So, finally, FINALLY! We went to Laurelhurst Market a couple of weeks ago. Oh, it was so good! I loved everything I ate except for two things: the fries (not crisp enough for me) and the shortbread on the dessert was nothing special. But every other single thing was delicious. I am in love with the polenta. And my steak was wonderful and the olive oil ice cream was mmmm!!!
I can’t contain myself any longer…let’s go straight to the pictures!

The mountain of meat jwa ordered: Grilled Niman Prime Ribeye — Blue Cheese Butter, Fried Sweet Onion Rings.
omg – the best polenta ever! Fried Anson Mills Polenta with Creamed Corn & Bacon.
Pommes Frites: needs more crispy!
The awesome steak I ordered: the Flat Iron with the chard…
Dessert: Arbequina Olive Oil Ice Cream with berries and thyme shortbread. The olive oil was also drizzled over the ice cream and this was just delicious! One of the best desserts I’ve ever gotten. I did think the shortbread was a bit disappointing. My shortbread is pretty good…so when I go out, I expect better shortbread because I am seriously no shortbread expert.
But really, this was one of the best meals out we’ve had in a long time! I can’t wait to go back again.
