    Have you been to Hoo Soon Kyi in on the Beaverton-HIllsdale Hwy? I've not, but I hear good things. Koreana is also supposed to be very good (tons of Yelp reviews, for what that's worth), and it's basically right down the street.

    Jam: kinda sucks. Tasty n Sons is good, but not in my opinion as good as it's hyped to be---and Accanto has a much shorter wait. Broder (which you mentioned) is my favorite brunch in Portland. Screen Door's and Simpatica's are good, too. I'm not really a breakfast person, though. I'm not really into Little Big Burger; I think Violetta is much better.

    Wong's King is probably the best Chinese in Portland, both for dim sum and dinner. Ha VL has good Vietnamese soup! Better than pho. I think An Xuyen make the best banh mi in Portland (especially the lemongrass pork), and they're $3.

    Or Coava for coffee, especially if you're a coffee nerd. Regional Barista Champion?

    If you want well made, proper breakfast without a line, go to Roost. I promise. It's amazing.

    14th and Belmont.

    We had Robert Ellis in the shop last week to record a live show with the Portland Sessions.

    I thought some of you might be interested in check it out.

    Got back from Portland last night...had a blast! The weather was pretty amazing...considering I was told it was going to be snowing when I got there (conversely, I was told that LA had heavy rain. Then again, heavy rain in LA is probably a sprinkle to Portland people). Thanks for all the recommendations...I wanted to hit up so much more, but there is only so much you can do. And what's up with Screen Door's brunch? Is it worth the 3 hour wait (decided to bail on that one)?
    My eating adventure:
    DOC
    Broder
    PBJ's
    Salt & Straw
    Cool Moon Ice Cream
    Grand Central Bakery
    Waffle Window
    Grilled Cheese Grill
    St. Jacks
    Yakuza
    Toro Bravo (highly recommend the $30 tasting menu)
    Tasty n' Sons (Burmese Red Pork Stew is the bizz-nuss)
    Bunk Bar/Sandwich
    Solstice (on the Washington border...amazing pizza)
    Double Mountain Brewery (Hood River)
    Mo's (near the coast....sucked balls)

    I drank so much damn coffee. Barista, Stumptown, Coava, Water Ave, Ristretto...and all those food cart "villages" are so dope. Man, you guys are lucky.

    Got to see all the regular shops. Has anyone checked out Lizard Lounge lately? They have some good sizes (meaning, my size and around that) on some Quoddy ring moccasins for 50% off.

    And the girls I saw were a lot more attractive that I remembered! Maybe because the sun was out and they decided to show their faces.

    No brunch, anywhere, is worth a 3-hour wait. Unless you get a blowjob at the end.

    I got nothing here. My recent shopping has been limited to car research and now the impending purchase. I wish it was more exciting but buying a car sucks.

    Frances May had a sale. Maybe it's ongoing. Did anybody go?

    Lots of awesome restaurant news since that discussion happened last.

    Think that Frances May's sale is ongoing actually. They usually just have their mark downs stay on the racks until gone. Not sure if/how that's reflected on the site....

    Spending 5 days there. This is a good food guideline!
