The Spruce Goose was first warehoused in a big building on Lincoln Bl in Marina del Rey.  I didn't know it until they moved it to Long Beach.  I could have watched from my balcony as it was being moved. 
 
Now I'm waiting for the Shuttle to land here atop the 747.  I really, really want to get pictures of that.
 
Carry on....

    Day 2, Starts off with a Hotel Breakfast that's offered to the guests, we don't need to talk about this, it is, what it is. We stay here because its close to the Ocean, Mollie is a Bear to get up in the morning, so , having something at the Hotel keeps everyone happy. After everyone is up and moving, the gals want to shop at the Outlet Mall. This is my chance to drop them off and head North, going over the Astoria Bridge, heading to Washington

    To the town of:

    For a visit with our Roadfood member "ChefBuba" at his Food trailer

    I have talked to Craig on the phone many times. He worked for years down in California as a Chef. He did the off-site catering for the Movie studios in Hollywood. Craig has a lot of talent, worked with all kinds of menu items, and has opened a mobile food business in Seaview, Washington. Craig knows, I don't blow smoke just to make people feel good about what their doing in this business. This is a had business to survive in, you need to know what your doing, and serve good quality food, to be successful. I was with Craig at the trailer for about two hours. He asked me what I wanted to eat, my answer was, everything. If I'm going to do a review of his food operation, I can't do it with only tasting one food item. Nothing like one Chef critiquing another Chef. Craig took out the Pastrami, sliced off a few pieces and put them on the broiler to heat. The pastrami was juicy, smoky, tender and full of flavor. A customer walked up while I was trying the pastrami, I handed him a piece of Pastrami, told him, here, try this. Needless to say,he said I'll have the Pastrami Sub.
    The Pastrami has Provolone Cheese and pickles, on a warm crusty Amoroso Roll

    During this two hour time period, he is busy with customers. While they order different sandwiches, I get to taste all the different meats.
    The Cheese Steak is, thin sliced beef with sauteed mushrooms, caramelized onions and melted provolone cheese. This is a great, melt in your mouth cheese steak.

    Tell me this doesn't fit the bill for a killer sandwich

    During the off time I tried the fresh hand cut french fries, and the homemade onion rings. both are great, just another quality item coming out of Craigs kitchen. this is the breaded onion rings, crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.

    This is a fresh caught Tuna (Ahi) topped with fresh cut slaw, on a warm Amoroso roll. Craig had cut the Tuna into fillets and served as a lunch  sandwich special.

    The Italian Sub

    These are a few of the burgers he offers, The burgers are Ground Chuck, 83/17- 1/4 lb fresh ground and made to order on a char broiler. The burgers are second to none, the meat is seasoned with a char broiled taste, tender and juicy on the inside, these are great tasting burgers. Craig serves the Bacon Cheese burger with cheese, on a toasted bun topped with two onion rings, two slices of bacon, lettuce and pickles. His customers were ordering them, with a heaping order of hand cut fries,  the whole time I was there.
    This is the Dbl Ch Burger:

    a few more burgers:

    I had nothing bad to say, either I'm a push over or this guy knows his stuff. Like I said earlier, there is no fooling a Chef, if its not good, it's not good, the proof is in the pudding. Craig has a small menu, cooks everything to order. All of the food I tasted was high quality and cooked to perfection. Craig has a great business, interacts with his customers, and it shows me he knows his business well...........Thanks Craig, for the hospitality, it was a fun morning. You don't only talk the talk, you walk the walk....................... I wish you well ..................Bill
     
    Ok, what the heck am I thinking, two hours I'm stuffing my face. The girls are at the Outlet Mall with my Visa card, I better get the Hell out of here. I'll be back with some pictures of the Oregon Coast and some of the seafood this area has to offer.

      Bill, if you're still hungry (and in Astoria) after all those sandwiches (you did eat all of the, didn't you?) head over to...
      The Ship Inn
       
      http://www.shipinn-astoria.com/The_Ship_Inn.html
       
      It's right on the Columbia.  I had the best fried, beer battered halibut there that I've ever had.
       
      Down the street from there you can pick up some chunk of varied smoked fish.  Great to snack on while driving.

              Thank's for the review Bill......It was great to meet you finally, and glad that you had time to run across the river and chat for a couple hrs.
              We should definitely do the Portland food cart rally in April.
               
              mar52....I drive by The Ship Inn every week, never stopped.
               Outward appearances screams dark paneling, naugahyde booths, dirty carpet, and a menu stuck in 1973.
              I see that they have Cornish Pasty's, I will defiantly stop and give it a try regardless.

                Chefbuba, The only thing I've ever had there is the fried halibut AND, that was back in the '90s.
                 
                Your description sounds familiar.
                 
                Do you think serving fries on the side of something stuffed with potatoes is odd?

                  Chefbuba...  I missed the part about that trailer being yours.
                   
                  OUTSTANDING!
                   
                  If ever there I will have some sort of a fresh fish sandwich from our Chefbuba.

                    Fish isn't on the menu, but run as a special when the price is right....
                    Getting to know the right guys for fish (port is 2 miles away)

                      Bill, if you're still hungry (and in Astoria) after all those sandwiches (you did eat all of the, didn't you?) head over to...
                      The Ship Inn

                      http://www.shipinn-astoria.com/The_Ship_Inn.html

                      It's right on the Columbia.  I had the best fried, beer battered halibut there that I've ever had.

                      Down the street from there you can pick up some chunk of varied smoked fish.  Great to snack on while driving.



                      Mar, this place looks a bit to  British for me, I don't even eat their food in England. When we travel through London, I eat Indian or any other foods from Europe. I don't think it say's much for British food when their national dish is Chicken Tikka Masala. We will be taking Mollie through Europe next year, She is a great little traveler.
                      I have noticed the fish has gone up a lot in the last few years, the prices in the fish markets are crazy. Most of the fish and Chip places are $14 to $16 for Halibut. But imho there is nothing like a fresh piece of halibut, battered dipped, fried to a golden brown, with the sea air hitting you in the face.................Bill

                        Great report and excellent picture pnwchef.
                         
                        I find it interesting the Curbside Grill uses Amoroso rolls.  While the Philly rolls are top notch, I'd think they could find a local bakery to get rolls.  Or maybe Amoroso has a location out west.

                          Like you said, the Amaroso rolls are top notch. I tried to get a couple of local bakeries to duplicate something close, but the cost was out of line.

                          My broad liner delivers three days a week, so keeping a supply on hand is not a problem.
                          Bottom line, they are a good product and my customers like them.

                            Mollie, wants to go to the Aquarium, she has only been there about 15 times over the years. This is the birth place of Sealy, so it is a special place. I'm still trying to figure out why my birth place wasn't all that special when we traveled to from NYC to Boston last month. Mollie likes to feed the seals and tour the aquarium for an hour or two.

                            Lewis and Clark, I think they were the first ones to have Fish and Chips here.

                            Hanging Baskets are all over town.

                            Mollie, just because:

                            Pictures of the beach:


                            We stopped at Bell Buoy fish market, there is a small Fish and Chip place, owned by them, right next door. We have been coming here for about 4 years, they have the best Battered Halibut in the area.

                            Joyce and Mollie shared the 5 pc Halibut and Chips & cole slaw. They enjoyed the Halibut, the outside was crispy and the fish was nice and tender:

                            I had the Captains plate, it was a pc of Halibut, Cod, Salmon, two large shrimp,two oysters, and a Razor Clam, with fries and Cole Slaw for $16.95. This was great, the seafood was fresh, crispy, and cooked to perfection.

                            Mollie, said the fish was great, Sealy has always been a seafood lover. When we first came to Blue Buoy, The girl who works here, was about to have her baby 4 yrs ago. Shes a Great gal, does a great job. This is a Family owned business, the owners, Jon and Terry and great people, no reason to look any place else for great Fish and Chips, They serve the freshest seafood in town. They also make their own Tartar sauce and Cocktail sauce. They also have the Razor Clam commercial rights for this part of the coast.

                            Back to the Hotel, it has been a cool day, Mollie is ready for a swim, Papa is ready for the hot tub, Life is good. I leave you with a sunset at Seaside, hoping your day was as good as ours.
                            We will be back tomorrow, for our last day on the Oregon Coast.

                              Fantastic report and pics! I'm actually heading out to PDX tomorrow to get my daughter. She graduated from Lewis&Clark in May and has been working all summer. I'm bringing her back to WI and she leaves for a teaching job in Spain in October.
                                  We always hit Pine State and I always get the Reggie! She lives right across from Pok Pok and we will eat there again as well. We also like Toro Bravo and we love this Cuban place.

                              and of course all the great food carts! Heading back here through Sun Valley, ID, Jackson Hole and the Tetons, Yellowstone, Livingston, MT, Beartooth Highway, Red Lodge, MT, Little Big Horn Battlefield and home. Thanks for the great report!

                                  Hey Chef, I would love to follow in your footsteps.  Great report and pictures(did you hire Chewy to take the pics for you?)  No wineries?  A lot of fantastic vino in that area.
                                   
                                  Nice review of ChefBuba.  Chef, you food looks awesome!

                                      This is the last day on the coast, Mollie's last Hurrah before school starts. It's a beautiful day on the coast, sunshine and warm temps. Joyce and I get breakfast early, Mollie drags out of bed around 9AM. We get Mollie moving fast, get to the beach early, while doing a bit of window shopping on the way. Window shopping with Mollie is like, Papa look at this, Papa come here, Papa, Papa, can't you just once look. We haven't eaten for about an hour, so everyone is starving, no way would this family make it in a Third world country. We walk by
                                      Joyce and Mollie yell "they have maple bars"

                                      They are both sucking down maple bars and I'm looking. and looking, GGGEEEZZZZZZZZZ everything looks great.So I pick out a

                                      How could anything with Cinnamon and sugar be bad, I would eat my sneaker if it had Cinnamon & sugar on it.
                                      This bakery makes real good donuts, While I was paying I noticed they also have Danish pastries on the side counter. This is a nice clean bakery, the gal behind the counter was real nice, although she looked at me kind of strange when I took a picture of the donut, I get this look a lot.
                                      After a walk on the beach, the girls still had a few things they wanted at the Outlet Mall, I still have a few dollars left on my Visa card. We always pick one day on the coast to buy some Sushi, Dungeness Crab legs and Sourdough bread to have for lunch. This is the Tuna Sushi from a Sushi Take out place at the mall. The Tuna is real fresh and the Shrimp Sushi is loved my Mollie and Joyce.

                                      We went back to Bell Buoy, this time to the Fish market side. This is what most people buy. They would sit on the beach, crack the crab and suck out the tender pieces of succulent tender pieces of pure white goodness. Sounds a bit Romantic, doesn't it !!!

                                      This is what Lazy asses like me do:

                                      This is what $40 worth of Crab legs look like:


                                      and a loaf of Sourdough bread.

                                      The Crab legs with a squeeze of fresh lemon dipped in homemade cocktail sauce was to die for. The Sushi was good and fresh, while we dipped them into a wasabi shoyu  dipping sauce.
                                      We, are now headed over to Cannon beach, this is a small town about 10 miles from Seaside. I figured the girls would like the small upscale shops this town offers. This is a fun town, we use to stay here, but, Seaside offers more entertainment for Mollie. This is more of an older crowd, with most of the shopping catering to them. I did find a Taffy making store that Mollie and I watched through the window as they pulled the taffy through the machine.

                                      His shirt says to "Keep calm and Candy on: so we did , we went and got some Tillamook ice cream. I like my fillings where they are.

                                      Mollie yelled, Papa I'll be in here, Go figure .........

                                      Cannon Beach is a real pretty town and beach, these are a few stock pictures, and some I took of the beach and town.




                                      Had to stop for a slice.......

                                      This day was filled with touring around the area, enjoying the views, just letting Mollie have some fun shopping and spending some time walking on the beach.
                                      This is the last day at on the Coast, we are headed back Through Portland tomorrow morning. Mollie will be at the Arcade later on tonight trying to win a thousand tickets. This is a long post, I promise...

                                        I love Cannon Beach.  I owned the southwest corner of Hemlock and Susitna before selling it to buy my business. (South of town that I now hear has become a tourist trap)
                                         
                                        Had dreams of building a home there. If I walked to the corner I could "then" see Haystack.
                                         
                                        If the ice cream shop is still in town they have wonderful berry ice cream in the summer and even peppermint candy ice cream.  Peppermint makes a wonderful hot fudge sundae.
                                         
                                        See any Puffins?  I think Sealy might need a Puffin friend.

                                            The crab is very good right now. I got some last week, the legs were plump, juicy and sweet.
                                            I'm a poor man though. I had to crack my own.

                                                    Blackberry, if I remember correctly.  Nasty stickers in them.
                                                     
                                                    I thoroughly enjoyed your report, Bill.  Well done!

                                                      Mar, I wish you kept the property and built a 5 bedroom beach cottage, I would have liked spending my summers at the beach. I looked at property in that area a few years back, I think I would go a bit more South, the tourist's are cramming into Cannon beach, there is only so much room.
                                                      I always check the prices of fish while I'm on the coast, , it drives me crazy that between Seattle ( Pikes Market ) the prices are nuts, Salmon $25 to $30 a lb, Halibut, and Cod sky high. The Salmon here is $19.95, I for got what the Cod and Halibut is, maybe Chefbuba can shed some light on how much the retail prices are now. I never pay more than $10 lb for any fish, I wait for the Copper River run, I feel the taste and Quality of that salmon is great. I wait a few weeks after the run starts, then buy it for $8 lb. Craig what is the price of Halibut, Cod or even Tuna in your area ??????????

                                                            The names of the rigs are as interesting as the food!
                                                            My two favorites--- Shut Up and Eat & Dump Truck!  
                                                            In the pictures of Shut Up And Eat, there's a rig beside him that's called "The Knuckle Sandwich"! That one makes the list too!! 
                                                            The lady working in the Dump Truck is a Cutee!!!
