My daughter thinks that I am obsessed with taking photos of food and posting them to Facebook. I like to see how well I can capture the food that I have enjoyed eating.

I read a few years ago that Portland has more restaurants per capita than any other large city west of the Rockies. That means more than LA, San Francisco and Seattle. There is a lot of ethnic diversity represented in the restaurants in Portland. Portland has large Asian and Mexican populations so those types of restaurants are very common. Besides ethnic restaurants there are a lot of fish and seafood restaurants due to the proximity of the Pacific ocean.
I started thinking the other day about the food options where I live, Milwaukie which is a suburb of Portland. Within two miles of my house there are four Mexican, three Chinese, three Thai restaurants and one Hawaiian. Of course there are the standards fast food places as well. If I want to go out to eat I usually think ethnic and I have lots of choices.
For my birthday dinner the other night we went to Pambiche. This is an authentic Cuban restaurant located about 7 miles from where I live. It was great.

I had lunch at The Bomber Restaurant Saturday. I have not had lunch there in years. I do occasionally eat breakfast at The Bomber. The Bomber gas station was opened in 1947, and the Bomber Drive-In opened in 1948. Although the gas station closed in 1991, the original family still runs the restaurant. One of the daughters runs the family’s catering business. A good friend of mine had her wedding reception catered by Punky (yes that is her nickname). The menu items for all meals are home-style cooking. You can order a variety of great fluffy omelets, biscuits & gravy, Corned Beef Hash and all of the traditional breakfast foods. There is a large selection of both hot and cold sandwiches for lunch and dinner. Comfort foods like fried chicken, chicken fried steak or choose a fresh salad or seafood meal. No matter what meal or what I order I usually have plenty leftover to eat the next day. There are many loyal customers that eat breakfast at The Bomber every weekend. If you do not get to the restaurant before about 9:15 AM there is usually a 20 – 30 minute wait for a table.
Facts about the Bomber ~ a timeline of the purchase and some interesting facts about the B-17 and it’s arrival in Milwaukie, OR. I found this to be interesting reading even though I am not into war planes. Also on this page there are some old photos and a link to the bomber’s restoration website.
The restaurant is full of WWII memorabilia and old photographs.
I couldn’t get far enough back to get the entire wing span in my photo.
