Today me and Jared went into Portland proper to check out downtown. We had gotten some tips (specifically check out Voodoo doughnuts, which was on the Portland episode of No Reservations as well) and so we did.

Voodoo Doughnuts!

The place was insanely busy and we had like a 15-20 minute wait outside.



After getting a hold of our Doughnuts of choice we got a box and went outside to eat. They were as you would say in Swedish “kränkande”.

Voodoo Doughnuts!

Crazy crazy stuff. Like a pound of refined sugar.

Then walking around and checking out Pioneer Square (a mall) and generally looking around in downtown.






Really nice little city. Not very big though, it’s possible to walk across the entire downtown area in like 10-15 minutes. One other really cool thing about the place is the food-carts. Sprinkled all over downtown are these food trucks with various kinds of nationalities and flavours and they all generally seem very authentic. There was this Japanese one where I got an Okonomiyaki which was actually really good!
