It’s time to eat in Portland! Being a celiac it’s sometimes hard to find the perfect dive bar with good food. The White Owl Social Club is just that – gluten free friendly. Looking for something a little more refined? We visited one of Portland’s top dining spots – Imperial. Both experience wont’ be forgotten. Let’s eat!

The White Owl Social Club opens at 3pm and we visited on a Friday afternoon – great way to end the week.

Large tables for friendly gathers and the dance floor is big if you visit late.

The food. I had the gluten free friendly fried chicken burger and Bryce had the White Owl burger. The special sauce? So good.

Time for a little casual fine dining. If you’re wanting to check out Imperial, then I suggest making a reservation. The food was fantastic and full of rustic flavour.

Flat bread and roasted beets with goat cheese and pistachios.

Our mains – we both had the feature. Wood fire roasted loin and chili marinated sea bass. I ate every bite.

Overall, Portland has some of the best eats and I only wish we had more time to check them all out. Thanks for visiting and happy travelling.

Travel: Portland Market

Portland Market: 3ten.ca

The Portland Market, well the Saturday Market. It’s open on Saturdays from March until the end of December. We left Portland, Oregon on Saturday morning and this was our last stop before heading home.

Perhaps I’ve been spoiled in the market area, yet this market wasn’t too exciting. We expected a lot of local grown fruit, vegetables and local eats. There were only a few food vendors and I couldn’t find a single tent selling local grown food. Odd.

The arts and crafts, however, were quite something.

A lot of pottery, scarves and jewelry – if you’re looking for a little piece of Portland to take home, then visit the market and buy some earrings.

Here are a few food vendors – they at least have variety!

All in all it was a quick visit to the market. Perhaps it was because we visited in March, I’m not too sure. Here in Edmonton our markets are open year round and they always have fresh local and in season fruits and vegetables. You pick – market or sleep in. Heck, it’s open until 5pm so you could do both!

Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for my next post – Portland Eats. Two of the top places to eat in Portland. Bye for now.

Travel: Oregon Zoo

Oregon Zoo: 3ten.ca

The zoo! I love the zoo and the Oregon Zoo is no exception. They run a humane system of working with experts and stand strong on many issues such as climate change, exotic pets and palm oil.

The Oregon Zoo is relatively inexpensive at only $14.95 during the high season. The day we visited it was raining, yet not to worry – we had fun and saw so many animals!

This mountain goat is all about playing in the rain. He’s climbing up the hill and playing around. It was fun to watch.

Check out this guy – a little polar bear pup eating a piece of raw chicken (see it on the end of the log?).

That tongue is huge!

Funny story about this little guy. He dropped his chicken in the water and then tried to reach it with his paw. You can clearly see he can’t reach the water! Then he walked over to the water’s edge and tried to paw at the water to grasp the chicken again. He was so perplexed trying to figure out how to get his chicken. He walked around and looked from about 4 minutes. Then, it was like a switch flipped…he ran out on the log and just belly flopped into the water to get at his chicken. It was so funny – the best little interaction I’ve had at the zoo to date.

Me with my umbrella and mitts. Having fun in all sorts of weather!

The tiger is staying dry, too.

Overall, we had a great visit at the zoo. It was rainy, yes; but honestly, it was awesome. In the past I’ve visited zoos in the heat and I tend to miss the animals who like it a bit cooler. Here in Portland that’s exactly what we go to see. Total awesomeness. Thanks for visiting!
