Believe it or not, I didn’t just drink non stop while in Hood River.
After our wine tasting adventures, we went and got changed, and hit up Nora’s Table
We actually had tried to go last year, but learned Valentines Day + Long weekend + Saturday night = no tables. And we’re not good at waiting. This year, we got reservations.
Was it worth waiting a year to try? Heck yes.
For starters, they have Double Mountain on tap. So basically you could’ve served the fiance zucchini and olives covered in mushrooms and he wouldn’t complain.
I had wine.
They brought out some bread with deliciousness
I honestly have no clue what all was in the deliciousness, but it was good!
We got the Nosh Plate as an appetizer
House made chorizo, house made pickled veggies, cheese…
I seriously had to FIGHT the fiance for those carrots. Amazing. He wouldn’t shut up about them… the whole drive home the next day was “how do you think they make those carrots?” and “can we try and make those?”
The fiance had filet with foie gras butter and purple potatoes.
Steak + purple potatoes = happy man
I got the crispy arctic char with Israeli couscous
Heaven friends, heaven. The char had a delicious crispy salty top, and the couscous had a nice cinnamon-y sweetness. Some sweet + some salty? Yes please!
Since it was Valentine’s Day, we got some bubbly
And had yummy chocolate cake, with tropical fruit on top
Notice how we clearly had already started devouring it before the picture was taken?
Then we thought, how should we end the night?
And hit up Double Mountain for one last drink
(Tasting, to make sure the beer was still delicious. It was)
The next morning fresh air was the best idea ever, so we took a walk along the river
And I do still want to figure out how to make those pickled carrots.
