Lee Anne Wong made me do it.
The “Top Chef” competitor from Season 1 — and my gal pal — coerced me into going to Pine State Biscuits, a small biscuit shop on Belmont Avenue in Portland known for its kick-ass biscuits and gravy.
In fact, it was the only place she suggested I eat at.
So on my last half-day in the PDX, it was the first place on my list. My girlfriend, Merrissa, who moved to Portland about a year ago, picked me up — and brought along her appetite.
We were ready!
Here’s what my last six hours in Portland looked like:
Beautiful last day in PDX
Thank you to everyone who followed my adventures on this blog, on Twitter and Instagram. You all make my trips so much more fun! Next up: Australia!
Glad you had a good time in Portland. It’s a great city to eat through. You speak great truth; Pine State DEFINITELY has the best biscuits and gravy. Thanks to this post in fact, I may have to toddle over to Belmont sometime soon…
OMG I’m STILL thinking about those biscuits! Crazy good!
Where are the folks from that opened the biscuit shop? Reason I ask is that NC used to have a dairy called Pine State Creamery. Think they were bought up a while back. All I can say is that every Southerner loves good biscuits, we grow up eating them with chicken, sausage, and other gravies. For some reason a well made biscuit is so very good to eat.
Australia eh? Love that p[lace, can’t wait to see where you go and what you do!
Picture #1: Looks like you got a pic of the Aerial Tram passing over the roadway.
Glad you got to eat biscuits and gravy.
By the way, you need to come back here….and bring good weather with you. 😛
Thanks for sharing your adventure. You made me jealous with every post.
Thanks for reading! 🙂
