Prime Rib + Chocolate Cake

1200 NE Broadway Street
Happy Hour: 3 - 6 PM & 8 PM - close, Monday through Saturday
ALL DAY Happy Hour on Sundays

I'm a vegetarian. I have ZERO interest in the prime rib at this place. Chocolate cake, on the other hand. I'm all about chocolate cake. And any restaurant that offers discounted desserts on their happy hour menu deserves extra credit, in my opinion.

Prime Rib + Chocolate Cake has a pretty familiar feel. It's owned by Restaurants Unlimited. In Portland, that means Stanford's, Portland City Grill, Portland Seafood Company, and Henry's Tavern, but there are PLENTY of other familiar names (including Palomino & Kincaid's) from neighboring states. They've got a decent dinner menu and the prices aren't outrageous, but like so many others listed above, there really isn't much to eat if you don't eat meat. Besides cake, that is. And Chipotle Mac + Cheese. And a salad.

The Chipotle Mac + Cheese IS available on the happy hour menu as well as the dinner menu. They've got tiered pricing for happy hour, with items listed as low as $1.99. The most expensive--Wicked Shrimp, Beer Battered Prawns, a Classic Cheeseburger, or Prime Rib Tacos--are only $5.99. And the drinks are discounted too.

They offer beer, wine, and well drinks for pretty cheap. And they've got a list of four cocktails that are only $5 each. I knew that wine would pair better with my chocolate cake than a watermelon drop or a cranberry mojito, but that doesn't mean they weren't all just a little bit appealing.

Now about that cake. I love teeny tiny bundt cakes. I love chocolate. I love ooey-gooey centers. I love melty chocolatey ganache. I even love caramel sauce. And I love love LOVE freshly whipped, whipped cream. So yeah, the Warm Molten Chocolate Cake available on the happy hour menu for just $3.99 is going to get me back into Prime Rib + Chocolate Cake (despite their lack of vegetarian options) again and again and again.
