214 S.W. Broadway
Portland, Oregon 
Closed Sundays and Mondays

 Saucebox had been on my list for quite a long time
and finally during the month of March with the Portland Dining discount
off I went.  It didn't disappoint.
The service was the highlight, very well taken care of.
The food was delicious.

Little Bird Bistro

 Dinner at Little Bird was the best treat I have had
in a long time.  The service, atmosphere, and food
were truly amazing.
 The appetizer was pork belly bilini's.
 Cod was hiding under those beans.
 Olive oil cake with rhubarb.
Normally I don't like rhubarb, but this was delicious too.
Since it was my birthday there were two tiny macarons 
at the end of the meal.  
This is a definite repeat.

March is Portland Dining Month,
so many restaurants including Little Bird have
a special menu for $29 each person.
Definitely makes it worth trying some restaurants you
haven't visited yet.

Portland Children's Museum

This museum had been on my list for a long time.
Finally made it there this week, to the delight of one little boy.
There were colors and light to delight.
A crocodile to brush the teeth or maybe to rest in his mouth.
So much more to discover including a train,
a room to wear a hard hat and dig, class with
building and clay, a water room to get the hands wet.
For little ones I recommend going on a week day,
as weekends can get very busy.
They are open from 9AM-5PM daily.
Location: 4015 S.W. Canyon Rd., Portland, Oregon

La Calaca Comelona

 La Calaca Comelona
2304 S.E. Belmont, Portland, OR
It is not your normal Mexican restaurant with a plate
full of runny refried beans and rice.
 The portions are more than adequate.
A very different menu.
Not overly spicy, but quite tasty.
I had read several times online and in my local newspaper
about this restaurant and finally stopped in for a meal.
I wasn't disappointed.
