You won't miss the meat at these veg-friendly institutions. Portland's vegetarian, vegan, and veg-accommodating eateries are skilled at bringing the comfort, craft, and creativity to meatless meals. Here are my picks for the top places to get your herbivore on.
Even if you're a meat eater, try the vegetarian tasting menu from chef David Anderson. He works magic with pasta, risotto, mushrooms, and more.
Neighborhood pizzeria with a killer outdoor patio. Head in for happy hour for $1 off slices and pints. Family and vegan friendly!
When hungry herbivores crave a large helping of greens outside of their own kitchens, they head to Blossoming Lotus, where the standout Crispy Thai BBQ salad is packed with filling ingredients and crave-worthy flavors that will make even the most discerning of diners happy.
The best view in Portland w/ a side of sophisticated and modern Asian cuisine. Greg Gourdet is one of the best chefs in PDX, and his new brunch is crazy good. Vegan/GF friendly.
My favorite vegan restaurant in Portland, Portobello serves home style Italian fare that even a Tuscan grandmother could love. Great cocktails (and mocktails) too! Try brunch.
My go-to taco truck! Perfect for "mixed groups" because vegetarians and omnivores will be equally satisfied. Try the soyrizo burrito or lengua tacos (plus a Mexi-coke).
The best place in town for have-it-your-way hoagies and loaded salads. Draws a crowd during the lunch hour, but arrive a few minutes before or after for smooth ordering.
Southeast Stark’s new watering hole is serving up fresh-squeezed juices, fruit and veggie packed smoothies, and hearty vegan fare in an uber-hip space w/ great design.
Open seven days a week, Kure is the best place in town for ultra-fresh smoothies on the go. Try the Lush Life green smoothie or the Hangover Helper with amino acids (it works).
Great spot for a by the slice late-night bite, whether you eat meat or are vegan all the way. Rock-and-roll vibe with video games and craft beers.
