This afternoon, I visited Roy's BBQ in Columbia City. I have never been to Columbia City before and I was completely caught off guard as I entered this cute neighborhood on Ranier Avenue. While I was looking for parking, I explored the neighborhood and stopped in front of a house that had a border of tall sunflowers. How charming and unexpected! One evening a couple of years ago, I was offered drugs in front of an establishment on Ranier Avenue and, since then, I have avoided the area because I thought it was sketch. I gazed at the house and I really appreciated this sandwich saga for giving me an opportunity to revisit an old assumption. The Oyster Po' Boy sandwich itself was not as exciting as I had hoped but I should confess that I might be coming down with a cold. The coleslaw was not very special and the only innovative thing about the sandwich was the fact that it had barbecued oysters in it. I plan to revisit Columbia City soon and I'll probably revisit Roy's BBQ but I definitely plan to order something else.
I am one sandwich away from crossing the halfway point of my sandwich saga!
