Over on 26th and Clinton in Southeast Portland, just a few blocks between my (Alex’s) middle school and high school, there is a little corner with multiple dining spots: K&F Coffee, The Press Club wine bar, NoHo’s Hawaiian, and many more. Two of these spots are Broder, a Scandinavian cafe, and Savoy Tavern, a mid-western themed restaurant and bar. They are owned by the same people, and we love both spots. In this post Becky will share with you our outing to Broder, and Alex will share the trip to Savoy. Enjoy!

Alex and I constantly have a running mental list of restaurants we want to visit. We hear from friends or read in blogs, magazines or newspapers about the new places in Portland that everyone’s eating, and subsequently talking and writing about. I love that there are always new, fun restaurants popping up in Portland to check out, so the list will never really end.
Tasty n Sons has been on that list for a long time. So, after a failed attempt to dine there with my parents for brunch (a long line means a good, popular restaurant, after all), Alex and I found ourselves back there one day after he had an interview. And we were so glad we did.

Because of my current habitation status, I am not boasting the impressive bar I once had. Sadly, my previous post about bitters and sodas features my entire bar at the moment.
One of the reasons I moved to Portland, however, was to enjoy the vivid, busy, and always growing cocktail scene. Becky and I have recently discovered a little place which has quickly become my favorite hang-out: The Hazel Room.
Welcome to the first installment of our Out to Eat in PDX post series! Portland has so many wonderful and varied food establishments, and we love to go out to eat here and experience the vibrant food culture. So in these posts we’ll share with you the restaurants, food carts and bars we’re visiting, what we got, and what we thought. Let us know if you have a place you’d like us to visit and write about!
We’re really into waffles. Sweet or savory, Belgian or Brussels or Liege style, cooked in our kitchen or eaten at a restaurant – we just really like them. We like waffles so much that (as some of you may know) we’re planning to name our future dog after them.
So naturally, we visited The Waffle Window.
