Welcome to YOUR Portland Neighborhood Community

*photo from Portland's Dining Month*


I think it might be one of my most favorite topics to discuss. Good food, fancy food, fresh food, local food.

With March comes Spring but also too comes

Portland's Dining Month

Now then, many people from near and far have challenged me on how good cuisine in Portland REALLY is.  Ahem, I'm a self-professed foodie after all. And my palate is bionic...I mean that ever so kindly.  I don't make this up people. I taste things in food or drink that most don't taste. And trust me, sometimes that is not a 'good' thing. In fact, there is this test I've been wanting to take...it's called the 'supertaster' test.

Only 25% of the population are supertasters.

If I were to find out I was a supertaster I'd then want to be a food critic and write lovely articles about food. Okay, not really. It might be harder to enjoy the food and write about it too?

All that aside, I have lived in a great city with great cuisine and now I can admit that Portland is way ahead of the game. That which is not easy for me to admit. I still love you Austin, TX.

Now then since I don't have photos of fancy food to share for this article in honor of food month I instead am using photos that I shot in a cookbook collaboration that perhaps one day will be in a book. Perhaps I'll be a food photographer instead? I really do like photographing food as well as eating it.

What do you get for $29?

90+ restaurants in Portland will be serving up three tasty courses.

That's THREE course of amazing cuisine at some of the best Portland eateries for only:


As such, a donation is made to the Oregon Food Bank if you make your reservation online.

Why yes, I did also get to eat the food during the photo shoot.

So then, because the news on Food Month has been teasing me for a few weeks now I finally narrowed the choice down to ONE. There were three (almost four) on the list. They always say to pick three to choose from? It's my favorite number after all.

I'm still crossing fingers that I'll be able to manage to treat myself to this.

It will be great research material for an article after all.

              My dream three course meal would be at:


                  Portland's Eliot Neighborhood
                816 North Russell, Portland, OR 97227

Mint is an American Bistro with influences from the Pacific North West, the Mediterranean and Latin America.

The three course meal here boasts the following:

So then, for those of you contemplating, here are the essentials:

Don't forget, a donation to the Oregon Food Bank is made if you make your reservation online.

As such there are also choices for those with special dietary needs, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are also available.

Happy feasting. Happy weekend.

Cheers, Rachel
