I know this should have been posted last week, but I honestly forgot all about it.
We saw this sign and a lot (but not all of them had that koala sticker on the head). I think they should post these signs in San Francisco, too.
One of the first places we went to was Moonstruck Chocolate Company. Their chocolates were good, but some were just too sweet to want more.
Speaking of chocolate, we went to Stumptown Coffee, where we tried this hot chocolate, and of course, their coffee. It was as good as the small local (in SF) coffee shops such as Blue Bottle or Four Barrel.
We also went to Roscoe’s, and tried the stouts they had on tap that week. Mike got the taster pictured, and I got the double chocolate. (Yes, more chocolate. Note: this was not all in one day.)
It was Purim while we were in Portland, so eating a hamentashen was required. (Though we probably would’ve gotten one anyway.) This was from Kenny and Zuke’s Deli. We also ate their matzo ball soup and latkes; all was good.If you are following my Facebook feed, you might have seen this picture already. It is of the tea I got at breakfast at Songbird Cafe one day. I liked the way the tea bag was floating in the mug; so pretty! Other Portland places of note that we went to: (a list can be found on my Foursquare)
- Pok Pok (Thai restaurant)
- Oregon Zoo (baby elephant!)
- Pine State Biscuits (small place, good for brunch, worth the wait)
- The Observatory (sweet cocktails, games, food)
- Tanuki (Sake bar, food)
- VooDoo Doughnut (long wait, go for the raised doughnut)
- Powell’s City of Books (go to the one downtown)
- Hanoi Kitchen (Vietnamese restaurant)
- Tea Zone and Camellia Lounge (LOTS of tea choices)
- Salt & Straw Ice Cream (try the olive oil, awesome mugs!)
And…that’s all for my Portland recap! It was really a fun trip and I can’t wait to go back!
