Delicious Highlights of My Sliver of Feast Portland

The first Feast food extravaganza I experienced was the Grand Tasting on Friday, September 14. As you can see above, it was a gorgeous day with clear blue skies. Everyone was in a good mood as we prepared Pioneer Square for the gastronomes to arrive. Media was admitted first from noon to 1pm, and regular ticket holders entered at 1pm. I took a tiny break around 12:30 to get a little sustenance, and that was in the form of donuts from NOLA Doughnuts ...

Cool Cousin, NOLA Doughnuts

If you are willing to venture a bit outside of town, I promise you will not be disappointed in this doughnut. They are the best doughnut in the Portland area, in my opinion. My personal faves are the double salted chocolate and the chocolate ganache. They serve up beignets and cafe au laits along with chicory coffee so if you're craving some food from the Big Easy, this is the place to hang out ...

Dining in Lake Oswego

The French Quarter in Lake Oswego! A newcomer to Lake Oswego and making a big splash is NOLA Doughnuts with their light, killer beignets and chicory coffee. Add the jazz, cheerful, friendly staff and NOLA embodies the spirit of New Orleans. You just want to stay all day! I was captivated by the ambiance as I enjoyed two beignets with oodles of powdered sugar and a cafe au lait. The funny thing is that I planned to eat one beignet and take the others home. Silly me!

Portland's Best Donuts ...

The best has been found. I encountered them at the Beaverton Farmers Market. They are NOLA Doughnuts out of Lake Oswego ... They were spotlighting a new one, based on a baklava recipe, a cinnamon walnut donut that is quite literally, out of this world. They also had samples of their apple fritter. Either of these donuts were the best I have ever eaten and blow anything else away ...
