Chef Kristen Murray is bringing the PDX what her team is calling a "pastry luncheonette".
Pono Farm Soul Kitchen books itself as Japanese soul food, although there’s certainly some French influence. The menu is divided into your choice of protein, but there are plenty of vegetarian or seafood options, including an entire sushi menu too.
This Russian eatery is brought to you by the team behind Oven & Shaker. Lots of knickknacks litter the area while lace curtains allow just enough natural light in to not feel dark. The menu has plenty of hearty fare, and of course, vodka.
Life of Pie could easily take the, uh, cake, for NoPo’s go-to pizza joint: the sauce is tangy and sweet, crust appropriately charred and chewy.
Tidbit makes this list not only because it offers beer via the services of Scout Beer Garden, but because its roster of carts with Pyro Pizza, Love Belizean, Ingrid’s, and many more.
A successful Kickstarter campaign funded this little taco joint. Located in the rapidly evolving area tentatively called “south eastside industrial” this spot can credit itself for inspiring Portland’s taco craze.
Housed inside a weathered shack in Eliot, The People's Pig serves near-sinful barbecue, including a next-level smoked fried chicken sandwich that requires you wear anything but white. The crispy-skinned chicken thighs are smoked to perfection and coated in a house-made jalapeño jelly that you'll want to lick every last dollop of and jar for yourself. While this hefty creation is the star (did we mention it's served on charred sourdough?), there are plenty of pig-centric options too, like baby back ribs and pork shoulder. Meat isn't everything here though, considering the cast-iron cornbread trickled with honey will visit your dreams for nights to come.
This resto is making Newberg more than a place to stop for gas on the way to wine country with great Texas-style brisket, as well as ribs that put all those in Portland to shame. We think that Storrs Smokehouse serves up the best barbecue in Portland, therefore you need to add this place to your Portland food bucket list.
