I am taking my Manhattan-born and bred boyfriend on a trip to the Northwest for his birthday (he's never been west of St. Louis) - we will have 2 days in Portland, 1 day in Eugene (my family), a trip to the coast (Devil's Elbow, my favorite place in the whole world!) and 2 days in Ashland (his family) before driving down to San Francisco for 4 nights.
We are two foodies who love going off the beaten path for anything. Neither one of us eats pork, however. What are your favorites in these places, or along the way? Any recs for great food along the path of our trip would be greatly appreciated. I will be reading the board as well!
