Great Scoop In Eugene, OR: Red Wagon Creamery

Everywhere we went in Eugene, folks mentioned Red Wagon Creamery. "It's the best ice cream in Oregon," more than a few people said. "It's the best ice cream in the West," said others. We tried to get a scoop at the Lane County farmers' market, but Red Wagon was away at an event for March of Dimes. Their little mobile shop next to The Party Cart was closed as well.

Portland, Oregon: Moody's Donuts

Its funnel-like reservoir drops batter (a rice- and wheat-flour blend) into a narrow channel of oil, and, like clockwork, little flippers rise from the oil, turning the cake donuts and sending them on their way.
