I always enjoy visiting the Lan Su Chinese Garden with the juxtaposition of lush greenery and geometric city buildings. It’s amazing that such a small space can feel so removed while it’s right in the middle of the city! The Tao of Tea tea house is a treat for relaxing and enjoying the view.

Lan Su Chinese garden and Portland city grill
Last year I celebrated my anniversary at the Lan Su Chinese garden and Portland city grill and it was such a wonderful day/evening that I decided to do it again this year!
Lan Su Chinese garden
The Lan Su Chinese garden is an amazing juxtaposition of the downtown skyscrapers with the relaxing atmosphere of the garden.
We indulged in tea at the Tao of Tea teahouse. It’s so relaxing to view the garden through the teahouse window.
The Rose Petal Black tea was so deliciously sweet! It had almost a honey-ish flavor to it.
I always enjoy the artistic nature of the Lake Tai rock structures throughout the garden.
Take the virtual tour of the garden for yourself!
Portland city grill
The food is delicious and the service impeccable at the Portland city grill. We were lucky this year and got a window seat. What a beautiful view of the city.
The Apple candied hazelnuts and gorgonzola salad was a lovely way to start dinner and the salmon and pork chops were delicious as well.
