Weekend Update - Portlandia!

Roamed around the city with G, G, and J, shopped a bunch at Woodburn, ate a lot more than I should... 

We had breakfast at Mother's Bistro on the first morning that we spent in Portland, and Stepping Stone Cafe (a diner similar to Jethros in Vancouver) for the second.  Mother's was amazing - the eggs benedict had one of the best hollandaise sauce I've ever had. Stepping Stone was sort of disappointing - it smelled in there and it was definitely more of a dive, the mancake (huge ass pancake) that I used $1.75 to substitute hashbrowns for was exactly what an average pancake tastes like, and the sausages were absolutely sodium filled. Typical American dive.

For dinner, we had Lebanese food on the 1st night.  It was my first time trying Lebanese, and it did not disappoint.  Por Que No? for tacos the 2nd night.  Words cannot describe how great these little meat filled flour wraps tasted.  Cheesecake Factory in Seattle on the way back for a late lunch/early dinner (linner). 

I love Portland.  The streets are beautiful, food is awesome, shopping is convenient, and the streets are made for bikers!  Can I move here please?
