Watched Somebody Feed Phil S5 – Portland

Watched Somebody Feed Phil from

“Everybody Loves Raymond” creator Phil Rosenthal travels the globe to take in the local cuisine and culture of Bangkok, Lisbon, Mexico City and more.

We enjoy travel – food feature shows — we watch lots of Food Ranger — and since we got Netflix for a month to watch Stranger Things figured we’d try this show out. Seemed entertaining enough, I’d watch another episode. Never saw Everybody Loves Raymond so don’t know how the humor matches up. There was one weirdly long reminiscence scene where he calls up a friend (who’s an actor on Stranger Things) and tell uncomfortable jokes in honor of his father? Maybe I missed something.

Despite living in Seattle since 2008, the only times I’ve been to Portland were in high school for a student journalism conference, where I loved the city, and after college on the drive back to California, when we slept on a friend of a friend’s couch and it was super awkward and I did not love the city. We were hoping to go in 2020 to check out the food truck scene but COVID — so it was fun if bittersweet to watch someone else check out the food truck scene 😉 We really need to make it down there some time.
