|Pine State Biscuits, Portland, Oregon|
I had the Reggie: fried chicken, bacon and cheese, topped with gravy!! Yummy! Yummy!
How are you today? Jule and I headed over to Portland, Oregon. Jule's visa was about to expire in a few days so we have to do Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington in 4 days. We decided that we would only have time to be in Portland overnight so we definitely chose well.
On our way up, we stopped at Blue Star Memorial Highway to take a few minutes and check out the view.
I am all about good food so I discovered the most delicious biscuit stop that I have ever had! If you ever go to Portland, you must go here! On a weekday, the line was out the door! The place is small with only two tables and a row of bar seating. It's a first come, first serve basis on seats and everyone seemed to know the drill. We were lucky enough to share seats with a group of people.
This place was actually featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives on the Food Network and this is definitely a unique pit stop that you cannot miss! The food is so affordable. All the biscuits range from a regular biscuit $1.50 to the seared flank steak with blue cheese biscuit for $8!!

This is an amazing, independent bookstore that is over 1 block long. It is filled with over a million new, used and out of print books.
|After speaking with about 5 different people, they said you cannot leave Portland without visiting Voodoo doughnuts. Jule and I had to figure out what the big deal was about these sweet treats!|
|Voodoo is known for their unusual flavored doughnuts, unique names and interesting flavors.|
|This place must be good because the place was filled with people and we were backed up all the way to the door!|
|The original Voo Doo Doughnut location was closed for remodeling so luckily there was a second store!|
