100 Things to Eat and Drink In Portland

  • 6

Inspired by similar links for LA, SF and San Diego, and with the help of some buddies of mine, I've compiled a list of 100 Things to Eat and Drink in Portland. I think it's useful for locals and tourists alike, as it gets a representative cross section of all the great things the city has to offer. In the same sense that there are tourist-traps, I also feel that there are local-traps, and so I avoided those (PQN is a very specific example, given that there are great Mexican options elsewhere.) I also tried to make sure to get a variety of different things to eat, because no one wants to see a list of burgers and tacos anyway.

  1. #101 - Iced Chocolate from Sahagun.

    1. re: Simpatico

      Totally agree about the Iced Chocolate at Sahagun. It is vegan, creamy, chocolaty (half the chocolate of the hot chocolate yet still plenty!), and my favorite new cold drink in memory!

    2. This is totally awesome.
      Thanks for posting this.

      Anyone want to step up to challenge of doing something like this for Seattle?

      1. re: GreenYoshi

        Hehe, I'm working on that one too. Expect to see chicky pub, armour bowl of noodles, vivace latte, uli's sausage, oaxacan tlayudas, roasted bone marrow, medianoche sandwich, a cocktail from zigzag, etc etc etc.

      2. Could you put a warning on that not to read it if you're hungry? I didn't get much lunch today, and after reading this I'm just about dying.

        1. For Broder...IMHO their potato pancake should replace the smoked trout hash (which is very good). Seriously - if the grill cook is being gentle with the potato pancakes they are revelatory.
