Portland's food scene has a couple of trends worth being excited about -- and the craft, small-batch ice cream shops that are springing up all over and creating delicious products certainly rank way up there.
I recently got into the ice cream trenches (including splitting 10 kids' size servings with my girlfriend in a single afternoon -- a tough job, but someone's gotta do it) to delve into some of Portland's finest flavors. Take a look through synopses of the Top 10 shops in Portland, as well as more in-depth looks at dairy dessert powerhouses Ruby Jewel and Salt & Straw.
More in-depth reviews coming soon, once I burn off some of these extra calories. Did I miss an important Portland ice cream institution? Let us know about your favorites in the comments below.
