Let’s start with another side note: I’m going to Seattle and Portland this week!!! Probably gonna eat all this stuff again if there’s time. I really drew out these Portland, posts, eh? But it’s just my favorite city I’ve ever been to so far in my 30 years of life so…
Salt & Straw‘s ice cream is a dream. And look at those sprinkles?! They aren’t your average joe spranks. I got both chocolate AND rainbow. I might’ve gotten chocolate brownie ice cream AND cinnamon snickerdoodle. I might’ve eaten that entire femur-sized cone.
Pip’s Original Doughnuts and Chai is a dream. These donuts are fried to order. That’s what ya want. Nutella, raw honey and sea salt, rose jelly?! Also I might’ve gotten a ginger molasses latte and then the next time I got a raw honey latte. I can’t wait to go back.
Robo Taco put me over the top. We started with guacamole and each ate 3 tacos and I was full for years or hours or awhile, like whoa. Then we went to a meat and greet with bloggers and well, I was wearing a mesh tank top and shiny black leggings… lotsa the ladies there were dressed up in maxi dresses and stuff. I felt ok about my outfit despite it, ya know. Gotta be myself, and if that means the bottom half of my tank top is see-thru then so be it!
Grassa not only looks cool, but the food and cocktails are super models. Cindy and I shared salad, pasta and artichokes. We just needed to try the most things ever. We also got to hang with Mary! Who is the kind of girl that you can meet yesterday and be texting besties the next day. I wanna tell her all my secrets!
Blue Star Donuts are what’s up. I ate this blackberry jelly filled donut with peanut butter dust out on the sidewalk in front of the donut shop. It was so good. Normally I’m anti-jelly donuts, but that’s because lots of them weird goo situations, and that sh*#’s not right.
Broder Nord is the place in this world that I got beet juice in a cocktail and I wasn’t even mad about it! See that lovely jewel of a drink?! I could drink 3 before 11am.
PaaDee is on the list for this weekend. See those little appetizer presents? See those vanilla bean freckles in my drink?! I also got this crispy chicken dish that I day dream about still.
Life of Pie Pizza is all “Hey, I put honey and peppers on pizza, don’t worry about it.” And I am not worried about it, but mostly I’m like WHOA, that is crazy and awesome and I wanna figure that magic out.
Olympia Provisions was my last meal before flying home. Cindy and I split a frankfurter and a giant sandwich with apples and blue cheese on it. Portland is what dreams are made of. Check out my hashtag #megaportland on Instagram for all the photos in one spot!
