Let’s just finish this up, eh? Just look at the pictures.

Portland, Oregon 97227
Blueberry Pecan Pancakes | $8.75
Mmm … yum. Need to remember to make pancakes like these. We all shared this and we thought it’d be two small pancakes. We were very wrong.
The Bacato [bacon, green onion, cream cheese & tomato] | $9.75
You can pick a side of eggs, tofu, house potatoes, or hash browns.
Mum got a side of hash browns. I will DEFINETLY come back for these if I ever had a chance. I’m sure they’re horrible for you since I’m sure they fry them but … holy moly. It’s like eating a giant potato chip!
The Dalise [bacon, sausage, ham, sweet peppers, mushroom, onion, and cheddar covered with sausage gravy] | $10.75
I chose house potatoes. I don’t think I’d pick this again though. The meats made everything too salty for me. It wasn’t a favorite. The house potatoes were tasteless. I guess I got a bad plate?
We then headed to Portland Saturday Market which are opened Sundays as well from March to December.
Portland Saturday Market
2 SW Naito Parkway
Portland, Oregon 97204
Don’t get this confused with the Farmer’s Market. Two separate things. Here they sell things they make and there are food carts. I wanted to buy everything.
They had weird statues for everyone to see.
One of the views when walking around the market. How gorgeous.
We got thirsty and got Bubble Tea. Not that amazing compared to Houston of course.
We headed to our next destination. Mum LOVES gardens so we had to make a stop at one before we could go back home. We got a deal off Groupon. Thank you, Groupon!
Lan Su Chinese Garden
239 NW Everett St.
Portland, Oregon 97209
How freaking gorgeous.
Sissy and I weren’t really looking forward to go to the gardens. But by golly, I’m thankful we did. What a sight.
We went back to the apartment to rest then headed out for dinner.
9757 SE Sunnyside Rd
Clackamas, Oregon 97015
Gyoza [vegetable fried dumplings] | $4.25
They had it with pork but seeing how Sissy is vegetarian …
It was really delicious. Much better than I thought it’d be.
Seafood Yaki Udon [stir fried udon noodles & vegetables (onion, carrot, cabbage, broccoli, red & green peppers), green mussels, scallop, shrimp, yaki noodle sauce] | $15.95
Came with a Miso which tasted way better than the Miso I had back in Sinju Restaurant.
The Udon wasn’t bad either. I would of eaten it all if I didn’t have so much sushi.
Sweet Veggie [cucumber, avocado, asparagus rolled in tonkatsu] | $4.50
Asparagus [asparagus, sesame seeds] | $2.75
Tofu Veggie Roll [cucmber, radish sprout, asparagus, deep fried tofu, sesame seed] | $4.95
Sissy three vegetarian rolls which we didn’t touch. Who wants this when you can get what’s below?! Regardless, Oregon really does have a lot of vegetarian and vegan choices. Makes it much easier to eat out for them!
Tempura [shrimp tempura, cucumber, avocado, sesame, sweet sauce] | $ 5.25
Spider [deep fried soft shell crab, cucumber, avocado, sesame, sweet sauce] | $7.75
Beauty & the Beast [spicy tuna, creamy scallop, masago, spicy mayo, sweet sauce] | $8.95

Tiger Roll [krab, avocado, cucumber, shrimp, peanut, sweet chili sauce] | $10.95
Bloody Vampire [spicy tuna, spicy salmon, creamy scallop (deep fried) with sweet chili sauce] | $8.95
Always wanted to order a crap load of sushi on one plate and finally got a chance to! My favorites were Masago (of course!), Beauty & the Beast, and the Bloody Vampire! YUM YUM YUM!
Bruno. I miss you! Him all up in my sleeping bag.
Day 5 … day of goodbyes. Always get the wing seat … unintentionally.
We landed in Phoenix, Arizona for our layover. Mum and I got our early lunch.
Paradise Bakery & Cafe
3400 E Sky Harbor Blvd.
Phoenix, AZ 85034
Pesto Pasta [with a side of Cesar Salad]
Also came with a chocolate chip cookie! Everything was delicious. Airport food is actually pretty good …
Gah … finally done with Oregon update. It was a fun trip and if I ever had a chance to I would go again to half the places I went. Who wants to go with me? We can make a trip of it!
