Sunday in Portland: food, shoes, and satisfaction!

Not to be a creature of habit, but I can't seem to get enough of the vibe or the food at EVOE, the new temple of all things delicious attached to Pastaworks here in Portland. As I said in this post, chef Kevin Gibson is kicking out some fabulous small plates for extremely reasonable prices, and w and I are rapidly being trained to show up ever Sunday afternoon for a couple of plates and a glass or two of wine. Again, if you haven't been there (the hours are 11-6 Tuesday-Sunday) you are missing out on some of the best food in town! This past Sunday we sat down and swooned over the following......
The incredible pork belly on a steaming pile of pacha beans with chopped goat horn peppers. This was SO good!
Chevre Chaud on Arugala. Definitely my kind of salad course!
Prior to satisfying our hunger at EVOE, w satisfied her shoe fetish at Amenity Shoes, a really cool new women's shoe store on NW 23rd. They pride themselves on selling comfortable shoes with awesome style and prices. The service was excellent, and I have to say w's new shoes are über-cool! They have another store on NE Fremont, too.
