    Portland! Great city, you will have a blast! I lived there for a while, and had many favorites. Here are a few:

    I highly recommend Seasons and Regions (www.seasonsandregions.com) for their tomato basil bisque, if nothing else. I dream about that soup, and I’m not even a big fan of tomato soup! Also, I love Pambiche (www.pambiche.com) for amazing Cuban food.

    For sweets, Salt & Straw (saltandstraw.com) has some amazing ice cream flavors — like pear w/blue cheese or honey balsamic strawberry w/black pepper! And, of course, Voodoo Doughnuts and their maple bacon bar are a MUST.

    So much to see, do, and eat — I can’t wait to see your posts from PDX!

      Hi Kate! Thanks so much for the suggestions! I will definitely check all of that out. That ice cream place sounds very unique – hopefully they will be open in the winter ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. it was great fun meeting up with you guys. I liked your fried ball things (I don’t know why they even call them cakes) especially since they had chocolate chips inside. as for the fusion lumpia, i agree. all that crap on top was just too much. i can see what they’re trying to do with the fusion, so kudos to them, but i prefer to eat my lumpia unadorned except with sweet and sour sauce. the dudes who work here are pretty nice too. very chill folks here.

      Yeah, no idea why they call them crispy cakes either. They’re totally donuts! But that’s okay, whatever you want to call them they still tasted pretty darn good. I appreciate their attempts at fusion lumpia, too, but please. No stuff on my lumpia!
