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.
