Tucked under the Morrison Bridge in Portland is a restaurant that boasts a handful of purple goldfish. It comes in at #226 in the Purple Goldfish Project.  Here are 3 of my favorites from Le Bistro Montage:

1. A signature dish in Spam and Mac. Macaroni & Cheese with your favorite mystery canned meat.  For a little lagniappe on the flavor . . . you can order it SPICY.
2. Oyster and Mussel Shooters – slimy fellas served in a shot glass with some cocktail sauce and horseradish. Once ordered – the waiter or waitress will immediately scream to the kitchen . . . OYSTER SHOOOOOTER
3. Your leftovers get wrapped up in tin foil. Move over balloon animal guy, the staff at the Bistro will WOW you with their animals. Check out this scorpion.

Today’s Lagniappe: Are you a believer in oysters?  Some say they are an aphrodisiac?  I personally don’t believe it.  Just last week I had a half dozen . . . and only four of them worked that night.
