Well I used to live in Portland, and am visiting for a week.
Living in Michigan, I need a few recs..
On my list is :
Yuzu Itzakaya
Bunk Sandwiches
Apizza Scholls

I am looking for a good sushi restaurant, when I lived there Saburo's was my regular place.
but when I left it was not as good as whe I moved there 10 years ago. I also liked the sushi place next to Uwigamya ? While I love quality, I do like some quantity, after some very expensive meals in NYC, (ie Sushi Yasuda).

Second love Vietnamese food,was not a fan of Pho Van, used to eat at Pho Huang on East 33rd?
Good Pho, but looking for Bun or Bahn Mi.

Also Dim Sum? Has chinatown gotten any better, Wong's King I heard has decent Dim Sum, Was not a fan of Legin.

Also any real deal Thai restaurants, My wife liked Pok Pok. I used their rib recipe from Bon Appetite and was very good. Anything more authentic or with a Malaysian Twist?

Also any must trys, not nessisarily fancy, we prefer street food to white table cloths.
Thnaks in advance.
