If you have never been to the Portland/ Seattle area it is a trip of amazing senery and food. Join me as I take you thru the culinary wonderland of the Pacific Northwest.
We arrived in portland and meet my friend Nick Chambly my kids friend from the hood. We ate dinner in a funky neighborhood at a place called, Tin Shed Garden Café they believe that energy travels through food: not just caloric .
Tin Shed Garden Café is located in the cozy heart of the Alberta Arts Neighborhood.
1438 NE Alberta St.
Portland, OR 97211
I cannot express how much i really enjoyed this place. The ambiance and the mood of the staff was awesome. I really recommend sitting outside if the weather is nice you wont regret it. The food was delicious I got their famous fish tacos.
P.S if suffer from separation anxiety from your baby/pooch/mans best friend thats okay because they are allowed here. If you have encountered insufferable businesses that don’t consider dogs to be people/children too this is the place you’ve been waiting for they have a small menu for your dog that i’m sure they will enjoy.
Ok…Next stop the coast of Oregon. Cannon Beach. This is a very lovely and small village on the 101 highway.
