I've seen some other postings about restaurants (feel free to add your suggestions of those too), but I didn't see much about favorite food carts and wineries in the Portland area. I'm going in March for the first time and am super excited. Any suggestions you could provide would be most appreciated!
A friend of mine was recovering from surgery on his hip, and fell off his crutches, and had to have surgery on both hands. Any ideas of stuff that is SUPER easy to eat? I'm thinking casseroles, but am wondering if you guys have any ideas or experience with this. Thanks!
I'm having some friends over for a pool party and am trying to think of foods we can munch on before I fire up the grill. Looking for stuff that is easy to make, and can handle sitting outside for a while. I've got the usual chips and salsa and dip, but am looking for something a little more creative.
I've suddenly got a craving for one. Where is your favorite spot to get a non-meat burger?
I'm wondering where people love to go that are unexpectedly BYO. I say no to Thai because there are so many, and I already have a few I love. I think it would be easier to name Thai places that are not BYOB.
Off the top of my head I can think of Caro Mio, Mythos Greek Taverna, and Indie Burger. Any other hidden BYOB gems I should know about?
I consider myself a pretty decent cook, but haven't really been a fan of Indian food until recently. A friend of mine wants to cook Indian food this weekend, and I have no idea what a good "newbie" dish would be. Any ideas/tips would be much appreciated!
I'm going to be there in a couple of weeks on a work trip and am wondering if there are any must visit places for BBQ. Delicious sides are just as important to me as the BBQ meat/sauce itself. Thanks!
I'm becoming a big fan of wine on tap and want to support places that are carrying it. I think it's a cool concept and wine is cheaper by the glass generally. I found one at Volo and then last night at Lula. It was a rose and a sauv blanc respectively. Anyone else had any around town that they've found and liked?
I'm not a huge whiskey drinker, but I went to Koval Distillery in Chicago, and they had this really interesting and tasty white whiskey made from oats. I really liked it, so I bought a bottle. I can definitely drink it on the rocks, but was hoping someone out there had some ideas of cocktails I could make that might highlight its flavors. Similar to how Hendrick's gin is great with some soda and a slice of cucumber. Thanks!
I recently got back from a fantastic trip to California, and of course did a bunch of wineries and all that, but until this trip I always thought of wine making as more of an art. I realized there's a lot of science behind it too, and being an engineer by trade, got pretty geeked out about that. Does anyone know of any beginner books that talk about viticulture and/or enology? I'm not planning on starting a vineyard or anything, but think it would be cool to learn more about the science behind growing grapes and making wine.
A friend and I were having a debate about whether or not it is ok to use the heel of the bread for sandwiches. I say it's ok, and he is firmly against it. I also think that the heel of more artisanal type breads is quite tasty as well on its own, and he disagrees there as well. We were curious what the majority thinks.
