Why baristas + bites is a hidden gem of Portland

December 20, 2019

One of the things that I love most about Portland is the places that make it what it is. Sure, there’s no doubt that the hot restaurants that everyone wants to get into are fun, but you can’t go there every time you need a quick breakfast or lunch bite. And that’s where a place […]

The title of this blog post alone should say it all, but you probably know someone that quite literally, has it all. They have fine wine, every cookbook ever published, jams from Stonewall Kitchen and don’t seem to need anything. So, here’s an interesting gift idea: cheese.

If you love Portland, then you know that Harding Lee Smith’s The Rooms are an integral part of the food scene here. It’s undoubtedly impressive that they are all so incredibly successful, yet they are all completely different.

The Blue Spoon: Brunch Is Beautiful

February 25, 2014

Although all food is great, one of my favorite things on the planet…is brunch. A good brunch can be hard to find and it may  require some trial and error. Enter Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Silly’s: Zany & Tasty!

January 28, 2014

I know I’m not breaking any new ground here, but Silly’s in Portland is just too good not to talk about. As always, I will never be a fan of restaurants that are chains, and Silly’s seems to have that essential charm that’s necessary to be a restaurant that sticks around. As much as I […]

Salvage Barbecue

September 9, 2013

I am so full beyond belief with Barbecue as I write this. I went to Salvage for dinner Thursday night, and I am highly impressed. I’ve always been a Barbecue fan, and pulled pork is my favorite. It was disappointing when I found out that Barbecue isn’t a top priority in Portland, but not anymore! […]
