"A morning walk in the backyard full of harvesting and #morningthoughts. Tend to life, like you would a garden: respect the seasons, full moons, stay put on times of bad weather, go out an explore on those sunny days and alway water what you plant 🌱. We can't forget we are only human; mistakes, tears, and smiles... its both a blessing and a curse; to feel everything so very deeply. Cry it out, then refocus on to where you're headed. Take a break, be thankful for what you have and been through, miss those who are no longer with you, be grateful for those friends who stay close and keep moving forward. Life IS beautiful. Oh so beautiful!! ✌🏼+♥️ #berries🍓 #pdxnow"

"Who can honestly say that they don't like a churro??? 180 makes killer and super traditional churros at this spot and you can watch the crew make them in the open kitchen. My favorite was the churro filled with Dulce de Leche. Super crispy, yet tender outside, and just enough filling to make the overall texture perfect. "

"Loved this dish! The squid was super tender and the spicy aioli on top made me want more. The toasted noodles had the perfect texture. Such beautiful presentation as well!"

"The braised and grilled octopus is kind of hidden in this amazing potato purée and garlic emulsion with dots of black garlic purée. It all comes together perfectly in each bite. One of the best octopus dishes I have ever eate"
