Single (budget) dinner in Portland + drinks afterward?

Hello all, my girlfriend and I will be in town tomorrow evening, arriving late (probably around 8pm - I see many recommendations for happy hour, but we can't make it), for just one night, leaving in the morning. We're basically just passing through. We were hoping to find a single can't-miss dinner while in PDX, but are hoping to spend around $20 or less per plate.

Afterwards we'd love to find a bar that has a really great beer selection, both domestic and imported, with a fun or unique vibe. We're staying near the airport but have a vehicle and don't mind driving around (within say 10 miles).

We're a late 20's couple who love all types of food, any cuisine, especially things that are adventuresome or unique. We love to try -anything- at least once! And the same goes for our beer/wine/drink choices.

The last time we were in Portland we stopped by Tanuki and had an absolutely amazing time, shutting down the bar, but sadly I hear they've closed...

  1. Hey,
    You might want to try Spints. Good food, drinks, and ales.

    1. you should check out Chiang Mai on Hawthorne...they have delicious Thai that you cannot find in most places,
      and then go to Apex on Division for great beer, great selection and a non smoking outdoor patio
      ..or up the block from there, Whiskey Soda Lounge for drinking vinegars
