DAY 2 PORTLAND

VEGAN NACHO  

VEGAN NACHO

 

There is no way a more vegetarian/vegan-friendly city than Portland, Oregon exists in North America. They basically made a sketch comedy show about the reality of that place, and it's all true, and we love it. Our ambassadors for the night were our friends Lizzie and Chris Mason, of Dirt Cult Records, and they took us to one of their favourite spots, El Nutri Taco, which is a very legit taqueria on the Alberta Street drag. This place has options galore for every type of eater, even the real fussy types and those low on dough. Gluten free, homemade soy chorizo, tempeh nachos? Oh Portland, you're so gentle! Meat eaters also have the full spread, and they even do breakfast and monthly specials. 

We are not afraid of two suppers, so we ate again at another spot and then bought a zillion beers and a bag of tortilla chips from the gas station on the way home, where Lizzie made us fresh micheladas.

the other place I mentioned eating supper number two at, refers to themselves as a "taco lab". The food was pretty good, and it was on the same street, but it was a totally different universe.
