Eating & Drinking our Way through Portland

To celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary, the husband and I took a quick trip to Portland. We had always wanted to visit and had never been until now. What a fun city, filled with some of the nicest people I have ever met! I thought it would be fun to share a few of the food and drink highlights of our trip!


One of our culinary highlights was brunch at Tasty and Alder. Everyone we met in town told us we must eat there, and it did not disappoint. I will be dreaming of the Bim Bop Bacon and Eggs for a long time. There are tons of breweries in the Pearl District, but Deschutes was our favorite. Hop Henge was an amazing beer and the steamed clams are a must.


Our dinner at Little Bird was such a memorable one. Think craft cocktails and luxurious foods like oysters, fois gras and cheese plates…pretty much my dream come true. Last but not least is Andina. We ate tapas style here, and the octopus was some of the best octopus I have ever had. The ceviche and the empanadas were also outstanding. I can’t wait to go back to this food and drink mecca!!
