Despite this week’s work trip to Portland not being my first, I have never taken a photo of its iconic sign before. I love it and I get to see it every morning as I walk to work over the bridge. Spring is a great time to visit Portland, Oregon, the sun is actually out!
After work, I headed to my hotel to drop my bags and head to dinner with colleagues and friends. I just thought my bed at Jupiter NEXT was too cute not to take a photo.
We went to Palomar for happy hour, a fairly new Cuban bar and restaurant in Portland. I ordered the ‘Flip’ – madeira, brandy, rootbeer, whole egg. I carefully carried it upstairs to take its photo against this amazing wallpaper.
After drinks we headed to Shalom Y’all for dinner. Their hummus & pine nuts with fresh hot pita was to die for – so creamy!
The Albacore Tuna Skewer with grapefruit, potato, crispy shallot, cured lemon, smoked olive oil, and green chili yogurt was delicious! I’m glad my friends are adventurous about food or I would never get to try out all these places. What’s a type of cuisine you’ve been wanting to try out?
