I will be staying at the Capital Hilton for all of next week (Dec. 7th - 13th) for a conference
Lunch and dinner are on our own every day.
Living as i do in Oregon, I am desperate to experience some culture that is not white/middle class 20 somethings.
There are few caveats:
1) I have a $35 per diem, but am willing to eat a cliff bar for lunch in order to afford a great dinner.
2) I am predominantly vegetarian, but am willing to eat small amounts of seafood.
3) I will not have a car, and so will be entirely dependent on public transit.
I would love recommendations from you natives who know best... and this seems like it might be an interesting challenge to post to the group.
The further afield cuisine wise, the better. Spicy is welcome. Not afraid of hole in the wall joints.
As an added incentive I will send a postcard to whoever provides the best recommendation. Everybody loves getting mail, right?
