Sundays in My Neck of the Woods

If you're in my neck of the woods and you're hankering for pizza, this is the place!
The name of the place is Portland Pie Company.  They have one location in Portland, one in Westbrook, and this one is in Scarborough in The Gateway shopping plaza near Cabela's.
The specialty is Pizza, but they also have appetizers, calzones, sandwiches, pasta, and desserts.
The atmosphere is casual and relaxed.  The lack of acoustic materials in the ceiling make for a boisterous sound level, but it's a great family restaurant.
There are two dining areas connected by archways in a brick wall, with a fireplace between the archways.  The second dining area has a full bar and a room full of elevated tables surrounded by bar stools.  And despite the wall decoration above the fireplace, venison was not a choice on the menu!
We started of with a mixed green half-salad.  The full salad must be huge, because the half was a generous serving containing various greens, red onions, mushrooms, cucumbers, tomatoes, and broccoli.
We followed the salad with an appetizer of honey-barbeque pork wings.  Yeah, pigs fly here in Maine.  The "wings" were approximately one incb cubes of pork ribs with the bone still in, with carrot sticks and ranch dressing on the side.  They were yummy; I definitely would order them again.   (Sorry the photo is a little blurry.)
                 
We chose the Old Orchard Pizza which came with roasted red peppers, green peppers, mushrooms, and artichoke hearts.  (We decided to skip the artichoke hearts, not being fans of artichoke in general and not wanting them polluting our pizza.  It was as good as it looks!  I had been craving pizza, as we've been trying to eat healthier and it had been weeks since we'd had any.  A little pepperoni and sausage would have been delicious, but we tried to be reasonably good.
I know where I'm going the next time the urge for pizza hits me!  Maybe I'll see you there?

Great pictures, Eva. I have this funny picture in my mind of you going out to dinner with a camera shooting pictures of everything! Sounds and looks really good, though, thanks for taking me along.

The pizza, and yes, even the salad look so delicious. I'm a big fan of pizza, so if I'm ever in Portland, I'm there.

Hugs and Mocha,

I LOVE me a good pizza.

Traci said...

My husband and I have talked of moving to Portland, ME for years. It is so beautiful there. Now that I know that there is a good slice, I have another argument for my cause. The salads look pretty awesome, as well.

Happy Sunday!

Flying pigs!!! I think they are endangered. I can't believe you ate some.

Eva Gallant said...

Jen: Maybe sometime you can come down here and we can go check it out!

Mary(writing): Yeah, I had never had them. Good stuff!

Looks yummy!

lisleman said...

At first I was wondering which Portland but then you mentioned Maine so now thats sorted out.
I agree with your taste in pizza.
Just wondering with your state's famous food item - do they have a lobster pizza?

Eva Gallant said...

lisleman: yes, there is such a thing as lobster pizza, but most Mainer's wouldn't order it. Lobster was meant to be boiled and served with melted butter, at the the very most, baked and stuffed. It would be a corruption of both the lobster and the pizza to combine them! lol

Erin said...

Oh that looks so yummy....I wasn't hungry until I saw that!!
