Portland has a little artsy edge to it. College right it the heart of town. Reminds me how I envision Seattle, Washington to be (whenever I get there - HA) but on a smaller scale. The food scene is pretty hip too. We found a super seafood joint called Eventide Oyster Co. this place has some Asian influence (fine with me!) and the Lobster roll is on a non-traditional butter steamed bun - Whhhhaaaattt!!! So flipping good - no words to express! Put on the top of the list - small joint so prepare to wait but DO IT!
Found a New Ramen House as well - Ramen Suzukiya
all freshly made - its a little cozy joint & Dish!Next just around corner from out hotel we came across the best hot and flipping' sour soup, dim sum & soup dumplings at Empire Chinese Kitchen - seriously the best we have ever had!
Then we took a day trip north to Bailey Island and went to Cooks Lobster this my friends was IT. They are commercial "lobstermen" - no fooling around no little tanks to gawk at - they just get them right outta the bay and steamed up a fat 2 1/2 lb lobster for us. Outta this world people! I found my home! HAHA.
|Mike & I at Cooks Lobster - this is the claw from the 2 1/2 beast!|
We headed back home happy & content. So glad I finally made it up north. Was just exactly what I expected and wanted. I think Boston is next on the list for sure for our East Coast Travels....
BTW - Doing a juice cleanse when I get home to recover from the gluttony and "re-set" my tummy digestion - I'm not used to eating like that...." So watch for some great healthy posts!
