Now I’m not much of a food porn kind of gal, but as I sat at one of my favorite pizzerias for lunch last week, I realized that the very epitome of my own personal food porn was waiting on the plate before me. The heavenly scent, the doughy texture, enough garlic to fend off a whole hoard of vampires – behold, the glory of garlic knots!
Sure, the quirky Bella Faccia Pizzeria, located on Portland’s northeast side in the Alberta District, is well known for it’s fabulous 18″ round pies, but me, I prefer a decadent plate of bite-sized goodness for my noon-time cravings. The knots, lovingly tied together and served with a red dipping sauce, are perfect with a fresh Caesar salad and the sweet nectar of a Henry Weinhard’s root beer. If you haven’t had a chance to stop in, I encourage you wholeheartedly. And feel free to note your (or your child’s) height on their orange wall as well, where many a past patron has left their mark.
