Local Flavor: Salt & Straw

While in Oregon we were lucky enough to have a few short hours in Portland and A and I decided to check out Salt & Straw which is a “farm to cone” ice-cream parlor. Not only is the inside totally my style and absolutely adorable–chock full of vintage ice-cream memorabilia, their ice-cream is incredible.

I am one loyal fan of Fentons in Oakland but this place rivals the Bay Area parlor for sure. I always love a business with an ampersand, but the flavors of their all natural ice-cream are so inventive and delicious!

Here A and I are enjoying our made in-house waffle cones with a scoop of cinnamon snicker-doodle and almond brittle with salted ganache (respectively) and since we were wanting the full experience we topped them with their incredible home-made caramel sauce!

I honestly can’t even describe how good these were in words, only happy guttural sounds. Cannot wait until we can come back again. There’s a certain little biscuit shop we already have plans to hit up next time we’re in Portland too!
