EATING OUT IN PORTLAND: SUMMER 2015
If I haven't said it yet, I'll gladly announce it again; Portland's summers are the best!
From sunny al fresco brunch dates, happy hour's that land between errands, weekend trips to the many neighborhood's farmer's markets, to dressing up just to go beer tasting in town, the city of roses is one that offers so much to do, eat, drink and see. In Portland and the Pacific Northwest there really is no shortage of fresh food options making the place I call home culinary heaven!
Since the beginning of my life in Portland (just over 4 years ago now) I have photo logged just about everything I've eaten and drank in this awesome city. At the very beginning of my eating journey I maintained a little Moleskin food diary; with little side notes of what was ordered and what times places had offered their happy hour, what items I wanted to try next time, and what stood out about said restaurant. Yep, I a a little food nerd and also analog. This was all before I had discovered Yelp and other public forums for discovering and storing reviews and photos. With that all said, I still love capturing food photos but now I try to do it without embarrassing myself too much.
Below is a a little taste of some of the delicious finds I ate this summer 2015
