this very popular taco truck in the midsts of Southeast Portland offers a primarily veggie-friendly menu with ingredients such as soyrizo and tofu. If you really must indulge in consuming flesh, chicken and beef offerings are also available.
Division street is home to two Taqueria Los Gorditos. The original cart up at 50th and this un-wheeled restaurant. Offering the same tasty Mexican food with all those delicious vegan choices, well even more choices actually since they have a real kitchen and everything. While they don't serve alcohol, you can always get and order to-go and head next door to Apex
, grab a beer and enjoy the patio. They're also open early serving breakfast on Sunday, so WAKE Up and go there dude, you haven't eaten since last night!
A casual but popular breakfast/lunch spot serving up Stumptown coffee, fresh egg or tofu scrambles, pancakes, sandwiches, daily specials and more really good stuff including what may possibly be the best hashbrowns on town. Their newly expanded space and hours mean the long waits for a table are a thing of the past. And yes, Jam makes their own jam, who knew?
Hot Dogs, sausages, and veggie dogs to boot, along with all the toppings you could want. This little bar on Hawthorne serves up some fine cheap street grub for lunch or late at night.
The place where all the cool kids go, Dot's is a one-of-a-kind Portland icon of sorts. It's overpoweringly dark, but once your eyes adjust, you can enjoy velvet paintings of doe-eyed children, anti-drug posters from other countries, and more from their rotating collection of kitschy art. Dot's serves some fantastic junk food and a fine variety of classic cocktails and sodas (Lime Rickey anyone?). Jalepeño cheese fries, the Gentle Ben (the vegetarian version of the Ruben), the generously portioned Caravan Platter (falafel, hummus, olives, tomatoes, feta, pita), and a frosty PBR for me, please!
