I love Gruner, and always forget to take advantage of happy hour. I could eat a dozen of the pickled eggs. Mmmm.

I definitely would have gone for the sausage off the HH menu, but there are a couple of items on the lunch menu that look really good to me.

Dzoli - It still makes me happy!

Mary - Those picked eggs were delish.

JustinM - Aw, you may just have to pay an official gruner visit on your next pdx visit.

mia xara - I know, sad. But you should come to PDX some time :-)

Helen - Haha I googled it - looks a little hungarian, not to be confused with lowering cholesterol, unfortunately .

Everything looks great, with the exception of the rabbit frankfurter (I had several pet bunnies, so I just cannot bring myself to eat anything rabbit!)

Eva - I don't blame you, I had pet chickens growing up and also find it difficult to eat chicken.
