My love affair with meat, cheese, and tortillas has never been stronger!- Los Gorditos (Portland, Mexican)

Quite a fitting name. A “groundbreaking” experience drinking a beer sampler! – Ground Breaker Brewing (Portland, Gluten-Free, Gastropub)

When I am back home in Portland I tend to eat out a lot in an effort to see my friends. Luckily my trips back to Portland have been longer so I don’t have to pack so many meals into a shorter trip. There were some Portland trips after I moved to Miami where I […]
