These suggestions aren't groundbreaking or ultra-insider with many topping Portland visitor lists. But I'm here to confirm that they are indeed worth your time.
Nong's Khao Man Gai for kick ass chicken and rice. Head to the SE Ankey St. location if you would rather eat on a table than in the street.
Multnomah Whiskey Library for the classiest drink experience.
Olympia Provisions for meat and cheese, AKA my favourite things.
Tasty n Alder for brunch. Go early or be prepared to wait. The Korean Fried Chicken is my suggestion to you.
Pok Pok PDX to eat spicy food in what feels like someone's house. Make a reso, thank me later.
Stars Antiques Mall for the most successful vintage shopping (for us, anyway).
Public Domain was our go-to for coffee, but good coffee is not something Portland lacks, so go wild exploring this one.
