Portland is by far one of my favorite cities, if only because of (what else!?) the incredible food scene. Prepare yourself for these pictures. Some are slightly horrific Diners Drive-ins and Dives style but so extremely neccesary to try!

Pine State Biscuits actually was on Diners Drive-In's and Dives, this is their Farmer's Market location. Notice the lineup! It's that good.

Biscuits and Sausage Gravy. Ahmazing. It's a good thing I haven't found a place in Vancouver that does a version I like or I'd be in serious trouble.

"The Reggie"-Fried Chicken, Bacon, Cheese, Fried Egg, Sausage Gravy sandwiched between a Buttermilk Biscuit.

"McIsley"-Fried Chicken, Pickles, Honey, Grainy Mustard sandwiched between a Buttermilk Biscuit. It's great to have friends that trust you when you tell them what they should try, that way you can steal a bite of theirs!

Beautiful greens

Incredible artichokes

Voodoo Doughnuts-Open 24hrs and crazy line-ups all the time.

Neccessary. I had the Maple Bacon, delish.

Cannele- Best when made in a copper cannele mold to give it that perfect carmelization with a chewy inside and crispy outside.

The Screen Door-Traditional Southern comfort food.

Hushpuppies with Sweet Red Pepper Sauce

Fried Chicken, Collard Greens, Mashed Potatoes and Tasso Ham Gravy.

Shrimp and Grits with Local Pork Belly and Cornbread with Honey Butter

I didn't even get a chance to touch the food carts! I'll be back.
