Montreal foodie looking for recco's

estilker | Aug 3, 2011 10:53 AM

Will be travelling from Seattle to San Diego in September. Looking for reccomendations what to eat in Portland, along the coast to California and also the Columbia River Gorge Area.
Originally from Europe, I've travelled all around Europe so I am quite accustomed to European cuisine and of course Montreal has French bistro cuisine down.

I am looking for moderately priced options and an occasional splurge for both breakfast/lunch/dinner. I like locally sourced foods, places with their own identity, have a weakness for good beer (being Belgian), mixology oriented bars and all types of ethnic cuisines. Montreal is not really known for their outstanding seafood, so I hope to get my fair share on the West Coast.

Montreal has no street food scene, so I would like to check out some food carts. I've also heard good things about Pok Pok and understand they have 2 locations now. Will probably be staying in a couple of McMenamin hotels during our trip. How are the attached restaurants and bars?
