I lived in Portugal 20 years ago and Lisbon was a city of which I have many fun memories. I'm FINALLY getting back for a visit in a few months, so I'm trying to remember the old (like CENTURIES old) faves, as well as check out all the new things which have appeared in recent years (hello vegan sushi and drag queen cooking classes!). Staying in a 5th floor walkup with no elevator, so I'll be sure to work up an appetite for eleventy million pastéis de nata.
Honestly a trip to Astoria is worth it for Frite & Scoop alone, but here are a few more fun stops, since they don't let you go up to the Goonies house anymore!! If you go the right time of year, the sea lions will be waiting for you, just listen for their barking and meander down the Astoria Riverwalk til you find a couple hundred of them in a pile!
My cousin Sarah is the type of dinner party guest who would stop at all six neighborhood ice cream joints to bring you a Capitol Hill ice cream tasting buffet! She has more fun & tasty recommendations for you at SeattleBySarah.com and one time she made an entire dress out of sprinkles and clear tape.
