Travel Tuesday: At Lardo in Portland, Oregon, the “dirty fries” are topped with pork scraps, marinated peppers, fried herbs, and Parmesan. Little bits of skin are left on these hand-cut fries, so you get even more texture here than you would with a paler version. Pair them with one of ten (mostly West Coast) beers on tap.
Went back to the Bowery (this time with G) for its super scrumptious, crunchy and cheesy Classic Mac and Cheese. It is soooooo good that even G instantly became a fan! For our main course (!) G had the Bar Steakand I had the Eggs Ricotta Florentine. G thought the steak was so-so, but both of us agreed that the fries were perfectly crisp and thick. My eggs ricotta florentine was PACKED with flavor - from the creaminess of the ricotta, to the garlicky flavor of the spinach, to the herb flavor of the fried potatoes. It was definitely delicious but I was only able to finish half of my plate - next time I will be sharing this with a friend.
