Takeout for 6:30pm Amtrak trip PDX to SEA

  • 3

Going to spend a Saturday in PDX visiting the Portland Art Museum. Arriving 11am planning on lunch at Heathman (alternate sugestions welcome). Train back to SEA leaves at 6:30 pm. Is there someplace downtown or in the Pearl where we could pickup food appropriate for the train back.

Thanks.

  1. What road trip would be complete without a roach-coach?

    1. Kenny and Zukes has great takeout options. A fresh baked bagel or bialy with chicken salad (or chopped chicken liver, or egg salad) makes a wonderful train snack. They also have sides (cole slaw, potato salad) and tasty baked goods for dessert. I did this exact thing a couple of months ago on my train ride back to SEA from PDX. Much better than anything you can purchase on the train, and reasonably priced.

        I've found that their reuben travels better than the plain pastrami (the russian dressing helps to keep the sandwich from drying out).
