Kell’s St. Patricks Irish Festival

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! This year I celebrated the holiday a few days early at Kell’s annual St. Patrick’s Irish Festival in downtown Portland. Each year Kells sets up an enormous white tent in the parking lot behind the main bar complete with a dance floor, stage, beer stands, and a kitchen that cooks up traditional Irish food.

Baja Fish Tacos

Last week I had a craving for fish tacos, yet another seafood dish I fell in love with after moving to the west coast. Something about the crunchy breading on the fish, tangy sauce, and warm corn tortilla spells comfort food to me.

Northwest 23rd Ave – Portland, OR

Our first stop: Northwest 23rd Ave where the streets are lined with great little restaurants and funky shops housed inside the attics, main levels, and even basements of beautiful, antique homes.
