The Great Lost Bear is one of my favorites. It is a local place located in Portland. It is wonderful.
My boyfriend and I went here one with day with his cousin. We had some amazing food.
The Great Lost Bear is a college hang out, so some of their food choices are completely things you would only eat when you are drunk, dared, or hungover. One example of this is the entree that my boyfriend ordered. It was called The Almighty Chessus Burger.
It was GOOD. The meal is a burger that is not served with a bun. Instead, the burger is served in between two toasted cheese sandwiches... it's great, although it will probably give you a heart attack.
At the time of this visit I was in the middle of another one of my weight loss kicks (these occur about once every 3 days). Because if this temporary "kick" I ordered the Cajun Fried Chicken Salad.
It was huge and great. The salad greens were very crisp and fresh. The chicken came out still hott out off the frying pan which gave the salad even more character. The salad itself was so big that I couldn't finish it. Well, that and I also wanted the most epic dessert I have ever had, but we will get to that in a second. The thousand Island that I got on the salad made a very unique flavor when mixed with the Cajun, I enjoyed it very much.
Another very cool thing about The Great Lost Bear is that they have more than 60 beers on tap. This makes it Ideal for college kids who just want to drink for cheap.
I have decided to post whats currently on tap for you too look at..0
Now, let's talk about the best part of The Great Lost Bear. Yes they have an amazing setting, great food, wonderful service and a phenomenal beer selection. But none of that is why I would go back. No. The Dessert is where it's at. We aren't generally dessert people when we go out to eat, but this one Item caught my eye and it was a must have.
CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH CARAMEL SAUCE, ICE CREAM AND WHIPPED CREAM....
IN A MASON JAR!!!!
It was literally to die for. Being baked in a mason jar gives in a nice fudgy texture. Add the ice cream, whipped cream and caramel sauce... you've go heaven in a jar. This is delicious little treat is the one reason I would go back to The Great Lost Bear. I don't care about the calories, the sugar or the carbs... it is amazing.
In fact, I think we will go there tomorrow.
The Great Lost Bear is really a great experience. They have so much to choose from that it will take a while to order.
You should go, even just for drinks and some cake in a jar.
So please, Enjoy The Great Lost Bear
