I like to keep up with a number of local food (and travel) blogs and love to share posts I find particularly appealing. Here are some the posts that caught my eye this past month.

My good friend Judith recounted her fun family weekend getaway at Skamania Lodge in WA, a great place to hang with family and celebrate her daughter Edie’s second birthday. Key point: “From its sprawling estate and beautiful grounds to its spectacular views of the Gorge and fun family activities, we all found something that we loved.” Continue reading “This Is Good: Food Blog Posts of Note, August 2017”

It’s been nice knowing you, pepperoni slice.

Update 9/22/17: Atomic Pizza Hollywood is closing Saturday, September 23 (see comment below this post).

It’s been a rough day in NE Portland food news—this morning I heard that Pollo Norte has closed their original location (5427 NE 42nd Avenue) and around noon I heard that the Hollywood location of Atomic Pizza will close on October 28 September 23. Atomic Pizza was the first place I ate at after moving to Portland, so I have a lot of nostalgia wrapped up in the place. Continue reading “Atomic Pizza Hollywood To Close September 23”

First Tastes: Sweets and Meats

I’m back with one of my favorite things on Bridgetown Bites—First Tastes, where I roundup recent initial tastes at new-to-me places in Portland.

Moroccan Lamb Meatballs | Suzette Creperie. Originally we planned on chowing down on tacos from Tight Tacos, but the truck was closed because of the hot weather. So, we wandered down SE Belmont in search of something tasty, and found ourselves at Suzette Creperie. I couldn’t resist ordering these little lamb meatballs, served with a “spicy tomato sauce” (chunky, yes; spicy, no) and topped with a sunny-side up fried egg. It was served with a small piece of toasted baguette, too. Continue reading “First Tastes: Sweets and Meats”
