Travelogue: Portland Eats

Portland! Land of delicious food. I just got back from a trip with Russell and some friends. I’ll be breaking up my travelogue into 3 sections: eats, shops, and sleep. Up first, our gluttonous adventure through this amazing city.

IMG_3226Lunch at the Pod 28 Food Truck lot. Usually there’s a beer bar, but a lot of the vendors were closed due to the rain. We got an Olea wrap with falafels from Wolf & Bear’s and a carnitas torta from Guero.IMG_3225 IMG_3224 IMG_3223 Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset IMG_3221 IMG_3218Dessert and tea at Roman Candle. Their cornmeal dried blueberry cookies were so good! IMG_3219 IMG_3220 IMG_3217IMG_3208Dinner at Ned Ludd, a fine example of local Northwest seasonal dining. Somehow I only managed to get a picture of a beer can, but it was a pretty spectacular can. I’m itching to replicate their oven-kissed cookie recipe.IMG_3207IMG_3066It’s not every day that you start with fried corndogs with powdered sugar for breakfast. This meal at Screen Door was completely over the top. I can see why they’re so popular. IMG_3068 IMG_3069IMG_3194Washing down the fried chicken with a nitro brew from Stumptown in the Ace Hotel.Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset IMG_3191After recovering from brunch, we decided it was time for dessert. This blackberry compote with peanut butter powder donut from Blue Star was sinfully good.IMG_3107 IMG_3186Dinner at Kachka was a true Russian treat. I would’ve never thought to eat pig back fat with honey, garlic and pickles. But it was pretty damn tasty.  PicMonkey Collage IMG_3179 IMG_3242Brunch at Sweedeedee, a cute hipster’s paradise. Breakfast salads are the new hottest thing, you heard it here first.IMG_3236 IMG_3237 IMG_3235IMG_3176Lunch at Pok Pok was probably my favorite meal of the trip, but also unfortunately the one that most likely gave our group food poisoning. Three out of four us got pretty sick after this last meal in Portland. But I’d most definitely go back anyways.Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset IMG_3174And a final dessert from Salt & Straw. The smell of the waffle cones was too much to resist. I got a scoop of the Strawberry Balsamic with Black Pepper and a scoop of the Cinnamon Snickerdoodle. Baby Satski and I clearly had a good time with lots of new flavors. I hope this baby enjoys food as much as his mom and pops.  IMG_3149 Maybe it wasn’t food poisoning as much as punishment for eating so much and so well this weekend.

    • We were on our way to pine street biscuits when our friend who works at screen door invited us to come jump the long wait with him and promised us that their biscuits were better. We’ll have to try it next time!

  1. This list is all I’ll need next time I head down to PDX! I’m only a couple hours away, yet I’ve never eaten at any of these places! Thanks! Sorry about the food poisoning – especially un-fun when you’re pregnant.
