I couldn't sleep last night so I decided to upload Portland photos. I still hope to finish Japan at some point. Thursday is me
Bee Local. Here's the brilliant idea: honey by neighborhood! Like Mt. Tabor honey. You can taste your neighborhood. Honey with terroir! His business is blowing up. This was actually a monocrop since he can barely keep up with the neighborhood orders. Buckwheat and it really intensely tastes like buckwheat.
We went to the new Broder, can't remember where. Scandinavian food but kind of better than any we got in Scandinavia. Snooty, I know. This is an all booze cocktail with aquavit and some other booze. They only have boozy aquavit cocktails. When in Rome..
I came home really down on Sac and want to move to Portland. Just being honest. Usually I say I couldn't stand the weather and that I would miss the ethnic diversity. The weather I think I could adjust to, plus I know I would visit Sac a lot. After eating that delicious Thai food I know I could get one of my favorite types of food whenever I want. And there is a whole neighborhood of ethnic stuff and who knows maybe some good Mexican. I ate wayyyy more good food in Portland than I did in Brooklyn. Brooklyn has menu writing skills, that's for sure, but I'm not sure about the follow through.
