The Unassuming Restaurant In Portland That Serves The Best Chicken Sandwich You'll Ever Taste
If you want the best chicken sandwich in town, you will have to head over the cozy NE Basilisk to get it. The sky-high sandwich is taller than your average sandwich, and it is loaded with crispy chicken fried to perfection, a perfectly balanced slaw that will make your mouth water, and pickles.
The sandwich is so epic that it is causing a Chicken Eclipse.
Coupled with a tangy and slightly spicy slaw that really sets the whole thing off, this is one sandwich you are going to want to try again and again.
It is so stacked with crispy delicious chicken that it even dwarfs the dinosaurs.

If you visit soon, you might even get to catch a nice sunny day on the patio.
There is plenty of space to stretch out and the atmosphere is casual and fun.
If sandwiches aren't your thing (the buttery roll is divine though!), you can make your meal a little healthier by ordering the chicken on a salad.
You can find this gem of a chicken spot located along Sandy Boulevard in The Zipper, a relatively new retail development featuring several restaurants.
If you are driving by on Sandy, you may recognize it better from its street-facing side.
Next time you are in NE and feeling like chicken, check out this wonderfully stacked sandwich for a real treat.
When you are done, be sure to try one of the rotating flavors of Kool-Aid soft serve they have prepared. Subtly sweet and reminiscent of childhood, the soft serve will finish your meal perfectly.
Basilisk is located at 820 NE 27th Ave and is open Monday through Sunday from 11 am to 10 pm.
