Word of Mouth Bistro
There are 2 things I really enjoy. Going to Word of Mouth in Salem and Sharing the love. Read on to find out exactly what I mean by “Sharing the Love”.
If you have never been to Word of Mouth here is something you should know. The lines get long and it’s totally worth the wait. TOTALLY worth the wait. I have waited, with a party of 6, for an hour, and every person in our party was completely wowed by the experience.
The owner, Becky, actually knows me now. I mean, I have written the place up numerous times and done a few giveaways. She also follows me on Facebook, so she knows all the places I eat. The day before heading back to Word of Mouth we had tried a new place, and it was a complete fail. It’s a place where you make your own pancakes. (Not sure why I thought that was a good idea.) Anyways, when she found out I was coming she made me a Vegemeatavitamin pancake. I think she was trying to help me get all the bad memories out of my head. It worked. This pancake is like carrot cake meets zucchini bread, grilled up with crispy edges. YUM! It might sound odd, but I think I actually liked it more than the Cinnamon Roll pancake and the Red Velvet pancake. This thing was good. Bad memories erased I was ready for my entree.
I almost always order Veggie patty Eggs Benedict. But the special of the day was a seafood mix Bennie. Why yes I will!! There was tons of shrimp and crab on this Bennie. It was truly outstanding. I have said it before and I will say it again, she makes a great Hollandaise sauce. That’s really key in a good Bennie. (The pic only shows 2 eggs because I shared with my daughter)
My husband was super excited about the Pork Carnitas burrito that was also being offered when we were there. This thing was ginormous. He was able to enjoy half of it before he raised the white flag of surrender and boxed the last of it up. My husband really tends towards these kinds of breakfast entrees. I did try it and it was very good with the big chunks of meat and great verde sauce on the outside. Another win.
I tend to base all my other breakfasts prices with that of Word of Mouth. The traditional Eggs Benedicts are $10.95 and it’s a 3 egg Eggs Bennedict that comes with fresh fruit or potatoes. All their meals are easily shareable unless you just want leftovers. There have been a few times that I actually finished my whole meal, but it’s so large I rarely do.
I do love this place, and I want to share the love, by giving you the opportunity to try it. Maybe you have been, maybe you haven’t. Either way I am giving away Breakfast for 2, which is 2 entrees and 2 drinks. (They have great coffee and tea!)
Maybe you are one of my Portland readers and you are thinking there is no way this place is worth the drive. I am telling you it is. If you don’t believe me, enter to win and try this place out for yourself, then we will talk. All you Salem readers…I’m just jealous your so close.
