The Honey Pot, Kala Noodle, Mead Market Now Open

[Avila, 7/6/13]

1) N. Mississippi: Pie-maker Mary Sheridan has outgrown her retro Silver Streak trailer, opening a brick-and-mortar location of her Honey Pot Bakery across the street from the Mississippi Marketplace cart pod. The bakery offers both sweet and savory pies, in addition to early-morning coffee and breakfast items like housemade "Pop Tarts" and vol au vents puff pastries. For dessert lovers, the cafe serves personal-sized pies like a chocolate cream stout; pies a la mode and toddy floats are also available. The Honey Pot's cart location, in the Good Food Here pod, remains open. [EaterWire]

2) SE Belmont: The former Belmont Pearl space has shifted to a Thai focus with the recent opening of Kala Noodle and Grill. Thrillist PDX reports that the new restaurant focuses on Northern Thai specialities like Neau Yang steak and hoy tod, a pan-fried mussel pancake. Hours of operation: 4p.m. to 11p.m, Monday through Friday; noon to midnight, Saturday; noon to 10p.m., Sunday. [Thrillist]

3) Southeast: Portland's beekeeping supply store Bee Thinking (which exists because of course) has branched out into the booze business, according to the New School. The spot, on SE Poplar Avenue, has opened an in-building Mead Market and bottleshop, specializing in bottles of the fermented honey wine. In addition to mead to-go, the spot offers homebrew supplies and hands-on mead-making classes, like an upcoming event with Mace Mead Works' Reggie Mace. [The New School]
