Hot Suppa!

Hot Suppa

The old saying that, "it doesn't have to be old to be a classic," applies to this restaurant which only opened in 2006. Two brothers from Portland went on their own Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives odyssey across America to discover the underpinning of classic establishments ... they sound like kindred spirits of mine. Either way, they created Hot Suppa! which serves some the the best foods they discovered on their adventure. Notable breakfast items include the corned beef hash, which may be a top dish in Portland. Everything seems to be a bit Southern, which is ironic in this Northern outpost, and almost always has a creative twist; my Eggs Benedict was served on a plate of Geechie Boy grits and fried green tomatoes.
