YouTube: St. Patrick's Day; Taco Bell; Doritos

For those not in the know, it's been a crazy past three weeks for me because I've started a new full-time job. I've still managed to get some time in to film my usual spicy food stunts. However, I obviously don't have as much time on my hands to edit the video.

Hawaiian Style Grill

Hawaiian Style Grill has two locations: one on E Fourth Plain in Vancouver, Washington; and a newer second location on N Killingsworth in Portland, Oregon. The Portland spot opened next to Portland Community College last month (on February 13), and I stopped by the next day.

Mac! Mac & Cheesery (Part 2)

(Original Review -- October 2011)

My poutine travels took me back to Mac! on Valentine's Day 2013. After all, I've developed quite an affection for the comfort food dish. But here, I had a take on poutine I never had before.

Viking Soul Food (Part 2)

(UPDATE: Viking Soul Food closed their cart at the end of April 2014. They plan to reopen as a catering-only business in the future.)

(Original Review -- August 2011)

I find it remarkable that it had been so long since I've visited Viking Soul Food. I finally got some food here back in late January. In particular, some lefse specials had caught my eye. This food cart moved to the Good Food Here pod in 2012.

A lot has gone on in my world over the last two weeks. I've gained a bunch of subscribers, and I again thank everyone for watching my videos! One video in particular became a giant hit on my channel, thanks to some great timing and shameless promoting.
