Portland Weekend: Gluttony...

On the way to Portland, went the wrong way 5 times... I guess the late nights watching TV is catching up on me.  But 4 hours later, we arrive!

First time really spending time in Portland, we joined our fellow ex-East Coast lites for a late dinner at Ox.  We overestimated ourselves and ordered wayyyy too much food.  They had a couple interesting dishes.  The octopus was my favorite!

The next day we ate at a pop up with a few transplanted locals and then toured the rose garden that had 3 roses...
...while the rose garden was nothing to call home about, it was a nice walk around the park, given this is the first weekend of good weather this year!

For dinner, we ate at Tusk.  All of us had the Magic Carpet, and we were able to basically try out every dish on the menu!  Needless to say I was super full.

On Sunday, after a late wake up.  We detoured for some chicken and rice before heading towards Cannon Beach.  That hit the spot!  The Ho Nam Chicken Rice from Nong's Khao Man Gai was exactly what we needed after a weekend of non Asian food :P.

Making a pit stop in Astoria, had a flight of Rogue IPAs (and some chicken wings)

Getting to Cannon Beach in the evening, we stayed at an Air BnB that had a stunning view of the famous rock (Haystack Rock).  The place was a couple minutes walk to the beach, and from the living room, because the house is above the beach, there was an unobstructed view to see the rock and the beach.  The only bad part here was that we were only staying here one night!

Some views from the house:

For dinner, we cooked at the Air BnB, making the salmon and the 3 crabs we bought in Astoria.

Gluttonous Mson out!
