One of the first art-deco buildings in Portland, the Laurelhurst is a popular second-run movie theater that serves pizza from the New Deal cafe and beer along with the usual movie snacks.
This colorful little taqueria is a longtime, popular standby in the NE Alberta neighborhood, and for good reason. Quick, inexpensive, flavorful Mexican standbys. A $3 burrito is easily a complete meal, but don't stop there: try their homemade tamales, enchiladas, and more. Plus the service... super nice!
The C-Bar is a cute, hip little bar next door to the VERY popular Yoko's Sushi, deep in southeast. Highlights of the C-Bar are its delicious sake and other specialty cocktails and a selection of small plate snacks, sandwiches, burgers and full-on entrees, not to mention sushi from next door. Also they have djs spinning four nights a week and an open mic night.
A soothing, Zen atmosphere to enjoy sushi made with super-fresh fish. Top it off with a Japanese beer or some green tea ice cream.
