Food Passport Ideas needed

I'm creating a Portland Food Passport with the top 12+ restaurants I want to visit in the next year (as part of my 30 during 30 list). What are some of your must-eats in Portland? Can be a restaurant, food cart, specialty shop, doesn't matter. If your suggestion makes the list you'll get a little something special from me.

Please try to limit to the Portland area and immediate suburbs. (I.e., no beach town restaurants)

  4. Olympic Provisions is one of the most Portland restaurants around: amazing charcuterie plates and cocktails. If you've never been to The Meadow, you should check that out-it's a little boutique shop dedicated to bitters, chocolate, salt, and flowers.

  5. Waffle window's pretty great, used to be a food cart but has an actual sit down place now too. Salt and Straw, obviously. If you're a nerd hit up the Tardis Bar for the best fish and chips around. Have you been to the pied cow? Great place if you like hookah in the summer.

  6. Tasty Chinese food. Wong's King at Division and Hwy 205. Dim Sum - House of Louie. Beaker & Flask. Jam (I have not tried, but come highly recommended for breakfast).

  8. Seconded on Beaker & Flask-my favorite cocktails in Portland, and good food too. Especially dessert! Also, Ox is really good, but spendy and hard to get into sometimes. It's Portlandish Argentinian food-lots of grilling.

  9. Beaker & Flask's sister bar (around the corner) is more casual, but one of my top cocktail places in the city. That's where I discovered bacon jam (on an eggsalad sandwich). Iorio had always wonderful Italian. If you can do spice, Baan Thai had the best Thai. The best pho (and I'm mighty picky!) at LaVang in LO. Mi Mero Mole is a great everyday place. I'm better off listing top cocktail places these days! The Cumin Centipede at The Observatory was amazing! When I'm not up in the middle of the night, sleep deprived, I'll tackle this again with a full brain...
