Head where the locals do, to Portland's Mississippi Street, where a number of notable restaurants are located down a few short blocks.
If you're celiac or wheat-averse, try one of Mississippi Pizza's gluten-free pies with a crunchy crust. Wash it down with gluten-free beer, one always on tap.
It's decent breakfast on the weekend, but you'll soon learn why there's not a line. Order the huevos rancheros with tortillas on the side.
Folks line out the door for this Oprah-endorsed taqueria on trendy Mississippi. Order some barbacoa tacos with salsa fresca and a Horchata Borracha then take a seat outside on Por Que No's elaborate front patio.
As someone who has spent eight years in the pizza industry, Fifty-Fifty's wood-fire pie has re-whet my taste buds for The Za. Mouthwatering.
The burgers at Bar Bar are just as good as the menu and everyone says they are, especially the veggie burger. The buns made from scratch are soft and with the tomato jam you'll never miss ketchup.
