Nutshell in Portland is absolutely delicious. For starters, the menu of fresh breads, upscale olive oils and salts (top left and right): mmmmm. My entree (bottom left, crispy risotto cakes: local asparagus, saffron onions, lemon aioli & arugula) was so flavorful I lost a few taste buds in tragic romantic fashion. The Margarita flatbread (with spicy tomato sauce, cashew puree, olives & local basil leaves) was also delectable. No complaints.
Being in the Pacific Northwest, I wasn’t leaving until hitting the vegan strip mall: Sweetpea Bakery, Herbivore clothing, Food Fight Grocery and Scapegoat Tattoo all took space on a quiet SE Stark street in Portland.
