Hello, hello from Portland the land of happy-internshipness.

I shall be stationed here for a few more weeks, making intermittent trips to the promised land (i.e. Eugene, i.e. Hipplyland).

Took my best friend who was in from LA. She enjoyed the food and said her lemon drop was quite tasty as well.

And thus, while I will try and get a few more reviews up and other such Eugene-articles, we shall take a vacation to the Portland food scene together.

My trips here have been limited, there’s this thing called rent that keeps eating my monies but here is what I have discovered so far*:

Mother’s Bistro and Bar:

A lovely little place in downtown Portland. The menu is limited but crafted with love and exudes hominess. A little spendy for those of us in college, but not too absurd. The service we had was pleasant but slow. Dinner’s include things like pot roast (superb, juicy, flavorful), chicken and dumplings, and mac n cheese. Take note vegans, there are options for you as well.

Dessert is a little expensive but not overpriced. I.e. It’s worth it. There are perhaps as many options as there are for dinner, or so it seemed, the online menu indicates 10 options. I could have swore there were more). Cocktails and a split piece of Devil’s Food Cake would make for a grand date.

You can’t see it but I had a fruit tart. It was fruity, if you catch my drift.

4.5/5 based on my one visit. Bonus points as the chef/owner hand-delivered our bill and stopped to chat as she seemed to do for many other tables.

Part II, on Bluehour, will follow shortly.

*if you’re confused by my selection, several eateries were picked because they were part of Portland Dining Month, a selection of restaurants that were serving three course meals for $25.
