Food Carts

The food cart scene is a little different than the food truck scene. Though there are some that are mobile (see below) the “scene” is based around pods. That is, areas around town dedicated to these businesses. They look more like food stands with kitchens, the ones you find at food festivals. However, they’re permanent kinda like the hawker centers in Singapore. And like the ones in Singapore, there are some gems you’ll have to seek out. I ate at a couple before wondering why I paid so much for…

Ox

This place was calling my name. Literally. Get it? Okay, fine. I’m horrible at humor. I’m an eater not a comedian. And hopefully, my obsessive eating will help you out. Especially for this restaurant, Ox, which happened to be close to my hotel. I’ve been reading about ever since I landed. I would have tried it earlier, but Sunday had a wait list that had me rethink my plans. So here I was on a Wednesday when it first opened at five. Fork and spoon in hand. Even though this…

Voodoo Donuts

The Bacon Maple Bar was a wonderful end to the night. Tip, Voodoo Doughnuts is open 24 hours and Voodoo Doughnuts Too is less of a wait. Just throwin it out there!

Deschutes Brewery

Want good bar food? And no, it’s not a trick question. You got it. This place was a local recommendation. Good beers and surprisingly good food for a brewery. And to be honest, I don’t expect much when I go to these types of places. After eating here though, I realized I should expect good food. This place did it. Why not others? And to think about it, where’s the line between breweries and gastropubs anyways? Deschutes may be that missing link. The place was large and there were people…

Yama Sushi

This place was right around the corner from Puppet Labs, a place we were suppose to be later. More about that toward the end. You’re here for this sushi place that I looked up. Not too hard to find when you’re walking around the area. It’s on the corner and had outside seating. Best of all, there weren’t any lines. Okay, so it was Monday. Still, I’d say it was crowded for a Monday. Inside we sat at the sushi bar. Mainly to get a glimpse off their fish selection….

Andina

Sunday night and places were busy. At least two of the places I moseyed on over to had horrible wait times. I can’t wait an hour and a half to eat. I hunger. Thankfully, by the third attempt we found a place with open seating. Andina. A lovely Peruvian restaurant that had two floors of dining. Two floors! The place was very cozy. Tables and booths lined the restaurant in all sections of the place. They used the space up to the point right before getting too tight. Unfortunately, we…
