And it continues…
Wolf & Bear’s is Portland’s take on Middle Eastern food. People rave about their falafel, but I was cheap and got the “roadside snack” plate with eggplant and mushrooms.
Fresh frilled eggplant and mushrooms served with a very generous amount of house-made hummus and a yummy yogurt sauce. It was simple but all the elements were perfect.
The celebratory #lesshomeless beer outing. We went to Harverster Brewing Gastropub (apparently changing their name to “Ground Breaker”), the first dedicated gluten-free brewery in the U.S. Louise said it was the best GF beer she has ever had and I just thought it was good beer. They had this cucumber basil beer that I really liked, Louise loved the I.P.A #3. Not only do they have awesome GF beer, but also a pretty impressive food menu. Next time I’ll be ordering the ‘house made sourdough cornbread, braised collard greens, pepper jelly, warm honey butter’….Among other things.
Followed by a celebratory sushi dinner at Bamboo Sushi — the first certified, sustainable sushi restaurant in the WORLD. Louise’s ‘chirashi’ — assorted sashimi on a bowl of rice. So fresh and so clean.
This sandwich changed my whole outlook on PBJ sangs. I mean, this was THE BEST grilled sandwich I have ever tasted. Fresh nutty peanut butter, spicy sriracha, slightly sweet orange marmalade, a lil curry powder kick and fresh basil grilled between two pieces of crispy local Challah bread……………….It took every ounce of self-control not to order another one.
We had a late dinner and found ourselves in a pickle because most of the food trucks were closed, so we went back tot he old reliable Enat Kitchen. This time I got the Firfir — pieces of injera stewed with spices, lentils, peas, onions and olive oil. More injera please! Addicted to Ethiopian food.
