Courier Coffee Roasters in Portland, Oregon

You can’t visit Portland, Oregon and miss out on their great coffee scenes. After all, this town, after Seattle, is the ground for great hand-roasted coffees and everything else that involves this staple drink. When I came to the US Pacific Northwest for the first time back in 1995, Seattle’s Best Coffee was on a roll. A big roll. Seattle was during its soul-searching period about coffees with lots of people exploring the world of...

Kenny and Zuke’s Delicatessan, PDX, OR

There’s something going on in the food scene of Portland, Oregon. Relatively a newer state when compared to others, especially those in the Eastern side of the country, Oregon is known for being the ‘Wild Wild West.’ Its beautiful and abundant natures still trump the architectures. Its big trees still the big draw. Its clean air and friendly atmosphere still the unique fantastic native characters. However, when it comes to...

Breakfast at Byways Cafe, Portland, Oregon

It would take me a whole month to write about every breakfast we had in PDX. For there, we stayed for 31 days and liked every single morning. Rain or shine, dry or puddle, warm or chill, Portland, Oregon – the small town cordially called after its airport code as ‘PDX’ – is the land of food plenty. For us, this place is a tasty utopia, and here is one meal that I single out this time to showcase the fact. If I have to...

Visiting Portland, Oregon

After five fabulous days in Seattle, it’s time for us to pack our bags and make a move southward to our beloved city of Portland, Oregon. Our plan is to be totally unpacked and spend a whole month living an easy-paced vacation consisting a lot of eating, walking, dog-watching, reading and perhaps doing some tax-free shopping. 😀 Our transportation of choice, since we vow not to drive this time in the US, is, of course, the Amtrak train...

The Pittock Mansion, Portland, OR

One thing so great about traveling in Portland (Oregon) was how easy it could be to use Google Map and navigate the way. After all, we were in the very land of Google, hence the best change to test its accuracy. Say, we, staying in downtown Portland, wanted to go to Pittock Mansion which was about 3 miles west of where we were. Using Google to map out our journey on public transportation one morning about 10am, we took their suggested route by...

Powell’s City of Books, Portland, OR

Portland, Oregon is one of the most literate cities in the US. You see people reading everywhere here. Lounging under the shades of big trees with a book in their hands and a warm drink in another. A girl at Townshend’s Tea Company in Alberta – a hip Northeast area of PDX – has with her a mini-sized electronic book while taking orders from customers. And the weather here in Portland perhaps contributes to the reading factors...

Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon

Hip, fun, heavy-metal and definitely wild and creative, Voodoo Doughnut is an institution of Portland, Oregon – a small town known for being wonderfully ‘weird’ in certain ways. Located in the heart of Portland’s old town, the 10-year-old Voodoo Doughnut offers, in rotations, original doughnuts in more than a hundred of varieties – from the simple glazed to the heavily adorned – and you can custom order some...
