Dinner near Papa Hadyn?
I am visiting Portland for a day and a half and would like to end my evening at Papa Hadyn for dessert. I also need to pick up some provisions at TJ's for the rest of my trip. I'd like to keep dinner somewhere between $10-15 or if there is good place for even less I am game. Alcoholic beverage not included. I have pretty diverse tastes, I love sushi, Chinese, Mediterranean (N. African, Middle Eastern etc.) and Thai food. I like French and American comfort food (hamburgers, fried chicken, mac and cheese). Though I like Mexican, Indian and Italian it is not usually something I seek out on vacation as I eat a lot of it at home. I am flexible with my schedule, I tend to eat early so happy hour and early bird specials would work out nice. But I could eat later too. Additionally I am taking public transportation. In the past I've enjoyed Mother's Bistro, Andina and Wildwood. BTW are there any magazines with restaurant reviews and other tourist info that is geared for the more hip/edgey chowhound? Thanks

If you mean the Papa Haydn on NW 23rd (the original location is in SE Portland), then how about Red Onion Thai at 2rd and Northrup? I think Paley's Place on NW 21st has a hamburger, so that might quality for French comfort food. There's also Bewon for Korean on NW 23rd, which is good. You'll be pretty challenged to stay within that price range at any of those, but you'll probably get the most food for that money at Red Onion.

What about doing an omakase meal at Tanuki for $15? Of course since it's a bar it would only be appropriate to order some sake to go along with that, but I think you'll get a good variety of Japanese/izakaya dishes that will definitely be fulfilling.
