A couple days of food in Portland

  • Amazing vegan reuben at Red and Black Cafe before exploring Hawthorne, Hosford-Abernethy, and the warehouse district
  • Genmaicha at the very pleasant Behind the Museum Cafe to gather our energy for Powell's
  • More vegan grains+veggies goodness for dinner at Prasad
  • Brunch of stellar french toast, but underwhelming other things, at Jam
  • While wandering around Mississippi: tea samples at Stash (we bought the Portland blend), solid cappuccinos (plus comfy couches and good music) at Albina Press, and delicious jambalaya and fried okra for happy hour at Miss Delta (no interesting local beer though, boo)
  • Didn't get any food or drink at Living Room Theaters, but Old Goats was highly entertaining and you should see it if you get the chance
  • Midnight snack at Voodoo Doughnut, of course
  • Passable coffee at Pieper Cafe, around the corner from Brandon's house (thanks for putting us up!)
  • Train food to-go from the Mt Tabor area: pasties from the Brit-approved Horse Brass, yummy lefse and overpriced sides from Viking Soul Food, spelt+pear+pecan bread from Tabor Bread. Wanted the veggie bowl from Namu, but sadly they didn't open while we were around the Good Food Here food cart pod.
Verdict: Mississippi and Mt Tabor neighborhoods are delightful. As are vegan tempeh rice bowl things. Totally failed to take advantage of the beer scene, but that just means I'll have to go back!
