FYI to locals... Dunderdon has most of their stock at 50% off. If you've wanted something, you should stop by and pick it up.

Oh good, we're doing the food thing again! I love that discussion.

 

The best meal I've had in Portland was at Beast.

 

Other places serving some of the most exciting food in town (in my opinion): Ox (if you like meat), Aviary, Wafu (in addition to best-in-Portland ramen, some of their small plates are amazeballs: fried pork belly onigiri with bonito flakes), Ha and VL (ridiculously good soup), June (rather under the radar), Tanuki (but only with groups of four or less)

 

I think Screen Door is way overrated, especially for dinner. There are better brunches at Clyde Common, Accanto, Simpatica...

 

Andina is always really good. Nostrana is also on my always-good list.

 

I think Bunk and Lardo are overrated, and would rather eat a sandwich from Meat Cheese Bread or Double Dragon. As long as I'm talking about sandwiches: Portland Penny Diner was super disappointing.

 

 

New and buzzy: Ava Gene's, Blue Star Donuts, Raven and Rose

Also noteworthy: Tannery Bar

Soon to be new and buzzy: Roosevelt, Levant, Racion

 

 

Man, I don't know, there are so many good things to eat here.

And what's up with Screen Door's brunch? Is it worth the 3 hour wait (decided to bail on that one)?
My eating adventure:
DOC
Broder
PBJ's
Salt & Straw
Cool Moon Ice Cream
Grand Central Bakery
Waffle Window
Grilled Cheese Grill
St. Jacks
Yakuza
Toro Bravo (highly recommend the $30 tasting menu)
Tasty n' Sons (Burmese Red Pork Stew is the bizz-nuss)
Bunk Bar/Sandwich
Solstice (on the Washington border...amazing pizza)
Double Mountain Brewery (Hood River)
Mo's (near the coast....sucked balls)

I drank so much damn coffee. Barista, Stumptown, Coava, Water Ave, Ristretto...and all those food cart "villages" are so dope. Man, you guys are lucky.

Got to see all the regular shops. Has anyone checked out Lizard Lounge lately? They have some good sizes (meaning, my size and around that) on some Quoddy ring moccasins for 50% off.

And the girls I saw were a lot more attractive that I remembered! Maybe because the sun was out and they decided to show their faces.

Spending 5 days there. This is a good food guideline!

I'll be in Portland for 8 days next month, I think I'll use this guidline as well.

can we talk brewery?

Upright is my new ritual. Playin Bones, jazz, and incredible beer for 3$.

Anyone been to commons new place?

The base camp brewery is interesting. seems like they missed an opportunity to make a really cool spot, but ended up with REI corporate headquarters.
Not a bad place by any means, and fine beer, but a little off.

Should I rent a car? I'll be staying near Pioneer square. Some of these places looks too far to walk and too expensive to Cab.

Gigantic is putting out some pretty great stuff, too. Not a brewery, but Beer opened up and is a pretty great place to drink, well... beer. In addition to taps, they have a good bottle selection.

Pioneer is in the heart of downtown. Which means almost everything in SW or NW are really easy to get to. Portland also has good public transportation, if you're willing to do that. Anything in SE west of, say, 50th shouldn't take too long on a single bus---the same goes for N. I'm not familiar with the bus lines that run in NE. If you go this route and have an iPhone, download the PDX Bus app (it's free).

Rental is car is not really necessary if your primary destinations are close in. And cabs are pretty reasonable here. That said, sometimes you can get absurdly cheap rental cars, and parking in Portland is pretty easy (or cheap at many lots) so if it's no big deal, a car can be nice.

We're big fans of Upright. We're in the same basement space as their brewery. Good people, good beer. Alex and his crew are proper beer aficionado's.

Get a zip car or something like that... rent a bike. Portland is extremely flat and easy to navigate especially if you aren't going all over the city.

Seriously though, rent a car and drive to the high desert, the coastal beaches or even up to Mt Hood. Each of those is less than 2 hours away.

I don't believe so... at least, I haven't heard that it has. But I also haven't tried going. Clyde Common is definitely worth a trip, though.

Yah, been to Clyde Common a bunch of times. Really good.

You Portlanders need to come down to SF and eat at Cafe Baonecci in North Beach. Some of the best italian you'll have in the United States.

I wouldn't say Portland is great for italian food.
