If you’ve worked up an appetite shopping at Powell’s, head over to Nong’s Khao Man Gai!
Simple Thai street food that packs a flavor punch!
The original location is on the east side.
1003 SW Alder St
Portland has suddenly become overrun with ramen restaurants.
We have 2 favorites:
Afuri is the Portland outpost of a Tokyo classic. Excellent cocktails, an extensive sake list, and a solid beer list complement the large menu which includes sushi, ramen, and more. You've gotta try the gyosa!
923 SE 7th Ave, Portland, OR 97214
Boxer Ramen is a more basic setup, but also quite tasty. Don't be turned off by the limited menu. Each option is well executed and you'll spend half as much as you would at Afuri. There are three locations around town.
NW23rd: 2309 NW Kearney St, Portland, OR 97210
Near Powell's: 1025 SW Stark St, Portland, OR 97205
NE Alberta: 2032 NE Alberta St, Portland, OR 97211
For fantastic pasta dishes made with seasonal ingredients, Grassa’s a fantastic spot. They constantly update their menu and also offer a decent rotating tap and wine list.
A casual dining spot, Grassa embraces a portland restaurant norm: order before taking a seat.
There are two locations. We prefer the NW 23rd locale.
