If the city of Portland had to design a burrito, it'd probably look something like one you could get at Laughing Planet. Creative and sometimes bizarre (yet tasty) combinations. Burritos, bowls and quesidillas can be augmented with the addition of organic: tofu, tempeh or chicken. L.P. also features delicious smoothies, fresh juices, and lots of vegan baked goods. A perfect place when you need something healthy and fast.
This little Mexican place serves up a ton of food, like big-ass burritos for low-ass prices. And they're open 24 hours so whenever you have a craving...
You can't miss it when driving down Sandy, it's well, y'know, purple! Also known as the "Handy Slut" or simply "the Slut," various sorts of Portlanders get their drink on at this classic watering and mingling hole. You can stave off the otherwise inevitable hangover with sandwiches, burgers and the like or do it with breakfast, because breakfast is served all day.
From what I can tell, the B-Side is a typical Portland dive, only without all the old people you'd find at say, the Yukon Tavern. Regulars come for the friendly, relaxing atmosphere, competitively priced drinks and well-stocked juke box. -How can it not have a great juke box with a name like B-side? An enjoyable spot to spend a few hours playing pinball or drinking with 10 of your closest friends.
As in: If you're not "in the know," you're not there. Indie art gallery, live music venue, and screening room. They serve bottled beer only but that doesn't deter young hipsters "in the know" from packing the joint.
A divey, drinky Portland mainstay unchanged in years. Friendly staff, cheap drinks w/plenty of specials. Pool, video games, and greasy pub food as well as that x-mas tree in the window year-round. Breakfast served all day. Scrambled eggs and a Bloody Mary for your hangover? I thought so.
In operation for over a century now, Kelly's is a true Portland icon. With hanging vintage motorcycles and myriad colorful neon signs, it's a favorite of bikers (ample motorcycle parking out front), students, and office workers alike. The kitchen dishes up some remarkable bar food including all-day breakfast and ive music at the Knife Shop
next door ranges from DJs to local bands
Rockin’ downtown music venue with an eclectic clientele (read: bike messengers). Great place for people watching. The Ash Street serves a mean drink but deep fried appetizers, burgers, and sandwiches will soak up that booze for you.
