Peanut butter and jelly share a synergetic relationship—a sacred bond that’s usually reserved for yins and yangs, Halls and Oates, and concrete ice rinks and sharpened skates. Enjoy delicious chemistry between magnificent duos with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gourmet grilled sandwiches at PBJ's. Find the cart near Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center every Wednesday–Sunday, 11 a.m.–5 p.m.
Having ushered in a chariot of peanut-butter creations one year ago, Keena and Shane provide Portland with a cornucopia of PBJ combinations in their sandwich cart. Using their own special recipe for peanut and almond butter and harvesting the rest of their ingredients locally, these savvy spreaders introduce their gooey specialty to exotic ingredients such as jalapeño, blue cheese, and apple-wood-smoked bacon, proving the idiom that peanut butter is thicker than water.
Browse melty breakfast delights such as the Good Morning with blueberry jam, smoked bacon, and maple syrup atop a creamy carpet of peanut on challah bread french toast ($6) or the Wildflower, which simply stacks peach jam, wildflower honey, and the ubiquitous legume on challah bread ($4). Savor the flames of the Hot Hood with black-cherry jam, bacon, and jalapeño ($5.50), or have a tropical dessert with The Joy, three of PBJ's handmade spreads united in a candy-bar-borrowing recipe of dark chocolate, coconut, and rich almond butter ($5.50).
