I think I’ve seen just about everything that Portland has to offer over the last week, so I wasn’t sure what I’d do today. I got about 45 minutes of sleep, and that happened right before housekeeping kicked me out of the hotel room. Needless to say, I’m a little… disoriented right now.
So I checked my bags at the front desk and trooped around Portland for one last day.
My first stop was for lunch since I’d missed breakfast while helping the BF get to the airport in the morning. I’d read good things about Nong’s Khao Man Gai, and it just so happened that Nong has a cart at the Portland State campus, just minutes from the hotel. So I traipsed through the campus and masqueraded as a college kid for a while. I seem to have fit right in. :) I ordered the khao man gai, which is a Thai dish of poached chicken breast, rice, and broth. Sounds bland and boring, but it was rather tasty. Plus, there’s a ginger-pepper sauce that comes with it, so that livens it up a bit. My stomach was really off today (no doubt due to eating out all week), so the bland-ish food actually hit the spot.
Later in the day, after wandering around for a few hours, I stopped and got a Greenleaf green juice (the namesake one), just for kicks. It was surprisingly spicy, and it made me feel a little better. I’ve decided that the prescription for making myself feel better and allowing myself to maybe possibly sleep when I get back to Pgh is to OD on veggies over the next 24 hours or so. I’m sure there are worse prescriptions.
Finally, for dinner, I grabbed a chili veggie bowl with quinoa from Prasad and took it back to the hotel. Now I’m sitting here in the lobby, passing the time until my train to the airport comes. Next stop: Pittsburgh! But not until tomorrow morning. :(
Wish me luck in not being super-cranky tomorrow at work.
