Portland Eats

Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurants
We love the diverse vegetarian and vegan options that Portland offers! Here are just a few of our favorites.
Harlow is Gluten-free, Vegan, light and airy. It's a taste of LA in Portland, so if that sounds great, enjoy! If that sounds a bit hipster and attitude-y, you're right! The vegan, gluten-free mac and cheese makes up for any trace of attitude, though.

If you like Gluten-free, vegan baked goods, this is your personal Nirvana. This location is actually two-in-one, a large, airy, relaxed cafe (complete with vegan pizza and wine) next to a smaller bakery loaded with sweet treats. The vegan biscuits and gravy breakfast is incredible. Add the vegan sausage. It's so delish.

Portland does Ethiopian really well, and we have lots of recommendations if you want to do an Ethiopian tour - but this is the one we always go back to. It's a bit more upscale and elegant than other Ethiopian joints, but is still affordable and so, so delicious, with a full liquor license. Also tons of meat options for a mixed family. Try the Beyaynetu, which is a combination of their best vegetable dishes.

This place isn't my favorite, but it's a solid choice for an upscale, vegan meal. It's been a while since I've been here, but I recall the tacos being excellent.

Confession: I've never actually eaten here, as the brewery right next store has amazing food as well. But I really want to try this completely vegan comfort food place, which is a 10 minute walk from the house, so I wanted to put it on the list!

Bollywood Theater is a fun, swanky Indian restaurant that always has a ton of vegan and non-vegan options. The vibe is just so fun and vibrant, and it's super family (and date) friendly!

Favorite Restaurants
There are just our favorite restaurants, regardless of cuisine, that we keep coming back to. We're voracious eaters and lovers of all types of cuisine, but these are obviously just our opinions. Yelp tends to agree with us though. All price points and styles - just great food.
I love Kachka with all my heart and soul. It's Russian and sexy (as a Russian myself, I can say those words don't often go together in cuisine), and the vodka selection is amazing. We definitely recommend going with their tasting menu of all their appetizers - go hungry!

We love the food at this place. It's not fancy, but consistent and delicious. Pro-tip: DO NOT order from here on Seamless, as they take forever - we've had it take more than 3 hours!! If you want to do take-out, we recommend ordering it yourself and picking up - they're much quicker that way and accurate as to the time estimate.

Forget Pok Pok, with their criminally sweet wings. Farmhouse Kitchen is some of the best Thai we've had in Portland. Everything is good, and they're very kind to children, even when they (cough cough) manage to break their Christmas lights.

I'm pretty sure Tusk puts some form of addictive substance in their food, because it's just so insanely good. Mediterranean but unique and fresh and interesting, not cheap but not too expensive, worth every penny.

Kat has a particular affection for Ethiopian food, but Abyssinian Kitchen is our place. It's upscale but not fancy, and the family that owns it is so lovely. Great options for vegans and meat-eaters alike, as well as gluten-free injera (the bread used to scoop up the delicious food) and a full bar.

This is where we go when we want to bring family - it's bustling and impressive, and accessible - also super kid friendly while still feeling elevated. It was the IT restaurant in Portland about 5 years ago, but now that the buzz has chilled (but the food is equally excellent) it's easy to get a reservation.

Gluten-free folks, run away - they only have salads for us. But for the pizza lovers, this spot can't be beat - perfect pies (not too thin, not too thick) with creative toppings. Either get a reservation or be prepared to be there early, as they do run out and there's often a wait.

This is a chain, but it's the best of the chains. The truffle fries are magic, and the burgers are the perfect size (somewhere between a slider and a normal burger) to make it so you're not solely eating fries for lunch, if you don't want to.

This place isn't actually my favorite, but it's closest to our house and it's perfectly good. I just dislike coffee shops that don't have comfy seating, and so I get annoyed by this place.

This is probably the best coffee we've had in Portland (gasp! Horror! we picked a favorite!) they take their coffee seriously, and it's actually roasted just a few blocks from our house - you can call and pick some up fresh out of the roaster! The coffee shop itself is near the downtown Powells.

Full Disclosure: Kat hates this place, even though she's never been, because the two times she's tried, the wait was absurd. But Anthony loves it and thinks it's an incredible exeperience with perfect cocktails made from mermaid magic or something. So if you want to go, we recommend splurging for the $20 for the reservation - note, that DOESN'T INCLUDE A DRINK! But whatever.
