In a city that takes its beer, food trucks, and donuts quite seriously, locavore Portland is giving increasing attention to ice cream. At Salt & Straw, you can order scoops flavored with the local microbrews, as well as gourmet staples such as balsamic strawberry with cracked pepper. At Ruby Jewel, if you struggle to choose among the flavors—brown sugar sour cream or caramel with salted dark chocolate—you can order a wine-bar-style flight of six mini-scoops, great for sharing.
