Ashland, Or's Pangea Restaurant

A few weeks ago, my husband and I slipped away for a few days by ourselves to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. We spent a few days in what is quickly becoming our favorite little getaway: Ashland, Or. Small, pedestrian friendly, and culturally savy, we love the atmosphere of small town and still so much going on.

During this last visit, we popped into a little restaurant in the middle of downtown that we had visited previously once before. Pangea is located on E. Main Street and can be easy to miss if you're not familiar with the location. Just a little hole in the wall, it serves one of the best and most varied menus I've come across. Everything we've had is good there.

Focusing on "Hormone-free, Range Meats; Seasonally Organic and Locally Grown Foods; and Exotic, Global Ingredients," the flavors are as unique as Ashland itself. While I've never been a sold out organic enthusist, I am happy to experience the richness of flavor and nutritents that it affords. And this menu is a feast for the senses.

On this most recent trip, I ordered the Free-Range Buffalo Burger Chili. The soup of the day, this chili had a warmth of flavor that was rich and smooth at the same time. Filling, hearty, and yet not heavy, a bowl was well affordable at $5.

My husband ordered the Ethiopian Spiced Chicken Wrap. Again the flavors were warm without being spicy hot. There was a spicy that just exploded in your mouth, but never lingered to burn. I'm very picky about how chicken is cooked and often leary of ordering it in restaurants. But this was incredible.

The menu is constantly changing, adapting to an ever evolving taste of an eclectic town. Check them out. You won't regret it.
