Ezell's Famous Chicken
The Stranger's Bethany Jean Clement once wrote, "Oprah is no stranger to marijuana. Oprah has been known to have Ezell's fried chicken FedExed from Seattle directly to her mouth. Coincidence? Fried chicken offers the high person an unparalleled sensory experience: the crispy-salty-golden-brown coating, the lining of fatty skin just beneath, the juicy-hot-nourishing flesh. And Ezell's fried chicken is among the very best. But wait! Take a hunk of Ezell's chicken, embed it in one of Ezell's heavenly rolls, and dip it in Ezell's chicken gravy. A friend who is definitely no stranger to marijuana told me about this innovation in Ezell's-eating recently with the seriousness of someone who's discovered something very important in life. Go and try it. Someone tell Oprah!"

Fort St. George Add to a List
The Stranger's Kelly O recommended this beloved International District dive as one of the best places to eat while stoned in 2014, writing, "Why does a Japanese bar in the International District have 10 different varieties of spaghetti (served with a side of miso soup)? Because at some point, someone decided that JAPANESE VERSIONS OF AMERICAN FOODS—like hamburger steaks, casseroles, omelets, and cheesy-fries—WOULD BE DELICIOUS. They even claimed the spaghetti noodle, and the Fort, which bills itself as a 'Western Style Japanese Pub,' makes them in a bunch of crazy ways (such as 'meat sauce with garlic mayonnaise' and 'tarako and kimchee'). Try all 10."

Hot Cakes
If you haven't tried the chocolate molten cake emporium's warm, gooey treats while under the influence of cannabis, you haven't lived. The flavors and textures of desserts like smoky s'mores cake and dark decadence cake with caramel are enhanced even more by being high.
