The simplistic and timeless staple in American food, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, has reached metamorphosis, with all credit due to PBJ's Grilled on NW 23rd Ave. in Portland. They have sledgehammered the boxed in recipe of two parts spread between bread and, somehow, magically concocted exotic, unique, and gourmet grilled PB&Js.
Living up to the disclaimer on their ever-enticing menu board, 'warning: our sandwiches are highly addictive,' PBJ's Grilled has something and everything for anyone and everyone.
From savory to sweet, spicy to tart, and meaty to vegan, the always enchanting sandwich artists will, and with bull's eye precision, hand you off a sandwich just as stellar as their service.
PBJ's Grilled masterfully marries fresh and local ingredients to make their homemade nut butters and jams, which meet up with even more fresh and local ingredients to then be grilled to perfection with love, passion, and enthusiasm.
Exercise your Oregon pride with the appropriately named 'Oregonian.' Encompassing everything Oregon is famous for, the 'Oregonian' harmoniously combines marion berry jam, homemade hazelnut butter, and Rogue Creamery blue cheese to create this warm and toasty sweet and cheesy delight that will send you into dream sequence.
With expansion to the southeast underway and the anticipation to launch PBJ's burger and short rib sandwich, PBJ's Grilled is seemingly sparking a new era of American comfort food as we know it.
Whether you are a die hard PB&J fan or have forgotten to appreciate it, PBJ's Grilled will awaken your senses and bring you back and beyond to those blissful days of opening your favorite novelty lunchbox.
