You guys will not believe how many emails I get about my recommendations for Portland Restaurants! I get around to my fair share of places here, so instead of writing email after email saying the same thing, I thought I would do a post about it, google map included! Hot diggity dog! I’ve been to all of these places and the honorable mentions at the bottom are places I’ve heard about that I’m hoping to get to in the next few months. Dig in and enjoy!
Tasty n’ Alder– brunch is awesome here! The biscuit sandwiches are pretty stellar!
Salt & Straw–amazing ice cream with funky flavors, this has quickly become a Portland MUST!
Pine State Biscuits–was featured on diners, drive-ins and dives! I like the Reggie 🙂
Screen Door–get in line early because you’ll be waiting for a while. I’d highly recommend the praline bacon!
Tilt–awesome burgers, onion rings, tots and PIE! The pie crust is tah-die-for!
Lardo-truffle fries, ya’ll! And the cold fried chicken sandwich is pretty tasty too!
Blue Star Doughnuts–just, YES. Get here early!
Pok Pok–just get the chicken wings. And order a ton! They are basically coated in caramel. HEAVEN is what they are.
Ken’s Artisan Pizza–wood fired pizza with amazing crusts.
Little Big Burger–smaller burgers with big flavor! The house-made fry sauce is seriously awesome too…and that’s coming from a girl who hates fry sauce.
Papa Hayden–come here for dessert! The dessert menu is basically endless. Mmm….
Gruner–a German restaurant with awesome spatzle!
Podnah’s Pit–BBQ! The brisket and green chile mac and cheese is pretty stellar. Just sayin’.
Two Tarts Bakery–cute, mini desserts! I love the oreos, carrot cake whoopie pies and cheesecake brownies.
Saint Cupcake–one of my favorite cupcake shops in downtown PDX! Simple and tasty.
Waffle Window–this is literally a window in the side of a building. Savory and sweet options here that is great for kids.
