Five Things to Know About Portland’s ‘Son of a Biscuit’

Thursday, November 20, 2014

This Division Street fried chicken shack flies under the radar compared to restaurant emperor Micah Camden’s other ventures, but why? It left the gate with some lukewarm reviews, but my visits on multiple occasions were finger, hand, and lip-lickin’ good. The main event is spicy, crispy, meaty chicken that tastes just as great as leftovers the next day, but here are five other things worth noting about Son of a Biscuit.

1. A rigid piece of white bread that nests the spicy chicken sops up grease and sauce and love. Make sure you save enough room to enjoy this pearl.

2. One of the side options is a dessert. In this case it's a bread pudding, but in general, dessert as side is an idea whose time has come.

3. There’s fish sauce in the mac and cheese. And Fort George lager, Chinese 5 spice and Aleppo pepper. It works.

4. The old-school biscuits (simply flour, salt, leavening, butter and buttermilk with a post-bake drizzle of honey) are stalwart: hard exterior, soft interior. The Rocky Balboa of biscuits.

5. Generally no wait during prime time.

Son of a Biscuit is located at 2045 SE Division St., Portland, OR 97202.
