The Food: Sushi and then Palets des Fleurs

Portland has some of the best restaurants in the country.  The culinary skills this little city offers has no bounds and will sure make your taste buds spark!  For a city our size, you can find delectable tastes from almost every part of the globe.  Lately... the buzz has been over our selection of tasty Southern comfort foods as well as unique Thai palates.  

Today, we decided Japanese was our calling.  Stopped in at masu and ordered our favorites 
from any Japanese sushi shop:

Salmon nigiri
Spider roll

Opted to try masu's specialty:
japanista (spicy crab, spicy tuna, and kawaire seared with seared hamachi, cilantro and red jalapenos.

And for desert? Stopped in at Cacao Drink Chocolate for some boutique chocolates.  This Palets des Fleurs is amazing.  Candied ginger, lavender and dried cranberries topped off the dark slightly bitter chocolate, a perfect balance.
