Gluttony In The Pacific Northwest
|bring on the giant bowl of seafood|
On a recent visit to the U.S. I decided to do a little photographic essay of all the delicious and not super healthy food I ate. I know that it is possible to eat healthy in the U.S. but why? If in the U.S. for a visit one might as experience a bit of gluttony.
The main thing I was looking forward to eating was Mexican food. The Mexican options in Dublin are limited and what is available would hardly be considered Mexican. More like Mexican themed.

|Late night Tacos by Taco Slime – low quality because they are open late yet somehow taste good after a few drinks.|
The best Mexican food of course comes from food trucks and a friend took me to one that was fantastic. Little corn tortilla tacos that I wanted to continue to eat but had to force myself to stop eating so as to not die from gluttony. They were so delicious in fact that I forgot to take a picture of them.
The next on the list of foods that I can’t get in Ireland is a proper chicken teriyaki. So of course this was my lunch for a couple of days.
Most days involved a proper breakfast.

|Massively unnecessary soda|
|Chowder and a delicious beer at the Rogue Brewery in Astoria, Oregon.|
I asked an Irish friend once if he knew of any places I could get a french dip in Dublin. He didn’t know what one was. This my friend is a French Dip!
|The Super Bird. A chicken burger and a drink at the movie theater, while watching the movie.|
|We ate fancy food as well.|
|and drank good wine.|
In Ireland they have great quality meat, cows that graze on grass, and then they over cook it to a point of chewy beef jerky.
This is what a steak should look like and taste like Ireland.
|So juicy, so tender.|
|At the airport for the flight back it seemed necessary to eat some vegetables.|
