OMSI Museum Cafe

OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) is a very cool museum in Portland. It’s got it all; stuff for tiny kids, stuff for kids my age, stuff for adults. But though it is awesome, we didn’t expect the food to be, too. Fortunately for us and all other museum-goers, it far exceeded our expectations.

The OMSI Cafe is a huge area, with flashy windows that allow you to see the food being cooked, and a better-than-average menu. It has the regular dull cafeteria fare; hamburgers, hot dogs, “fresh” fruit, pizzas, tacos (all these things looking a bit better than any old cafeteria food, though); but it also has the mysterious “Chef’s special”. I got the Chef’s Special, which was carved roast beef, a veggie salad, and white bean puree. The salad was great, with a delicious vinaigrette, spring mix, and rainbow beets. I wish fancy-pants restaurants would make a salad like that. The white bean puree was yummy, with bacon, but not as good as the salad. The beef was just okay, not spectacularly flavorful. It was good with the puree, though.

The OMSI museum cafe is not just “delicious…for a cafe.” No, it’s just plain delicious. It’s the cherry on top to a wonderful science sundae. Just…go there.
