For dessert, we joined another line next door at Salt & Straw (2035 NE Alberta St., (503) 208-3867.) for handmade ice cream. Quality is high, sugar is low, and butterfat is 17%, but flavors are not the usual—think strawberry-honey-balsamic with black pepper or pear with blue cheese, but also almond brittle with chocolate ganache (my delicious choice). Only all-natural dairy and the best local, sustainable, and organic ingredients are used.
More things to do in Portland.
