diners and comfort food in Portland

renshiwo | Jan 14, 2009 06:26 PM

After perusing the board, my mouth is watering at all the delicious picks for Portland. However, we will be spending some time with my in-laws, and I'm looking for recommendations for places that we can go with them. The catch - my father-in-law will only eat very boring, bland food. Pepper in his hamburger? No way! Beer = Coor's. Mustard = Heinz. You get the picture.

So, I'm hoping you can recommend places that will fulfill his need for very bland food, while hopefully allowing me to enjoy my dinner as well. We have managed to eat at good restaurants that will specially prepare his food without spices, but generally you have to go fairly high end to get that sort of attention, and we will mostly be on a low budget (say $20 or less for an entree).
We will be more or less downtown. They are staying near the university, and we are near the Lloyd Center. Somewhere that is easily accessible via public transit would be a bonus.

Thanks! I will probably put up a post about my own food questions, but I think this is the trickiest question I have!
