thank you Man Vs. Food!

saturday was an epic day for Matt.
we love love love watching the show Man Vs. Food on the travel channel and love love love even more trying to go to the places that Adam Richman has eaten at.
in fact, when we took our trip to Portland last year our number one priority was hitting 2 of the places that Adam went.

Voodoo Doughnut

Matt got the famous Voodoo doughnut and i got an oreo one which was gross so i sneaked bites of Matt's gooey delicious voodoo!

this place is one of those places that earns the term "wonderfully weird."
and if the workers didn't make you feel like a total moron for asking what kind of doughnut that one in the case was it would be the best doughnut shop in the world!

and the Stepping Stone Cafe.
they're famous for their gigantic stack of mancakes but there's no way i was going to attempt to eat those bad boys.
i'm just not that hard core.

but this place was incredible!
their slogan is "you eat here because we let you".
it had that diner feel that i would imagine you would feel if you could go to Luke's Diner from Gilmore Girls.
and to me they will always be famous for their AMAZINGLY SCRUMDIDLYUMPTIOUS hot chocolate!
in a mug that i honestly thought about stealing.

both suggestions came from the great Adam Richman and we salute him for his impeccable taste.
which brings me back to Saturday.
Adam's impeccableness does it again.

Los Reyes de la Torta
in english means heavenly mexican food that is way too far away from our home.
on Man Vs. Food, Adam talks about the Torta Del Rey which is a burger filled with fried beef, ham, egg, chorizo, hot dogs, cheese, avocado and who knows what else!

oh and they weigh it in at over 2 1/2 pounds.

and who conquered those 2 1/2 pounds??
picture or it didn't happen?

first Matt sized up his opponent.
let it know who's boss.
and then he murdered it!

all 2 1/2 pounds of it!

was he excited about his achievement?
was he excited about his achievement about 2 hours later?
apparently what Man Vs. Food doesn't tell you is that you will be hurting and not able to eat anything else for the rest of the day if you finish the Torta Del Rey.
but when i asked Matt if it was worth it he said ohhhhhhh yeah!
and he's already made plans to return again with my brother.
crazy boy.
