“It’s like eating a hug.” With that tagline, how can you go wrong?
If you want to eat everything that would be inside a burrito, visit the Whole Bowl. Delicious, nutritious, and pretty cheap at $6 for the big bowl (pictured below.) The Whole Bowl web site.
Kure Juice is my favorite juice place! I almost always get the Extra Mile. It’s made with coconut milk yogurt, coconut meat, kale, almond butter, coconut water, honey, and ice. So delicious. Of course there are many other flavors on the menu.
Don’t forget to pick up a card. After you collect 75 points, you get a free juice!
I’ve always gone to their 4409 SE Hawthorne location, but they have other ones as well.
Full menu and location information available on Kure’s web site.
It’s been so warm in Portland this summer, but luckily we have a lot of delicious ice cream stores to try! 50 Licks is just around the corner from Portland Digs. They have very creative flavors that are a bit more subtle than similar artisanal ice cream shops. I like subtle. I tried jasmine tea ice cream, a coconut saffron vegan flavor, and ended up purchasing Tahitian vanilla with bee pollen as topping. Yum. I got it in a cup out of habit, but then found out that their waffle cones are gluten-free! She gave me one for free since I was so excited about that. Also fun, is the art on the walls. They are common pastoral landscapes that you might find in a second hand store, but someone has painted in giant ice cream cones.

There’s an extensive savory menu of lunch or dinner items, including a veggie pot pie, mac and cheese, biscuits and gravy, and lasagna.
