In case it wasn’t already clear, Saint Honoré has Mendl’s signature dessert on special offer through the end of the month to celebrate the release of Grand Budapest Hotel! Les religieuses sont tellement adorables et délicieux! 

Living out my Wes Anderson / Parisian fantasies, aww yeahhh.

Made up an über delicious bowl of ramen this past weekend with tonkotsu broth, egg, green onion, meatballs, nori, and bok choy.
My ramen protips:- ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS cook the noodles and broth separately.- dunk your ramen in a cold water bath immediately after removing from heat to halt the cooking process.- toss in whatever veg and meat you want/have on hand; day old rotisserie chicken is great for this. - try mixing the egg into the soup for an egg flower soup-like consistency; do this approximately 1 minute before your broth is done so as to not overcook the egg.- add a small pat of butter to your creation and thank me later.

Seattle edition: The Pine Box* has the most buttery, pillowy, and delicious soft pretzel ever. Served with a spicy hefeweizen mustard, it’s the perfect accompaniment to your choice of draft beer from their extensive tap list. Snag one at happy hour (3-6, daily) for $3!
*a play on words as the pub was converted from an old funeral home!

Despite being a “Portland foodie,” I tend to avoid food carts at all costs and usually only make the effort to eat at a place once they have graduated to a brick and mortar location. Such was the case with Cuban joint El Cubo de Cuba.

Previously, my go-to Cuban spot was Pambiche. I do, however, appreciate ECDC’s casual dining experience and will definitely be back. We tried the mojo pork, ropa vieja, and the Cuban sandwich. The Cuban sandwich was as close as I have found in PDX to the ones in Tampa, FL, which I consider authentic. Most Portland joints don’t use the right bread, or use pork belly, or take similarly stupid “creative liberties.”

All entrées come with a side of your choice so I was also able to sample the tostones (fried crispy, savory plantains), maduros (fried ripe, sweet plantains), and sweet potato tots; they were all delish!

Loved: their cortaditos and the tagged walls from a surprising number of out-of-towners.

My tea time treat today was strawberry short [pound] cake with honey whipped Greek yoghurt! 🍓🍯

I just might fix myself a small plate for dessert too ; )

Boxer Ramen in Union Way may just win my pick for cutest little restaurant in Portland. I had the classic tonkotsu ramen which warmed me right up on a rainy day with its rich, tasty broth. It was a tad bit on the salty side, but nothing I couldn’t deal with. Portland, we need more ramen/noodle shops!
Beware: it’s cash only. They do have an ATM, though!

It’s not much of a looker, but this here is the JELLY DOUGHNUT YOGURT PANCAKE at Block’s. Yes, you read that correctly. 
The latkes were tasty and pretty standard; you shouldn’t really mess with the recipe for good latkes anyhow, but the house-made apple sauce was the real star of the dish.
Honestly, I don’t know why Block’s doesn’t have a line out the door. They have a great menu and a clean, charming Scandinavian-esque vibe about them. Not to mention a great patio that I’m going to be a regular on this summer. I’m also looking forward to stopping in on one of my lazy nights and picking up their to-go chicken pot pie with BISCUITS serving as the “crust”.

Happy hour at Eleni’s Philoxenia in the Pearl is definitely food-centric rather than maintaining a focus on drinks. We had the lamb pita, fried calamari, and soutzoukakia (meatballs). It’s always happy finding quality Greek food in Portland.

Supercharge your hump day, my lovelies!
Glyph Café & Arts Space in PNCA’s Arthouse dorm is my new favorite café/place to kill time in [downtown] Portland. 
The café is beautifully laid out and designed with comfortable seating and big tables suitable for groups. The couches pictured above are my favorite for relaxing and they are perfectly situated next to the ‘gallery’ area.
Besides keeping patrons fueled with caffeine, the café also offers a variety of pastries, lunch, and light small plates in the evening. What’s not to love?!

Brunch at Screendoor never disappoints. It’s *almost* worth braving the horrendous line. I have still yet to make it there for dinner service though :/

I am completely obsessed with the green tea smoothies at The Human Bean. Plus, all their baristas are super nice and they give you a chocolate covered coffee bean with every drink!
