EATING OUT IN PORTLAND: SUMMER 2015

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. there really is no shortage of fresh food options in the pacific north west, this place is 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 one point i even had a moleskin food diary; with little side notes of what was ordered and what times they offered happy hour, what items i wanted to try next time, and what stood out about said written restaurant. yeah, i am pretty analog, but 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, and try to do it without embarrassing myself too much. :)

here's a taste of some of the amazing things i ate this summer of 2015
