2 Days in Portland (And a little Florence)?

We are a small family relocation from the SF Bay Area to Michigan a few years ago. Next week we are going to Florence for a family reunion, and then to Portland for a couple of days. We have 2 young boys (4 & 6), and we have a few questions.

- Hot Pot is something we miss, and Hot Pot City was on our short list, but the web-site is no longer up, are they still in business, and are they worth one of our few dinner spots.

- Recommendations of yummy, affordable food is appreciated. We like ethnic food, and fun unique restaurants. From searching the board, our short list is: Wong's King Seafood, Brazil Grill, Cha, Cha, Cha, Halibut's, Paley's Place, Pok Pok, Cha Ba Thai, and Banh Cuon Tan Dinh. That is a lot of places for 3 or 4 meals. Any help narrowing it down, or pointing out a gem that we missed is appreciated.

- We are still deciding the 101 vs 5 route from Florence to Portland. From a culinary perspective, which would you suggest?

- Speaking of Florence, any good seafood places that you can recommend?

Lots of questions, I know, but any help would be appreciated.
