You think there's good BBQ in Portland? Seriously?
Sadly, he's making a Hawaiian reference in ignorance to the actual area between Beaverton and Hillsboro. Would have been a great setup...I ACHE for these.
how is NE Alberta in Aloha? i'm too confused to even look at a map
But as a person of swiss heritage i will find this place and denigrate it's offerings as bogus.
Their salad dressing is amazing! DO NOT NOT TRY IT
Your best review. Very sincere, i like it.
Your best review. Good job.
Great personal summary. Appreciate the mention of MEET BBQ Kansas City Style Ribs. John does a great job and gets only the best meat that he picks out personally.
The "Being 5, 60 and Buddha at the same time" line from the Staniches review is so perfect is made me bleat out loud. Great piece.
Nice, good insight. Thanks Chris
Sweet VW bus!
I cannot believe that Chris failed to mention the ridiculous high quality polenta at the meatballs place. Seriously, it's the best I've had in Portland.
So that's where the pie spot moved to.
I live on the actual edge of the city.... and 82nd may aswell be the edge as far as eating out is concerned.
Also glad to see Chris covering some cheaper places again for poor folk like me. I knew this one sounded familiar because it's right next to the awesome Glisan Burger Barn he covered a while back, which I frequent now. Will have to check this place out as well.
I'm there, on the edge or not...
The comment above is right on... Portland goes as far east as 190th Avenue!
While east Portland has been neglected for may years, it is becoming Portland's best kept secret and the new frontier. The Gateway Regional Center is finally starting to re-energize and is in the process of becoming one of five major new Eco Districts. The Gateway Green biking venue http://gatewaygreenpdx.org is going to be awesome.
Right now you can get a nice mid-century house on a quarter-acre lot full of Doug firs for less than 200K... but not for long!
Hanoi Kitchen is awesome and just one part of a really cool multi-cultural vibe happening in East Portland.
79th Avenue is NOT the "edge of the City."
Thank you for the review Chris. As you say, there are a legion of places here and it is good to have direction...this place sounds very intriguing.
I've been coming to Hanoi Kitchen since about 6 months after they opened. I've been coming back several times a week since. I love getting the fried rice and pork chops dish but I after reading the review of that particular dish it made me realize why I love it so much. Ho-Hum bachelor hash? I'm a bachelor. No wonder I love it so much. The real gem on the menu is their Bun Bo Hue C3 on the menu. Superior to any other I've had at other restaurants in this town and I've been ordering it for years now. Its my "Usual" when I walk in.
