  1. Not much in outer suburban wasteland, but I'll try.
    Ikenohana for sushi on Murray.

    In central Beav there are more options, but that's more than ten minutes away.

    1. sesame donuts can satisfy the breakfast/dessert/coffee needs in a pinch, and they produce a donut far superior to the much-hyped voodoo. if you like microbrews, raccoon lodge is a block away from sesame and creates some really unique beer. both of these spots should be about 6-7 minutes drive from you.

      1. re: goodbyeohio

        Have no idea if this fits within your 5-10 minute rule, but very good Thai (and some Lao) can be found at Rama Thai, 12874 SW Canyon Rd. Many of their specials are written in Thai on the wall, so let's assume they are not catering only to a non-Thai clientele. I've found the food to be above average for Portland, the Isaan (or Lao?) sausage is great. Nice Korean (made, I think, by Chinese) at Du Kuh Bee located at 12590 SW 1st St...get the spicy pork noodles...the noodles are hand pulled to order. A gem, but does it fit the 10 minute max travel time? Well, I drive 20-25 minutes from Woodstock, so, I guess you have to be the judge. It's worth the trip for me....

      2. Hehe, Du Kuh Bee. Guess the cat is definitely out of the bag now.

        Lots of good spots in the Tron. My faves are Best Baguette, Nakwon, Yuzu and Chennai Masala where I get my banh mi, Korean noodles, Japanese pub, and South Indian food, respectively.

        1. What kind of places did you like to eat while you were living in the Pearl? And you never once visited Beaverton? (--suspicious--)

          1. I'm vouching for sesame donuts. Also, Thai orchid is great for Thai, also thai roses is good in Raligh hills.
