Couple of pics of food I ate in restaurants this weekend:

sweet potato tater-tot with cambazola cheese and truffle mayo (Amuse Bouche)

Gulf scallops with uni cream, pickled shallots, sea beans, and burdock stem.
buffalo tartare with pickled celery
braised lamb neck with masa dumpling and cotija-corn relish
fried duck hearts on flatbread with raita and chutney.

Cheese pastry (pastelito) with guava gummy and watermelon granita
dark chocolate mousse with ladyfingers and some addictive crunchy shit
eggs benny tartine
avocado on toast with egg salad
6-bowl from fresh kitchen… Bbq chicken, steak, broccoli, sweet potatoes, coconut jasmine rice, cauli-potato mash.
wood fired filet mignon with butter, roasted shallot, and two salts (fennel and black garlic)
carrots with creme freche, hazelnuts, and cilantro.
smoked beef shortrib with cornbread drop-biscuits and watermelon.
bone marrow with pickled mushrooms, onion jam, truffle pesto, and some spicy sauce that was amazing. Washed this down with a bottle of Medlock Ames Cabernet Sauvignon, Katie & b’s cuvée.

Happy Monday everybody!

I’ve been cooking again slightly, nothing major though. But here’s what I had from an Argentinian Steakhouse last night, skirt steak was perfection:

I’m a foodie. This becomes a problem when I’m cutting, like I am now. I can stick with hard diets for however long it takes, but man is it hard. I’m 2 days into the cut and I’m already missing all the good food.

That said, I always try and make my food taste good even when dieting.


Beef with mozzarella cheese and tomatoes cooked in olive oil and browned garlic.

This was today’s dinner. Tomatoes are my favorite veggies, plus I love meat and cheese, and this meal just tasted GOOD.

I’ll stick to meals like this as well as salads with tuna and salmon. These should make the cut easier as I like the taste (probably better than I do chicken beast with broccoli).


#747

You’re one of those guys, huh? Tomatoes don’t identify as a veggie.

Are you back in PDX? That looks like it could be Tusk.

I know Chris, I know. And strawberries aren’t a fruit either.

It’s okay homie, it’s okay.


#749

Thank god for interns. On the company’s dime because it’s our interns last day on Friday.


#750

Believe it or not, those were in Tampa!

I’ll be back in PDX next week, I plan to eat a few solid meals while I’m there :slight_smile:

Any recommendations other than tusk? I have a friend who works at Roe; might give that a go…

Check out D.O.C. If you get a chance… 3 tasting menus later and I still think it’s the best bang for your buck.

Sous vide pork belly over Gemelli carbonara Americano (w/ peas and shallots):


#754

I really like Bluehour, Clyde’s Common, Le Pigeon, and Pok Pok to name a few.

Good morning Oregon!

The spread at Tusk in Portland:


#757

I’d be perfectly happy with just that bread and hummus!


#758

Looks like it didn’t disappoint.

If you want a large steak Urban Farmer is amazing. Its a cool location, in an atrium. It’s across from Pioneer Square, in the Nines Hotel. On the top floor is Departure, which has great views and pretty good food.

Smoked renaissance festival Turkey leg. Better than steak. Just perfect. Need to find a good source of Turkey legs year round and smoke em myself.


#760

Which one do you go to? I’ve heard of a couple these past few weeks.


#761

@FatKidfromFL’s latest post & @Basement_Gainz turkey leg made me hungry af.

The one in west newton. My niece who is a starving artist actress works there as one of her 50 gigs. The comedy acts are great. This weekend was free admission for kids.
