Portland Restaurant Recommendations

I’m going to update this from a previous post with all the food places I’ve either heard about or tried.


Waffle Window – I’ll have ice cream on my waffles for breakfast.  Thanks.  Been here lots of times.

Quick Lunch

Por que No – Really good carne asada tacos.  Two locations.

Bunk Sandwiches – Super good.  No space to eat inside but great to grab a great Sandwich.

Kenny and Zuke’s – People love this place.  I think its pretty good.  Big sandwich.

Dinner or Big lunches

Asian Style

Bamboo Sushi – Awesome sushi and kobe beef hamburgers.  Love this place.  Get both.

Lucky Strike – Never been here, but hear its fantastic.

Italian & Mediterianian Style

A Cena – Loved this place.

Serrato – Looks good.  Can’t remember if I ate here or not.  I think I did.

A Pizza Scholls – Probably the best pizza in Portland or the world.

Piazza Italia

Mucca Osteria


Jake’s Famous Crawfish


Western Asianish

Marrakesh – Belly dancers?  Eating on the floor?  Eat with your fingers?  Yes.

East India Co. – Even my Indian friends admit you can’t even get Indian food this good in India.


Paley’s – Want to know the name of the chicken you are eating?  Where it grew up?

Screen Door – Southern Cuisine.  Loved it.  Don’t remember much more than that.

Cafe Castagna – Northwest Cuisine.  Good hamburgers.  Also Pigs feet if you like that too.

Andina – Peruvian something.  Lamb was incredible.

Ice Cream

Salt N Straw


Bluestar.  Don’t buy the hype of Voodoo.  These are way better.

Up North

If you are staying in Vancouver and don’t mind a quick trip east, check out LaPella.  Pretty good.  My wife and I ate there 2 weeks ago.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
