San Francisco Zoo

-

As you guys probably know, I love San Francisco… I’ve talked about the amazing park with the concrete slide, the incredible interactive museum, the world famous Fisherman’s Wharf, and the delicious chocolate factory! But there’s more! There’s always more!

This time I went to the zoo!

First off, its huge. There are so many different animals, ones I didn’t even know existed! My family and I had fun walking around trying to spot all of the animals. My favorite was the tiger (who was actually active and walking around–kind of intimidating, but beautiful).

Naturally when my baby brother saw a train go around, he just had to get on, so there we went. Each person had to pay $5, but it was worth it to see his face light up while we went around the zoo.

The best thing about this zoo was the playground! My sister and brother had a blast at this park. There is just something about San Francisco playgrounds that make them the best!

You can also get your zoo fix and your beach fix all within one intersection! The wonders of being on the California Coast.

Can’t wait to go back!

Savory Providence

-

Hello all again! What started out as a normal trip to visit colleges in New England turned into something much more rewarding.

Upon arrival at Providence, Rhode Island, I was greeted with long, narrow, cobblestone roads and century-old brick buildings that alluded to the colonial period. The verdant trees consisting of an array of colors were attracting to every citizen. It was as if a giant rainbow had become three dimensional for everyone to enjoy. Walking down the quaint streets, I smelled the savory scents from the restaurants adjacent to each other.

p2

One extremely memorable restaurant was Kitchen, in which one man took orders, made breakfast, poured drinks, cleaned up the dirty dishes and collected the check and tip. One might think that this sort of setup wouldn’t generate that many people, but Yelp and the ambient atmosphere displayed otherwise. Although it was extremely small, people there seemed to enjoy their food with pleasure and happiness, demonstrating the success of this man. The dish I had was simple chocolate chip pancakes with a slice of bacon. The chocolate chip pancakes were made with gigantic chocolate chips and thick pancake slices, which made the taste more rich and appetizing, unlike the very thin-sliced pancakes from some restaurants The Kitchen’s pancakes’ thickness was extremely noticeable. The height of them was roughly 0.25 inches, allowing room for more chocolate chips and other assorted toppings to be inserted. Since the pancakes had more room, the chocolate chips the owner used were also larger in size, giving the pancake much more appeal and splendor. Other than the delicious pancakes, the slice of bacon I ordered was no ordinary slice of bacon. This bacon was the thickest, juiciest and tastiest cut that I’ve ever had. Writing about this already made my mouth water. p3

The rest of the day in Rhode Island was indeed filled with adventures and memorable visits to universities and restaurants. I certainly cannot wait to return there!

For girls–Bobby pins are always getting lost, right? If you put them in your makeup bag, they immediately get lost or its hard to find them. Well, that’s what Tic-Tac boxes are for! Your bobby pins will be ready to use, no more looking for them!

We all know that going through the airport security will have your water bottles being thrown away. But, if you bring an empty water bottle and refill it after passing through the security, you will save yourself those $4.

For all of those road trips we take, this would have been handy.

You can easily eat while you’re driving! This is genius! Everyone knows there are only so many cup holders and how spills are just waiting to happen when you hold everything on your lap. But with these shower caddies you can save your car from many stains.

I wish I would have known some of these things, this would have made road trips, flights, and travelling much more enjoyable.

A Perfect Saturday Afternoon in Downtown Portland

-

First off, let it be known that I am talking about Portland, Oregon and not Portland, Maine. The former was actually named after the latter in 1845. Portland, Oregon, though, seems to be getting a tad bit more airtime than his Maine namesake. Young adults are flooding in to Portland attracted to its, dare I say, “hipster” culture, made hyper-popular by the IFC show “Portlandia”. This city has been enthusiastically, but perhaps a little more quietly, brewing Portlandian culture for quite awhile now, and has been growing steadily the past 15-20 years. That being said, Portland is in. And since it is in, plenty of folks are vacationing here, eating their life savings away, going from show to show, shopping away at Portland’s many vintage shops, and hoping to spot Carrie and Fred from Portlandia. After all, Portland is where the young go to retire.

Now, when visiting Portland, there is a lot to do. So let’s cover just cover the basics for now and talk about something sweet and simple: a sweet Saturday afternoon downtown. Classic, right? And classic isn’t bad. These are some must-do’s and need to be accomplished. Plus, it’s fun. A lot of fun.

First things first, you need to find your way at the Portland Saturday Market. There is everything you need and much, much more. It’s like an artisan fair and a food cart pod and a music festival brought together in a beautiful marriage. And the fruit of this marriage are pleased palates, entertained citizens, happy customers and even happier families. From December to March, the market is closed, but as soon as spring peaks in, things are back to business.

I’ve heard of Powell’s Books for years, and I always thought, “Big deal, I’ve been to big bookstores.” But this is different. This… has… everything. They even had a Quaker section, which is beyond rare, and I say that as somebody who has been to Strand and John K. King, etc., and I have looked for a Quaker section. There is never such a thing. It was remarkable. And they also have a pretty killer cafe. (Portland knows how to do coffee.)

Stumptown Coffee Roasters, though it exists in other cities now, is a Portland classic. For serious coffee drinkers, Stumptown is perfect. The French Roast will forever be my favorite. Everybody who visits Portland will encounter Stumptown at some point, whether it be at brunch, church, or a dinner party, but I recommend going straight to the source and see Stumptown for all that it is. Also, Duane Sorenson, Stumptown’s founder, also found a nonprofit whose mission is to provide cargo bicycles for coffee farmers, as well as granting other services.

Now, I think you can do a whole lot more during a day in Portland, but for an afternoon, this is perfect in every sense of the word. Stay tuned for more posts on Portland.

There is a lot I enjoy about Portland, Oregon. I love how it feels like a big town. You see people you know often throughout the city but you are also constantly meeting new people. It is so easy to navigate and the transportation system is incredible in how frequent the rides are and in its accessibility. Little businesses thrive here, and people love things local. But what I really, really love is how much food there is. If you know me, you will know that food is my ‘love language‘. The purest way of showing love to me is by putting a bowl of Thai red curry before me. Some bubble tea wouldn’t hurt either. So living in Portland has been a beautiful experience because of the thousands of food trucks and even more restaurants that serve just about everything.

  • For a bowl of Pho, I recommend Pho Kim at 2204 South East 82 Ave. It is extremely affordable, the service is incredibly friendly, and you get free, refillable pots of Jasmine tea with your meal. When I have a cold, or when it is cold, Pho is the perfect dish, and Pho Kim does it right. Pho is a Vietnamese soup with rice noodles and meat, and you often get a dish of slices jalapenos, bean sprouts, and mint leaves to add to your Pho as you desire, as well as different sauces (plum sauce, Sriracha, etc.). I always enjoy seeing how different everybody at my table’s Pho bowls look from one another. If you’re going to get Pho in SE Portland, and in Portland as a whole, I heartily recommend Pho Kim.

  • Slappy Cakes at 4246 SE Belmont St is also one of those places where you can individualize your food to suit your tastes perfectly. You are seated at a table with a grill in the center and you choose what you want to add to your pancakes, and what kind pancake batter you want (buttermilk, sweet potato, whole grain, etc.),  and make your pancakes yourself. It is quick, easy, and delicious. I had a blast making blueberry, white chocolate chip, goat cheese buttermilk pancakes as well as a more savory pancake (though with sweet potato batter) that consisted of bacon, cheddar cheese, cilantro, onions, and chorizo. I know–this does not appeal to everybody. But I was very, very happy. This is the type of place where everybody will be satisfied with the food and will have a ton of fun.

  • Pad Thai Kitchen on 2309 SE Belmont St was a place I was very hesitant of because I am quite critical of Thai food. I love Thai food–in fact, it is my favorite kind of food! But when a place is named after Pad Thai, the most marketable of Thai dishes, I wonder if it is… authentic. But, I was pleasantly surprised when I ordered their Red Curry and it was amazing. It was not too brothy, like a lot of mediocre Thai places, and actually had the perfect texture and, in my humble opinion, taste. Though it could have been spicier, I still give it an A. Also, their coconut shrimp was delicious and their pineapple fried rice was excellent, and I am not really into fried rice because it so often is something you can just make at home, often times much healthier and fresher. But the flavors were bold and I honestly couldn’t tell you how exactly to go about making their fried rice. It was special, and so was Pad Thai Kitchen.

  • Los Alambres Torteria Taqueria is a food truck at 1134 SE 82nd Ave that has the best tacos I have eaten in Portland, hands down. Their menu is large, packed with Taqueria classics, including sandwiches. Their carnitas tacos and pastor tacos are, in my opinion, the best of their tacos, but I have heard that one of their tacos, packed with pork, french fries, and grilled onions, is even better. I had a bite and I liked it, but it wasn’t my sort of thing. Their gordita has to be my favorite thing there, which is packed with cheese, pork, and onions in a bread pocket. What really makes this place special is their homemade salsa, which is fairly spicy but extremely flavorful and delicious. Also, Los Alhambres is parked right next to an awesome bakery, which you should stop by if you are getting taco or two, or five (if you are me).
