I ate so much in Portland that I decided to dedicate a post to all the food I had…
Spanish anchovies with lemon aioli. This food cart was named Euro Trash– they had all sorts of stuff including escargot and foie gras.
Kalua pork slider. Very tasty, but kinda pricey at $3 for such a small bit of food.
Bibimbap burrito. I’ve had a lot of bibimbap and a lot of burritos but this was my first bibimbap burrito.
Took a break for some beer and speed scrabble at some pub. If this is how hipsters chillax, I think I wouldn’t mind being a hipster.
Appetizer at dinner time was a house made pate. It went pretty well with the pickled vegetables it came with.
Leg of lamb over gnocchi with peas. Gnocchi was roasted which gave it a nice bite.
Bacon wrapped corn dog. Apparently this cart won some best bacon challenge in 2011. They pretty much wrap everything in bacon.
Ethiopian sambusa. Tasted almost like Indian samosa.
Pork belly bao. I don’t think I’ve ever had pork belly that I didn’t like…
My first experience with foie gras and it was from a food truck… Pretty tasty, but very pricey. Now that I’ve had it, I’m disappointed that California has banned it…
My small attempt at being healthy. This cart had a huge line, and all they served was this bowl. It was pretty tasty and I think the fiber helped my digestion.
Bacon maple beer. Best idea ever. This beer replaces the seasonal cherry blossom beer in Washington DC as my favorite beer of all time. I don’t think it will ever be unseated. It was that good, far and away the best beer I’ve ever had in my life.
The Voodoo maple bacon doughnut that inspired the beer. It was good, but not spectacular. I was expecting it to blow me away like the beer did, but it didn’t. Maybe I was just too full by then too…
Things I’m thankful for:
- Portland food pods. They need to have these in Sacramento.
- The biking and walking friendly city of Portland. Allowed us to burn off a bit of the gluttony…
