My mom recently moved to the suburbs of Portland, OR. This has provided the opportunity for me to visit more frequently and take advantage of the seemingly constant stream of new vegan food. While investigating options I came across this guide from Stumptown Vegans. It is a great place to start if you are visiting. You can also check out my last post about Portland.

Portobello Vegan Trattoria

This trip I finally got a chance to try Portobello. I have heard great things about Portobello, but have never remembered to make a reservation in time when I have gone down (make a reservation, the few times we tried to stop in without one the wait was around three hours). The menu is primarily Italian inspired (it is a trattoria after all).

I had the seitan scallopini with brandy pan sauce, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and cream brussels sprouts. It was like a tasty, fancy thanksgiving dinner. The seitan was very well prepared, with a great texture and flavor. The yams were good, but unevenly cooked and a few were a little on the crunchy side.

We also ordered a pumpkin ravioli in a cashew cream sauce. It was good, but fairly small in size (we ordered the smaller size of the dish, which ended up being four raviolis).

For dessert we got the tiramisu. It was delicious, but honestly didn’t scream “tiramisu” at me. It was more like a really good white cake. It was really good though.

Over all the meal was good, the service was friendly, and the space charming. The portions were a little on the small side, and I wasn’t blown away. I’ll likely go back in the future, but it won’t be the top on my list next time I visit.

Hungry Tiger Too

Another stop this trip was Hungry Tiger Too. This dive bar (located conveniently just around the corner from Portland’s vegan mini mall) features a large vegan menu, but also serves meat. There is a dining room side that is open till 10pm, so you can bring the young ones too.

The menu is mostly bar or diner style food. On Wednesdays they have vegan corn dogs for $1.25 all night. Stop in and eat a few. They are good, but it appears that on Wednesday nights (as well as happy hour when they are $2) they skimp on the batter a little. If you go in and order the corn dog basket (two dogs and a big pile of tater tots) then you will get a fluffier, better coated dog. Either way though, the are pretty darn good, and you don’t often get a chance to order vegan corn dogs.

Also on the happy hour menu are tofuffalo wings (we had a hard time figuring out how to pronounce it too). For less than $4 you get a basket of fried tofu drenched in spicy buffalo sauce (also available BBQ for those not as keen on spice). The menu also features a range of breakfast items (served all day) as well as burgers, sandwiches, and more.

While this time we stuck to happy hour, I have had other things in the past and it has always been good. The service was also great both times we were in there.

Cartopia

No visit to Portland is complete without hitting a food cart or two. While there countless vegan options, one of the best spots is Cartopia at 12th & Hawthorne. This food cart pod features several carts (almost all of which are vegan friendly), covered picknic tables, and is open late (most carts open till about 3am on weekends). Vegan options there include vegan poutine (which I some how have yet to try), fried pies, crepes, pizza, and mexican.

We got a vegan crepe from Perrîera Crêperie. Filled with vegan cream cheese, spinach, pepitas, mole, roasted peppers, and more, it was good. A little on the pricy side for street food though at $8.

We finished with a fried pie from Whiffies Fried Pies. They offer a changing menu of savory and sweet pies. When we were there they had one vegan savory option and all their sweet options were vegan. We went with peanut butter and chocolate chip, and it was a very good decision.

Sweet Hereafter

The folks behind The Bye and Bye (Portland’s first all vegan bar, mentioned in my last post on Portland), have opened another bar in Belmont. Located just down the street from Avalon nickel arcade (a great way to waste a few hours), The Hereafter offers the same sort of slightly upscale vegan bar fair as Bye and Bye. The interior is charming, although dark. The focus is on the bar here, featuring 12 taps and a fairly large wine list (all vegan of course) and a selection of house cocktails. The bar is new. They don’t have a website or even a Facebook page, so I had to track down all the info on it via other blogs or review sites.

For food we got the buffalo sub. I’ve been on sort of a buffalo kick recently so I was excited. The sub is comprised of soy curls (one of my favorite proteins) along with some sort of miso “cheese” sauce, lettuce and tomato on an artisan baguette. I think this would have been a perfectly good sandwich had they not called it a “buffalo sub”. It was lacking any spice, and there wasn’t very much sauce on the soy curls. I think the salsa that came with the chips was spicier. If I had been given this sandwich with no explanation, I would have enjoyed it, but would never have picked up that it was supposed to be buffalo.

Their signature drink “The Hereafter” is an arnold palmer (tea and lemonade) with vodka and bourbon served in a mason jar. That is one of the larger size mason jars, so at $8 it wins for budget drink. I didn’t see anything else served in mason jars, which seemed a little odd.

Their drink menu also features some more sophisticated offerings, including ”The company daiquiri”. Their take on the classic daiquiri included apple pepper syrup, and apple bitters.

While the sub didn’t blow me away, I liked The Sweet Hereafter and will be back for sure.

Voodoo Donuts

Voodoo is at the center of every visit I make to Portland. I gave all the details in this post.
