Eats & Drinks

A shortlist of our favorite spots in beautiful, sunny Portland, Oregon.

Bamboo Sushi

Sustainbly sourced sushi. Try the Green Machine, California Sunset, and the spicy cauliflower.

🍣

Blue Star Donuts

Show up early to grab a hard apple cider fritter or a buttermilk old-fashioned. They go fast.

🍩

Bollywood Theater

You can’t go wrong with this Indian street food. The kati roll and pork vindaloo are out of this world. For extra credit grab a G&T, Emily’s favorite in town.

🥘

Boxer Ramen

A simple menu that really hits the spot. Order a round of okonomiyaki tots and the sesame greens to share.

🍜

Grassa

Their menu rotates frequently, but the handmade pasta is always delicious. Try the crispy pork ravioli or the pork belly mac & cheese if you can.

🍝

Hale Pele

The best damn stripmall tiki bar in all of NE Portland.

🍹

Ken’s Artisan Pizza

Wood-fired pizza, arguably the best in Portland—or at least we think so. The Handmade and the old-fashioned are both exceptional.

🍕

Nong’s Khao Man Gai

Nong’s serves only one dish—Thai chicken and jasmine rice—but the secret is in the sauce, so be sure to order extra.

🐓

Piazza Italia

Family-owned Italian comfort food. The lasagna will blow your hair back.

🍝

Portland Bottle Shop

Our go-to neighborhood joint, absolutely nowhere near our neighborhood. Grab a pint or glass of wine, some Old Bay fries, and maybe play a hand or two.

🍻

Taquería Nueve

The crispy wild boar carnitas and seasonal vegetal tacos are Ashur’s favorites.
