Portland – Pt. 2

Christmas Shopping is one of our favourites things to do together, we talk about it all year long. Going downtown getting a peppermint hot chocolate and wandering in the cold, it feels so festive! Since we knew we were going to be in Portland before Christmas we left some shopping to do here and I’m so glad we did because there was every shop we could need downtown, and no sales tax.. holla! 

We did some shopping down Burnside, where we went to West Elm, Anthropologie, Madewell, John Fleuvog – where David drooled over every pair of shoes, and Buffalo Exchange. After that we headed over to Washington St. Where we wandered Nordstrom, Nike, H&M, Forever 21, and some little boutiques. 

Up next… food! I had a list of restaurants that I wanted to hit while we were in town. First stop we went to Sizzle Pie – a pizza place – which had a variety of great pizza’s and beer. We went for dinner, and to be honest the atmosphere wasn’t exactly the “night out” vibe we were hoping for. You bus your table, seat yourself, line up for your food. Which is all great, but if I knew when to expect ahead of time I would have made it our lunch stop. For Breakfast we went to Stumptown in our Hotel and had coffees and bagels, the salt bagel was amazing!! Lunch was Lardo – this one we loved!! David had the best sandwich of his life; pork meatballs, pickled vegetables, and siracha mayo, and I had a huge and yummy kale salad + parm fries. We would definitely go back here next time. Right around the corner from Lardo is Blue Star Donuts  one of the many amazing doughnut shops of Portland. They had lots of creative flavours – we got blueberry + basli, Pear + Pinenut, and Maple + Bacon. They were all to die for! Of course we also did a few rounds of Voodoo Doughtnuts aswell, I have dreams about that froot loops doughnut.. mmmmm!
