I have so many posts to make from my trips that I don’t even know where to begin. But, I suppose the most impressive place that I went should go first.
After a thrilling trip to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, where I kicked some butt in old school video games, I headed to the one spot in Portland that was a must-go gluten free place…
New Cascadia Traditional ” The Gluten Free Artisans”
pretentious fitting name.
We had just missed sandwich time, which they serve until 3pm, so that was disappointing.
But they had so many other choices that I had to try a few things, one for now and one for later.
For now = asiago bagel with cream cheese.
When was the last time that you could order one bagel from a store, and have them make it for you the way you like? For me, probably about six years.
It was definitely a great bagel, but I think I may have lost my bagel lust somewhere along the way. It just doesn’t do the same thing it did for me in high school when I got a bagel with butter on it nearly every day after school (oh the shame).
For later =this amazing pizza with asparagus, mushrooms, blue cheese, and hazelnuts.
Yeah – who knew about the deliciousness of hazelnuts on a pizza?
I ate this for dinner, and then as a snack, and then as another dinner. I could have eaten the whole thing in one sitting though, but it was really rich, so I managed to hold off.
The only thing lacking at New Cascadia was the customer service. The girl behind the counter looked like she wanted to kill me every time I asked a question, and heaven forbid I ask for my bagel toasted. But luckily their food made up for it. I could have spent $100 on food here easily – blueberry pie, fresh bread, scones, cookies – you name it, they had it.
