I love shooting for the Willamette Week Cheap Eats Guide every year. Perhaps because it is so in line with my sensibilities. Those who know me, know I have a reputation for being a bit....thrifty (I find that word has a bit more dignity than cheap). And here I have a whole guide that says, "Hey Leah, it's ok you drink pabst. We get you." Some of the tasty highlights include Boke Bowl, Baowry, Helser's, the mini-food world that is Ocean and the new, but very popular kid on the block, Bar Dobre. Plus, I got to shoot the cover, which I always love. Can't beat that poppy yellow background (also known as poster board). Thanks to Lela's Bistro for providing the local and the slurpable noodles.
