We are arriving in Portland OR by train in late morning and have several hours layover before catching a bus from the train station. We are looking for some good reccommendations for reasonably priced ethnic lunch, esp Latin, central Asian, or Far Eastern other than Japanese. If the weather isn't dreadful, we plan to walk around Portland's downtown/Old Town--past Pioneer Courthouse Square and then down to the river, over by the South Parks museums, and in the Pearl; if the weather is really bad, we'll probably spend a lot of time at Powell Books. So, anyway, any recs in these areas of the city would be greatly appreciated. (It's unlikely we will have time to get to NW 23rd or over to the East Side or any places further afield.)
Last time I was in Portland and needed to be not far from the train station, I had dim sum in Fong Chong in Chinatown, which I thought was pretty good . . . but that was several years ago.
Any ideas? Thanks for your input!
