-Portland, Oregon with the girls-
At the end of December, Rach, Mon, and I took a little trip to Portland, where we ate our way through every district of the city, and braved the cold (as in near frost-bite) on a daily basis. I have to say, Portland definitely knows food, and thankfully we did enough walking to compensate for our indulgence. Here's a little peek into our daily food hopping adventures!
I. Every morning:
1)blackberry croissant 2) bread pudding 3) apple gallet
-ken's artisan bakery, northwest portland-
II. Lunch/other excuses to eat:
1) waffle window 2) bollywood theater indian
-spicy noodle curry from pok pok thai, veggie burger from melt, asian fusion from isabel's-
IV. The little gems:
-almond toffee, pear/brie, lavender, strawberry/balsamic vinegar ice cream at Salt& Straw, mexican hot chocolate at Bean&Tree, pumpkin spice chai tea at House of Chai-
Friends who can stop counting calories for four days and just enjoy eating in bliss are the best kind. The food scene in this city won me over, but looking back at these photos, I'll always associate our trip with cold fingers& too many layers, well dressed men, 12am chai, snowflakes in eyelashes, photo booth failures, crosswords & naughty nuns.
