Vital update regarding Barack Obama's visit to NE Portland's Gateway Breakfast House: Presidential blogger Obama Foodorama reports that Obama ordered a grilled cheese (on white bread) and split pea soup only after being pushed by longtime manager Mary Cook. The encounter: "And he said 'are you trying to get me fat?'" Cook related. "And I said no, I'm trying to sell food." The post notes that Obama "essentially nibbled on his lunch." [Obamafoodorama]
