Sell yourself, Portland!

tjennis | Aug 11, 2008 05:04 AM

So I am visting a friend in Portland for a few days in a couple of weeks. I've never been there, but I will be taking notes to see if Portland might be a good place to move to (kind of ready for a change of scenery). I'd like to see how the food scene is there, and I could use some recommendations.

-I'd like to try food that exemplifies Portland/Pacific Northwest cuisine.

-I don't usually spend big bucks on meals as it is, so I probably wouldn't
in the future. On special occasions I make exceptions, but I'm looking
for places that you would go to casually with friends.

-I know nothing about Portland geography so any tips would also be great.

-If there are any good farmers markets around, they would be fantastic to visit!

So, what can you recommend?

Thanks!
