pdx/sea, no. 5
lots of photos today … these are the last ones from portland. next up: seattle!
i also have a few ideas up my sleeve for some different (non-vacation) posts this week. depending on my work schedule, i hope to share them with you later in the week.
a few people emailed me asking for a list of places i ate in portland. i’ve shared a few photos of these places, but i do love lists (and talking about food), so here you go:
+ clyde common (lunch, dinner, and late-night eats. tops.)
+ kenny and zuke’s
+ the food carts in portland are amazing. my favorite: ziba’s pitas (photo above)
+ pok pok
+ laurelhurst market (stephanie gave me the heads up about this place, so my friend tripp and i went here for dinner. it was excellent. he said it was one of the top two burgers he’s ever eaten. my steak frites were delicious. it’s a great space – a butcher/meat market during the day, and a restaurant at night. go here!)
+ pearl bakery (i had the chocolate bouchon based on molly’s recommendation, and the gibassier based on youngna’s recommendation. both were amazing)
+ ken’s artisan bakery (the croissant!)
+ sahagun chocolates
+ bijou cafe (breakfast)
+ byways cafe (breakfast)
+ pine state biscuits
+ as for coffee: stumptown (of course) and another brand, courier coffee (you can get it at half and half cafe)
this list gives you an indication of how much i managed to eat over the course of my stay in portland. it was great!
see you tomorrow for some seattle pics. have a great day.
