I was in Portland in Spring 2019 here’s a brief rundown of my experience with specific dishes:

Jacqueline - We ordered a few items. The standouts were the crab toast and the spot prawns. Spot prawns had a very nice spicy butter that complimented their sweetness. We also had a yellowtail first course that had grapefruit, I felt the fruit’s acidity overwhelmed the dish. I would definitely return to try a few more items on the menu.

HunnyMilk - I had the fried chicken and grits and poppyseed crepe with key lime curd. They comped a nice churro con chocolate treat because of the wait. I wasn’t a fan of the fried chicken, but the grits were good. On the bright side the poppyseed crepe was a delicious key lime pie-like sweet treat. This place is busy but also comfortable and has an atmosphere conducive for a lingering over a morning cup of coffee.

Quaintrelle - Enjoyed this place. Standout dishes were the kales and the King Salmon with the chicken glace. We also enjoyed the Octopus. The only miss was the fava beans, which were served unpeeled and charred, while the flavor of the accompaniments were good, I prefer the kitchen remove the tough shells. The table next to us had the cheese plate and the steak which both looked like something we’d get next time.

Tasty & Daughters - sat at the bar and had a morel toast and the manti. The manti were exactly as I remembered the dish in Istanbul. So there were authentic well-made rendition of traditional manti. I would’ve like an additional spice to bring the heat up against the yogurt sauce. Thoroughly enjoyed the morel toast, a generous amount of morels on top of a toasted crusty bread that had begun to soak in the savory sauce. Worth a return trip.

Notable Coffee’s while in PDX - Heart - still going strong. Good Coffee (near Tasty & Daughters)
