While people seek many different things when they travel, there’s one constant: Everybody’s got to eat. In Portland, that simple fact offers three opportunities a day — at least — to discover the city, indulge in fresh ingredients grown right here, and connect with people passionate about what they do and where they live. This food scene is as accessible as Portland itself, where light rail and streetcar lines connect diverse neighborhoods. And our favorite dishes are all over the map, coming from food carts, James Beard Award-winning restaurants, farmers’ market vendors and one iconic doughnut shop (see page 27). Want to taste all that Portland — and Oregon — has to offer? Don’t miss our international food festival, Feast Portland, which returns Sept. 20-23, 2013 (see p. 13). Of course, there’s much more to Portland than fantastic food. Between meals, you can indulge in tax-free shopping at unique independent shops, vintage stores and more (pp. 17, 65), keep kids of all ages entertained (p. 73) and explore the distinct areas of town (p. 33), including the growing Central Eastside, now connected to downtown by streetcar (p. 14). And, as much as we love our city, we wholeheartedly encourage you to get out of town to explore the amazing wine country, gorge, mountain and coastline that are all within easy reach of Portland. Find inspiration starting on page 45. We hope the details you find in this guide will whet your appetite. Portland looks forward to sharing a meal with you soon!

  6. 6. Alberta street’s last thursday art walk contents Features 33 45 Great Plates Street Scene Around the Region With no sales tax, your money goes further in Portland — and with the city’s abundance of talented designers, there’s no shortage of seriously cool, locally made goods that serve as unforgettable souvenirs. Follow our guide to discover the companies that produce everything from retro bikinis and bamboo iPhone cases to the iconic Leatherman multitool right here in Portland. Over the past few years Portland’s dining scene has wowed food critics from coast to coast. But even with so many great restaurants to enjoy, certain meals stand out. Our guide plates up six of the city’s most quintessential dishes; from legendary food-cart meals to a doughnut-lover’s best friend, it’s one delicious trip. Plus: Downtown’s hottest new restaurants. Portland’s neighborhoods are as charismatic as they are accessible. Within minutes of the city center, visitors can discover some great shopping, dining and entertainment, along with ample personality. We profile nine districts, each home to delicious restaurants, independently owned stores and inviting recreation options. Scenic beaches, snowcapped peaks and pristine wilderness are all within 80 miles of the city. Explore waterfalls and microbrews in the Columbia River Gorge, or feel the sea breeze in an artsy beach town. Wine lovers savor worldfamous Oregon Pinot noir at its source and history buffs explore the Oregon Trail, while adventurers head to the slopes of Mount Hood for camping or singletrack riding, not to mention year-round skiing.

With more than 30 wineries—the closest wineries to Portland—you can enjoy an urban-to-rural adventure within minutes. Dine at Washington County’s many acclaimed restaurants, while discovering new global cuisine. There are nearly 727-square miles of open spaces to explore, ranging from extreme zip-lining and cycling through forests to kayaking calm waters or playing a round of golf at one of 12 courses. Dozens of “u-pick” farms provide a true farm-to-table experience, while boutiques and retail centers provide the ultimate in tax-free shopping.

  12. 12. Portland Monthly magazine’s contributing food writer, Benjamin Tepler has spent the last two years interpreting chef shorthand, lining up citywide rounds of biscuit-tastings and blogging everything worth chewing on for the magazine’s dining blog “Eat Beat.” When he’s not lending his taste buds to pieces like “Great Plates” (p. 27) for Travel Portland, the New York native continues his search for the perfect boiled bagel. Eden Dawn (yes, that is her real name), who covers vintage shopping (p. 65), is Portland Monthly’s style editor. Between coordinating fashion shoots for the likes of Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein and reporting the latest sartorial trends, the native Oregonian can be found teaching fashion at the Art Institute of Portland. Southeast Portland resident and awardwinning travel writer Julian Smith, who contributed to “Street Scene” (p. 33), is the author of Crossing the Heart of Africa, a book about following the 4,000-mile, eight-country route of a love-struck 19thcentury British explorer. Smith also covers science and travel for Smithsonian, Wired, Outside and the Washington Post. travelportland.com Photographer Stuart “Stu” Mullenberg knows his way around the table. The Minnesota native regularly documents restaurants, bars and foodie culture for Portland Monthly and Imbibe magazines, and we asked him to do the same for us. Find his shots of standout dishes in “Great Plates,” Feast food festival in Notebook (p. 13), and cocktails in Nightlife (p. 77). Stu lives in North Portland with his wife, Korie, and daughter, Lily. 10 travel Portland 877.678.5263 info@travelportland.com www.travelportland.com President and CEO Jeff Miller Editor Karen Martwick Executive vice president of marketing and p.r.

  15. 15. notebook Feast for the Senses A new culinary festival turns the world’s eyes on Portland kitchens. By benjamin Tepler Local chefs at feast’s 2012 sandwich invitational travelportland.com P h oto g r a p h b y s t u a r t m u l l e n b e r g “B lame the coffee geeks, blame the microbreweries, blame the climate, and all that local produce . . . Fact is, Portland’s food scene is where it’s at.” With that 2011 announcement, Bon Appétit magazine put the foodie world on notice that the upstart, indie-minded Stumptown had officially cemented itself as a bona fide culinary capital — and that a coming-out party was in order. Enter Feast Portland (www.feastportland.com), the city’s first-ever world-class food festival. The inaugural three-day event in September 2012 drew upon a deep roster of Portland-bred talent (national James Beard Award-winning chefs, renegade food-cart cooks, sommeliers and beer experts, just for starters) and an international cast of kitchen royalty, including chefs from Michelin-starred restaurants, food writers from The New York Times and Bon Appétit, and foodie TV personalities. Feast 2.0 is set for Sept. 20-23, 2013 — but the Portland food scene dazzles in any season. The fertile Willamette Valley fills the pantries of acclaimed chefs and stocks booths and shelves at some of the country’s most impressive farmers’ markets and gourmet specialty shops. Close proximity to the Pacific means just-caught salmon, tuna and Dungeness crab. Organic farms deliver grass-fed beef and hazelnutfinished hogs. Deep, rain-washed forests harbor fresh chanterelle and morel mushrooms. Around town, more than 50 breweries produce thirst-quenching beers, while wine (and spirit) lists at nearly every restaurant are dominated by local products. Our bounty also spills over to a legendary food-cart scene (some 700 and counting) — and it’s not unheard of to experience all of these delights on the same city block. Your table is waiting. 13

  18. 18. notebook Coffee Crawl Sample Portland’s (other) brewing scene at these downtown cafés. I n Portland, coffee is the new wine, baristas are akin to rock stars and only the most tricked-out espresso machines are trusted with unique house roasts. With breakout local successes like Stumptown Coffee Roasters, which now boasts satellites in Brooklyn and Seattle as well as a burgeoning line of bottled cold brews, the city seems poised to take over (or at least overcaffeinate) the nation. In the meantime, visitors will find Portland’s bean scene is as accessible as it is diverse. In fact, you don’t have to leave downtown to sample some of the best cups. Here’s a short list that’s bound to get you buzzing. — Kit Mauldin siphon brewing method at barista 16 Spella Caffè Public Domain Barista Owner Joel Domreis starts most days with a 4 a.m. roasting session, cooking up to 100 pounds of fresh green beans before switching to baking duty in his minimalist storefront. Behind the bar made of locally sourced walnut, cold brews steep for 24 hours and light- and medium-bodied single-origin varieties are filtered through 23-karat-gold-plated cones. Domreis’ cannelés also have a dedicated following. 923 S.W. Oak St.; 503.545.6444; www.couriercoffeeroasters.com Andrea Spella’s closet-size café near Pioneer Courthouse Square showcases the Italian-American’s love for palate-engaging blended roasts and a fondness for rare bean varietals imported from Brazil and India. Order a traditional cappuccino and look for bags of tiny, handpicked peaberry beans from Karnataka, India, to savor back home. 520 S.W. Fifth Ave.; 503.752.0264; www.spellacaffe.com Coffee fanatics are encouraged to conduct their own tastings during Public Domain’s $2 espresso happy hour (11 a.m.-noon Mon. – Fri.; includes a complimentary, palate-cleansing Pellegrino shot). Or pick from one of many houseroasted single-origin varietals at the expansive pour-over bar. Whatever you sip, don’t forget to ogle the $20k, handmade Slayer espresso machine. 603 S.W. Broadway; 503.243.6374; www.publicdomaincoffee.com Run by a three-time winner of the Northwest Barista Competition, Billy Wilson, Barista coffee shops feature beans from some of the best roasters in the country, like San Francisco-based Sightglass.

R estaurants and food carts aren’t the only places to experience Portland’s hyperlocal independent culinary scene — you can also savor that creativity by the scoop. Opened just two years ago, Salt & Straw (2035 N.E. Alberta St., 503.208.3867; 838 N.W. 23rd Ave., 971.271.8168; www. saltandstraw.com) has already spawned a second location (with a third in the works for summer 2013) and entranced food critics from the likes of Bon Appétit and Sunset magazine. Unexpected recipes like strawberry with balsamic vinegar and black pepper, pear with blue cheese, and Arbequina olive oil might raise eyebrows, but trust your taste buds: These flavors sing. Watch for limited-edition offerings, like the Timbers-soccer-inspired “Rose City Riot,” featuring rosewater, pistachios and saffroninfused cream.

The ice creamery got its start at the Portland Farmers Market and now boasts a pair of brick-and-mortar locations serving locally sourced scoops, sundaes and addictive ice cream sandwiches. Try the lemon cookie with honey lavender ice cream or adventurous specials like chevre with port. The downtown shop also features a candy shop and soda fountain. For a true mad scientist’s approach, try What’s the Scoop? (3540 N.Williams Ave.; 971. 271.7694; www.whatsthescooppdx. com), which utilizes liquid nitrogen to fast-freeze its handcrafted treats for unbelievable creaminess. Rotating flavors include Maple Jack (as in Jack Daniel’s whiskey) Bacon Brittle and peanut butter curry. Experimentation has rarely tasted this sweet. — Karen Martwick travelportland.com For the Ladies notebook T here’s more to nailing Portland’s signature casual-cool look than simply popping on a little plaid. After all, a true local is prepared to cycle to work, dodge raindrops and hoof it to a gallery opening in one versatile ensemble. Luckily, the West End and Nob Hill shopping districts make it easy to snap up some quintessentially Portlandic accessories. Here’s what to look for. Just remember to leave the kilts, handlebar mustaches and rollerderby socks to, er, advanced Portlanders. — Eden Dawn 17

The coveted ground round comes pierced with a knife and oozes with aged white cheddar, iceberg slaw and pickled onions on a sturdy Ken’s Artisan Bakery roll. Insider tip: Le Pigeon’s sister restaurant, downtown’s Little Bird (219 S.W. Sixth Ave.), also offers the burger all day. 738 E. Burnside St.; 503.546.8796; www.lepigeon.com 28 Cart-ography Navigate the city’s many food carts. Portland’s selection of food cart cuisine — the town claims more than 600 — has drawn raves from the likes of Bon Appétit magazine and CNN. Most are grouped in “pods,” making dining on the go especially delicious. Here are a few to try. downtown pods S.W. Stark St. & Fifth Ave. S.W. Alder St. & 10th Ave. Set on the MAX line, the Fifth Ave. cluster includes the Brunch Box, with its dozen decadent burgers. The Alder pod, near Powell’s Books, claims favorites like Euro-Trash (fresh potato chips and other street food) and the Whole Bowl (veggies topped with addictive garlic sauce). Mississippi Marketplace North Mississippi Avenue & Skidmore Street Set on hip, walkable Mississippi, the 10 choices here include breakfast standout the Big Egg, with sandwiches like the Arbor Lodge, which features local farm eggs, caramelized onions and baby arugula. Adding to the feast, Koi Fusion’s truck dishes Korean-style tacos every day but Sunday. Cartopia Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard & 12th Avenue A favorite of late-nighters, this eastside grouping hosts Potato Champion, which dishes up crispy, twice-fried Belgian-style fries and gravy-doused poutine. Pyro Pizza’s wood-fired pizzas also tame midnight munchies, while Whiffie’s Fried Pies burst with molten fruit flavors. — Brian Barker
  31. 31. Bacon Maple Bar Voodoo Doughnut Voodoo Doughnut has been serving outrageous creations 24 hours a day for nearly a decade: Toppings have ranged from Cap’n Crunch cereal to a NyQuil glaze (an option quickly quashed by health officials). But the doughnut that launched a thousand bacon-themed spinoffs — the Bacon Maple Bar — celebrates the same happy marriage of pork and syrup found on the breakfast plate. As the ultimate sinful indulgence, it’s earned a big nod from famous globe-roaming diner Anthony Bourdain and inspired an eponymous ale from Oregon brewery Rogue. 22 S.W. Third Ave., 503.241.4704; 1501 N.E. Davis St., 503.235.2666; www.voodoodoughnut.com Ike’s Wings Pok Pok’s fish sauce wings may be Portland’s most successful culinary export. After conquering the Rose City with three acclaimed restaurants, Thai grilling expert Andy Ricker took his Southeast Asian authenticity to the streets of New York, where Ike’s Wings were extolled as “New York’s Best Wings” in 2012 by New York Magazine. Try them at their original home (or sibling locations, Whiskey Soda Lounge and Pok Pok Noi) and plan to lick your fingers. 3226 S.E.

  32. 32. Down Time New eateries enliven downtown’s dining scene. Imperial The latest venture from James Beard Award-winning chef Vitaly Paley anchors Broadway’s artsy Hotel Lucia and sports bike-chain chandeliers and exposed brick walls. Paley and executive chef Ben Bettinger collaborate nightly on the robust menu, with standout dishes like duck meatballs in plum sauce and seared Oregon albacore atop a bed of vanilla-scented crab creamed corn with fried onions. Feeling more casual? Head next door to Portland Penny Diner, Paley’s counter-service diner serving an array of sandwiches and daily options like meatloaf or fried oysters. 410 S.W. Broadway; 503.228.7222; www.imperialpdx.com; www.pennydiner.com travelportland.com Lardo A retro studio-light-style sign spells out Lardo’s mission statement: Pig Out. Offerings include a pork meatball banh mi with tangy Sriracha mayo and a slow-roasted pork Philly cheese. Even the fries get piggy — the addictive house-cut “dirty fries” come piled up with morsels of crispy pork. The Bloody Mary, made with horseradish-infused vodka, is one of the most potent in town. 1205 S.W. Washington St.; 503.241.2490; www.lardopdx.com 30 tasty n alder John Gorham, chef and owner of the east side’s wildly popular Toro Bravo and Tasty n Sons, opened Tasty n Alder in downtown’s West End in early 2013. Brunch, served all day, includes global dishes like Korean fried chicken with house kimchi and eggs two ways. Dinner options range from Cowboy Skirt Steak to Sexy Filipino Fish Stew — and can be accompanied by “Grown Ass” milkshakes spiked with liquor. 580 S.W. 12th Ave.; 503.621.9251; www.tastyntasty.com Grüner Christopher Israel’s West End eatery evokes parallels between the climates and terrains of Oregon and Northern Europe. The sleek modern dining room woos sophisticated palates with dishes like red-wine-braised lamb shanks and Alsatian tarte flambée with bacon and sweet onions. Israel also makes one decidedly down-home hamburger. Stacked with smoky bacon and fontina, it’s a must-try on the restaurant’s bar menu. 527 S.W. 12th Ave.; 503.241.7163; www. grunerpdx.com — Allison Jones Foie Gras Bon–Bon Beast While no two menus are ever the same at Naomi Pomeroy’s dinnerparty-like restaurant, the Foie Gras Bon-Bon happens to be one luxurious staple. This goose-liver gem appears on Beast’s charcuterie plate alongside chicken liver mousse, steak tartare with quail egg on toast, and pork and pistachio pâté. But the buttery lobe crowned with a quivering slice of salted gelée of Sauternes (a French dessert wine) is in a league of its own. 5425 N.E. 30th Ave.; 503.841.6968; www.beastpdx.com The Reggie Deluxe Pine State Biscuits From its humble farmers’ market beginnings to a full-blown biscuit empire, Pine State has garnered a serious reputation for hefty North Carolina-style butter biscuits and creative fillings. The pièce de résistance: a towering sandwich stacked high with buttermilk-fried chicken, a fried egg, cheddar, bacon and sausage gravy. Dubbed a “hangover cure” by Esquire, this one’s worth the sometimes lengthy wait. 2204 N.E. Alberta St., 503.477.6605; location at S.E. Division Street & 11th Avenue planned for 2013; available at Portland Farmers Market at PSU on Saturdays; www.pinestatebiscuits.com
  33. 33. P h oto g r a p h s b y s t u a r t m u l l e n b e r g Nong’s Khao Man Gai Portland’s biggest food-cart crush serves but one dish: Khao Man Ghai, a Thai street-food staple that’s as simple as it is delicious. Succulent poached chicken and rice comes wrapped in butcher paper, along with a soybean sauce infused with concentrated garlic, ginger and Thai chili heat, and a simple, brothy soup. Owner Nong Poonsukwattana’s cart is no one-hit wonder — demand is so strong for her specialty that she now boasts three separate locations, including an eastside brick-and-mortar to-go storefront, and her signature sauce is sold by the bottle for an edible souvenir.
