Portland brunch lovers celebrate! Soon we will have another way to get at the oh-so-fine cooking of Tasty N Sons.

That’s because, as of February 6, we will also have Tasty N Alder in downtown Portland, at 580 SW 12th Ave. Portland Monthly has some of the details:

Think brunch meets steakhouse and a million flavors, surprises, and comforts in between.

Opening date: brunch, February 6; dinner, February 20.

Don’t think Tasty N Sons, the clone. Signature addictions like the Burmese red pork stew and Israeli Shakshuka are staying at the mothership. Downtown will unleash Korean and Mexican inspirations (bibimbap with pork belly, eggs, cowboy beans, local tortillas) to match hush puppies, orange marmalade muffins, and a core of Tasty N Sons regulars like corn cakes with steak ’n’ eggs. This is a John Gorham joint: eclectic will rule the day.

Wondering about Bibimbap? I sure was. According to Wikipedia, it’s “served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot.”

Leave it to John Gorham to find some amazing new brunch dish for Downtown Portland to drool over. Can’t wait to get me some Bibimbap, then write about it!

Eater PDX had previously reported that Morgan Brownlow will be part of the kitchen staff. Apparently, this is big news, but I don’t follow the Portland restaurant scene close enough to know who that is or why I should care. I’m just the Portland Breakfast Guy, after all!

But I do know that Tasty N Sons rocks, and I can’t wait to have Tasty N Alder for some rockin’ downtown Portland brunch.
