Portland Trip 2017

Since there has been an excess of Stitch Fix posts and little else lately, I'd like to throw in a little travel post. My parents flew out last week and met us in Portland for a long weekend since they'd never been. The following is a photo dump of all (ok, most of) the delicious food we had.


These are a few excerpts from dinner at Accanto. The pasta was exquisite and the ricotta zeppole were the perfect ending to our first meal in Portland.



So many people talk about how good Blue Star donuts are, so we made it a point to try them. They are quite good, but nothing ever seems to compare to my local favorite - Sunrise Donuts in Redmond, WA.



One place we all really enjoyed that was a little different was Pine Street Market. It's kind of like a food court from a mall, but with good local eateries. We sampled from Trifecta Annex, Bless Your Heart Burgers, OP Wurst, Pollo Bravo, Kim Jong Smokehouse, and WizBangBar (from Salt & Straw). This was honestly the perfect place for a large lunch.



I don't think it's possible for me to go to Portland and not want to make a visit to Pine State Biscuits even though the line is super long. Jeff makes amazing biscuits here at home, but there's something about this that's just enough different that I can't pass it up. I love the Chatfield biscuit sandwich. You just can't go wrong with fried chicken, bacon, cheese, and apple butter. A first for this visit was the homemade pop tart. It was pumpkin flavored and absolutely delicious.


We tried Little Big Burger on a whim and it was pretty good. The burgers were actually a decent size and the amount of fries was insane. The only thing I didn't love was that the fries were truffle since I'm not crazy about that flavor. We followed it up with a trip to Pie Spot and holy cow... so many little pies to choose from! I loved that we could each choose our own. I was torn between pecan and banana cream, but ultimately chose banana. Jeff had lemon (of course). Mom and dad got chocolate peanut butter. Everyone was happy with their choice and these disappeared really quickly.


Our final memorable stop was Pip's Original. They have awesome little donuts and great chai. I'll definitely be back!

We've now headed back up to Seattle to eat even more goodies... surprise, surprise. Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We sure did!
