Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern is in town likeomgrightnow to shoot a Portland-themed episode of the popular Travel Channel show, and after some online buzz about possible shoot locations, looks like the Zimm himself is live-Tweeting his trip — unsurprisingly, with a focus on the city's meatier options.
Thus far, Zimmern's Portland itinerary has included stops to Olympic Provisions, Laurelhurst Market (where Zimmern touts a smoked balsamic-brined lamb as having "insane flavor"), Steven Smith Teamaker, and Beast (described as "just a jewel of an eatery"). As previously reported, he's filming at Lincoln today (where he's already Twatted a photo of tonight's dinner), and it looks like a stop at Nicky USA is also on the calendar.
What other Portland stops should be considered sufficiently Bizarre? Holler in the comments.
UPDATE: Zimmern's Tweeting major food porn — wild boar collar, fermented Thai sausage, Vietnamese wings — from Pok Pok.
