Apparently, in Belgium, bar food is both delicious and served at ridiculously low prices. Can’t afford a plane ticket? No worries. Portland’s own Bazi Bierbrasserie (1522 SE 32nd Ave., 234-8888, bazipdx.com) has got you covered. Neatly hidden in a quaint neighborhood off Hawthorne, Bazi specializes in serving Belgian “bier” with 18 on tap, from dark elixirs made with fruit and spice to zesty summer ales. The food menu is even more impressive: For around $5, you can get everything from beer-braised pork sandwiches to Belgian house salads made with apples and toasted walnuts. For snacks, the usual salt-slathered pub mix is replaced here by European-style spiced almonds or baguettes topped with blue cheese and date jelly. You can enjoy all of this from the friendly patio seating area—a great place to spend a warm summer eve with friends.
