i'll be visiting portland next week for the first time!!! what are some of your fave places to eat?
there are no bad places to eat in portland.
if i went to portland right now to get some food, i would stop by a number of breweries (breakside, ecliptic both have killer menus in north east and great beer), lardo for burgers, meat cheese bread for sammys, pok pok for fish wings; i would stand in the hour-long brunch lines for screen door and broder and no doubt the twenty thousand new brunch places that have opened up since i moved away in 2013. i would go from one food cart pod to the next (looks like cheese & crack, my go-to charcuterie lunch box opened up a store front! and koi fusion bulgogi burritos are a classic) and get one of everything. i would commit carb suicide on the domed grills offering endless pita at nicholas’ lebanese restaurant and eat approximately four mezza platters.
every place to eat in portland is a food adventure. have fun!!
