Portland eats- Salt and Straw Creamery (ice cream)

Who likes ice cream? I know there are people who are lactose intolerant but for those of you who are not (or who are willing to take some lactose pills), you must visit Portland's famous Salt and Straw. Forget about the traditional ice cream flavours. When you are in here, you have to think outside the box. Pear and Blue Cheese, Marionberry Bourbon & Hazelnut Fudge are just two of the many exotic flavours you will find in Portland. The best part of this place is that you are welcome to sample a small spoonful of anything you like. I mean, it is quite a commitment when it comes to buying oddly flavoured ice cream so it definitely helps when you can at least taste them before purchasing.

We come to this place probably once a month or two. It is my guilty indulgence especially I always have two flavours on a toasty waffle cone. Today my two choices are Cany Cap Mushroom & Port (it is a Portland exclusive) topping with Honey Lavender. I was told this special mushroom produces a maple syrup flavour.  Man, they were both delicious and DEFINITELY not a diet-friendly option. This falls under my "once in a long while" category for sure.

So when you visit Portland, be sure to drop by Salt and Straw on 23rd. Be daring, be brave and try something you'd never imagined. You will not be disappointed.

Happy Wednesday and thanks for reading :)

Wow those sound like really exotic flavours! :)

We have a gelato place here that has some "out-there" flavours but nothing compared to this! I always look at the new flavours and think I should try them, but always go with a safe and predictable option instead haha!
