I'm going to get straight to the good stuff from our weekend in Portland, Oregon. The food! There are some crazy amazing restaurants all over Portland and we basically ate (and shopped) our way through town. I love how artisanal and thoughtful the restaurants we tried were. The service was always so friendly and the prices incredibly reasonable - a 3-dollar-rating on Yelp meant the most expensive dish was about $15. Here are some of the delicious foods we ate, lengthy and complete list and links are below.
