New to SE Portland
Just moved, what are some of your favorite restaurants, bars, grocery stores, meat butchers, bakeries? I like it all. Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Greek, Mexican, anything you can think of that's in the SE. Or if it's not too far away in Portland. Just moved from Eugene. Also, know of any places that you can fill a corny keg? We really liked Lochmead farms milk, what are some local milk that's good in Portland?!
True, True! I live on 31st. So, Division is pretty close. Maybe a ten minute walk or so. I am in search of a meat market that is close by and isn't super expensive like the woodsmen. Thank you all for your suggestions! I am looking for a meat market to buy prime rib for Christmas, or pork belly.
Yeah, Like Leonardo said, SE is pretty big...are you looking for stuff east or west of 39th? How far north or south? "Or if it's not too far away..." - huh? really?
You'll get better responses if you are more specific. My holding pattern at work, is your luck today. ;o)
My GF has a milk subscription for unpasteurized milk from Deck Family Farm (you have to call them directly - technically, you rent a share of the cow). We pick up a half gallon (the minimum) in a canning jar every Sat. from a cooler in a neighbor's driveway on SE 72nd just north of Division. I believe that they have other pick-up sites, but that is the one near us in SE. I'm not a huge milk drinker, but she is and she LOVES it.
