Our Culinary Tour of Portland

Friday everyone else was busy so Logan and I headed out to discover a new lunch spot.  I had seen the Slow Bar featured on a blog I often read.  It was the picture of the hamburger that caught our attention.

Now that is a burger!!!  Logan couldn't wait to try it.

Logan sent Clark a photo of it through his phone.  Wishing you had been there Clark!!

Logan managed to eat the whole thing!
I opted for the much more ladylike pizzette.  It was yummy too!

It's hard to believe you could ever be hungry again after eating the Slow Burger but we were ready for dinner that evening.

We decided to go over to the eastside and check out the food cart pod on Hawthorne.  One of the food carts has been featured on food network and a few other places.
 We decided we needed to try something from about every food cart so we decided to share.

We had fresh cut fries from the Potato Champion with raspberry chiptole sauce and pesto mayo.

And then two types of pizza from Pyro Pizza.  They have a wood burning oven in their food cart!

And Tessa decided on a taste of Paris with a strawberry and cream cheese crepe served just like they do in Paris.

 It was all yummy but I think everyone's favorite was the Whiffie's Fried Pies.

.They reminded Logan of the empanadas he use to eat in Argentina except these were bigger.  We tried 3 different kinds.  BBQ beef and mozarella, marionberry and peanut butter fluff with chocolate chips.  They were all so good!!
Hard to believe we could still be hungry after all of that but we decided we needed to cool off with some gelato on such a hot summer evening so we headed over to Staccato Gelato.
  They have so many yummy flavors it was hard to choose.

Everyone managed to narrow it down to two flavors (they are small scoops)  I think almost everyone got orange creamsicle which was amazing.  We are still talking about it!  It was a lovely way to spend the evening.  Sitting outside, eating gelato!
Things just got more exciting from there.....
