Tour Guide Part 2

Our awkward photo to prove we hung out.

This weekend I finally got to meet up with one of the amazing people I've meet via blogging,  Larissa. I lured Larissa to Portland with the promise of Voodoo donuts, Powells, shopping, and getting to meet my cute animals.

We did head out to the suburbs so we could check out the talked-up, newly opened, Native Foods Cafe. I tried the "chicken run ranch burger" (as did Larissa, great minds think alike!) and Colin ate the "Super Italian Meatball Sub." The chicken sandwich was good, the fries were seasoned and I might skip out on the seasoning next time (if they have plain) and just dip them in their delicious vegan ranch.  I, of course, had to try dessert and ordered the "Chocolate Love Pie." To preface, I am a total vegan-dessert-snob, & I have to say, ehh. It was only alright, I wouldn't order it again. But I did have a bite of Larissa's cupcake, and it was pretty tasty.

We had a lot of fun this weekend (despite the usual Portland rain) and spent Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday morning running all over city. The rest of the time we watched some silly movies and ate a lot of food. I've discovered from playing tour guide I need at least 3 to 4 full days in Portland to give a good tour. So Larissa, please come back soon!
