The list of options is as long as they are diverse. Bon appetit!
La Sirenita is the go-to spot for inexpensive and authentic Mexican food served up quick. If vegetarian, stick with the black beans.
Gone are the days of the old Alberta Street Pub, when a pint of PBR was served in a dimly lit dive over a pig picture-covered bar. Say hello to the revamped version of the pub with light bulb chandeliers, expansive patio and an airy, minimalist atmosphere--much like the rest of the quickly transforming Alberta Street.
Bella Faccia offers one of the most unique and tasty vegan slices in town, but the flavor doesn't stop there. Try the Pollo on the patio.
Tin Shed is a Portland institution: they have a four season outdoor dining room, long lines on the weekend, and a special menu for your dog. The lines are long because it's worth it.
To avoid the often long wait at Helser's, arrive early--before nine--and enjoy a special, cheaper breakfast menu.
Why stand for the short wait when you can do it up French-style? Grab some of their delicious fresh baked pain and head home with some butter & jam.
Bollywood is mouthwatering, colorful Indian food served in authentic (and Portland-preferred) small plate fashion. Try the okra, beets and saag paneer and wash it down with the British colonialism-inspired Pimm's Cup. Partake for lunch because lines that rival Salt & Straw's begin to form just after.
The Hilt is the latest incarnation for this building and as such it's still flying under the Alberta radar. This makes it a keen spot for quiet drinks that last late--until 2:30am.
This Pine State location boasts late Fri & Sat hours: open until one a.m.! If you're wandering down Alberta for a night cap but sick of the dark, noisy bar scene, stop in here for a spiked Arnold Palmer in a mason jar. Their cocktails rival their biscuits!
The insider secret at Hana: happy hour. You can get dollars off udon, and toss back the sake until you forget how to use chop sticks.
