next to the regular offered itmes there are one or two specials added on. A few month ago it was a 'house-made chicken sausage'.
The newly added items are 'macaroni and cheese', yes i know, it is a Ristorante italiano, but it is a great dish for the winter season. The added Raclette Cheese tops of the great taste.
Also, the second dish, the 'Lingua di Salmi' is a rare item to get here in Portland. The cow tongue is prepared right, served with red cabbage, presented nicely.
I really enjoy the little culinary dished offered by Bastas which are unique and available for a short time only. Keep it up, it is always a surprise what addition to find on the menu.
Great wine, great food, great staff.
