Okay. I took a break from the Portland posts, but I still have a few more left. I could just skip it, but I LOVE looking back through my blog and reliving all of our adventures. So, I'm going to power through the Portland posts and finish them up today.
My main objective when we went to Portland was to try as much food as possible... that kind of seems to be my main objective in life actually...
I'd like to say that we had the best food EVER while we were there... but we didn't. Boooo! Our hopes were really high for some stellar cuisine, and most of it just didn't live up to our expectations. It was really pretty though so I'll share some of our food pictures!
(rhubarb upside down cake at Ken's Artisan Bakery)
(cioppino at Lucy's Table... this was our most awkward dining experience. We were the ONLY diners in the restaurant, and I swear our waitress spent the entire time coming onto Levi. Awkward!!!)
(mini cupcakes at Cupcake Jones - cranberry white chocolate vanilla, pumpkin pie, and gingerbread... the gingerbread was the best.)
(margherita and arugula pizza at Ken's Artisan Pizza. This place was pretty good, but Bottega Louie is sooooo much better that it was difficult to be impressed. They did, however, have one of the best desserts I've ever had. In my life.)
THE BEST THING I ATE IN PORTLAND:
(rhubarb crisp with strawberry gelato at Ken's Artisan Pizza. Oh my gosh, so good. Can you believe I had NEVER had rhubarb before this???! I've been missing out for so long. It's perfect! I love the tartness. Mmmm. I want another right now.)
So that was our lackluster food tour of Portland. Next time we go, I'm sure we'll find some better food... or we'll just eat at La Provence every day...
P.S. I had ice cream at Ruby Jewel Scoop Shop that was really good too! We REALLY need a gourmet ice cream parlor in Long Beach. If you ever visit Portland and you like ice cream, make sure to look them up! You can also buy their ice cream sandwiches at stores across the country. I think a store in Long Beach even carries them! I need to look it up...
