080622 Sunday Parkways

  Portland shut down six miles of streets in North Portland including the Overlook neighborhood for cycling, walking, rollerblading, anything but cars.
  It was quite an ending to the Carfree conference which was held in Portland that week. What a great way to start a Sunday.
  Susan took Amelia and I had Abby on the trail-a-bike. The kids had a lot of fun and enjoyed the stops at the parks. We started a little late and they ended the Parkways a little early, we could have played for a lot longer with Patrick and Sadie. Patrick was visiting from Baltimore.

Asian Food suggestions in Portland

I got this from my intern, who got it from someone else. I always think the Chinese food is just okay in Portland, so here's some thoughts on where to go next time.

Pho restaurants:
Pho Oregon- 2518 NE 82nd Ave
Pho Saigon- 2850 SE 82nd Ave (their pork chops plate is good too!)
Pho Hung- 3120 SE 82nd Ave
Good Taste (known for their yellow egg noodle soup & roasted pork. They do NOT serve Pho)- 8220 SE Harrison Street

Vietnamese food:
Zien Hong- 5314 NE Sandy Blvd
Thien Hong- 6749 NE Sandy Blvd
My Canh- 1801 NE 39th Ave

Chinese food:
Gold Garden (next to Gold Coin Lounge)- 3016 SE 82nd Ave
Lam Yuen (very good for dim sum too!)- Old Town China Town (first building on right block as you pass the two huge lion statues)
Wong’s King (also good for dim sum!)- 8733 SE Division St
Legin (ok for dim sum.)- 8001 SE Division St
