[PDX] Random Order muffins
The blueberry muffins at Random Order coffee house on NE 19th and Alberta are the best damn muffins in the city, hands down. Holy cow, they are good.
Cakey but not overly dense, just the right level of sweetness (i.e., not too) for a breakfast treat, lots of blueberries, a sprinkling of coarse sugar on the top for some textural crunch, and yesterday morning, still warm out of the oven. Oy. As I was waiting for my coffee and stuffing hunks of the muffin into my maw, I seriously thought about announcing to the other people waiting in line that they all should buy one, if they knew what was good for them. I decided that would be too creepy, but I was this close. Other muffin varieties looked promising, too--blackberry brown sugar, and plum coffee cake.
It's hard to find a good muffin in this town sometimes. I'll save my $2 for these squat towers of blueberry goodness.
