This is part of a series of posts about my vacation to Portland, Oregon, in late February 2013. Jump to all posts.
I’m back from Portland, and let’s just say it far surpassed my gastronomic expectations. I was impressed by the quality and originality of everything I ate and drank, and generally had a blast. We got to explore the majority of the city – mostly on foot, to burn off at least a few calories! – and also ventured to nearby scenic areas during the last two days.
And now, a quick numerical breakdown:
Full days spent in Portland: 4
Types of cuisine tried: 9
Local beers sampled: 29
Local wines sampled: 7
Donut varieties tasted: 4
Food carts visited: 4
Coffee beverages consumed: 8+
Sit-down meals enjoyed: 7
Sales tax paid: $0!!
Waterfalls seen: 3
Needless to say, I have a lot to talk about here on the blog.
- Coffee, donuts, and other indulgences
- Beer, wine, and cocktails
- Meals at Pok Pok and Grüner
- Meals at Beast and Toro Bravo
- Other best bites at Andina, Gravy, Cabezon, and more
Look for these posts throughout the next week. In the meantime, check out the slideshow below to see my Instagram photos from the trip.
