24 Hours in Portland - What We Ate

Birds Eye View of Portland, OR

We traveled a lot during the first week of April. We went to San Francisco and Los Angeles. Arrived home on Tuesday. Left for the west coast again on Friday. This time we were going to Portland and then up to Seattle.

We went to Portland so I could go to the Indulge Conference. It is an awesome conference for bloggers. We arrived just in time for me to go to the welcome party. The conference was all day Saturday, but we were able to squeeze in a lot of eating! I was with food bloggers, so we know how to get it done!
24 hours in Portland Oregon - what to eat! We didn't have a lot of time, but we packed in some AMAZING food! Life changing sandwiches, desserts and a fun time exploring the food cart parks!!


The Original Dinerant

The welcome party was held near the hotel at The Original. It is a fancy schmancy diner.
I went upstairs to the party while Chicken Legs tried a couple of local beers.
After the party, Chicken Legs and I ate dinner. It had been a long travel day, and we were starving!

The atmosphere at Tilt was super laid back. 
The restaurant was in a warehouse type building. They open the doors and everybody is kind of indoor/outdoor seating. They have seats that are completely outside. It was super crowded when we were there. We were lucky to snag a table for all 8 of us!

I wish we had more than 24 hours in Portland.

Chicken Legs drove us up the road to Seattle. 
Stay tuned to hear about our Seattle trip. Spoiler alert - we LOVED it!!!
