What's for Dinner...


Undoubtedly one of the best perks to working in the industry is that you tend to befriend people who really know how to feed you. Aside from being one of the most positive and kick a$$ people we know, Mike Martinez, owner of the absolutely satisfying Encanto on North Lombard, happened to be not only a vital friend but mentor to us during our Portland Farmers Market days. We thank our lucky stars every night that not only can we call this man (and his family) as well as his crew, friends of ours, but that we have access to this food nightly. Thanks guys and gals, you fuel our fire.

Pushers! That's all ye are, just taunting us with the yummy sopiapilla goodness! Did you know I was once almost hospitalized from eating an entire sopiapilla after a full breakfast because Jess's dad insisted I "just try a bite?" I thought this was a family friendly blog! :)
