1. Pok Pok

3226 SE Division St
Portland, OR 97202
(503) 232-1387
Visit Website
Andy Ricker restaurant packs in the spice and flavors of Thailand — and yes, you can expect a kick. Order some small plates with big flavor, like the fish sauce wings or the muu sateh (pork loin skewers marinated in coconut milk and turmeric), but better yet, order from the group takeout menu for a party. Get the signature papaya pok pok salad to balance out the kaeng hang leh, pork belly and pork shoulder curry originating from northern Thailand, and the sai ua samun phrai, grilled sausage and pork rinds served with a spicy green chile dipping sauce.

2. Lardo East

Copy Link
1212 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 234-7786
Visit Website
Sandwiches? Say no more. The name Lardo might say it all: mouthwatering, meaty, two-hands kind of heroes. What started as a food cart in SE Portland has become a pork sensation. Order what Lardo is best known for, the double burger that’s drenched in pork fat — yes, really — plus the French fries that are — surprise! — also drenched in pork fat. This is no lunch for the light-hearted (or those with a light appetite).

3. Poke Mon

1485 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 894-9743
Visit Website
It should be no surprise that Portland has Pacific foods on lock. For those craving a taste of Hawaii and a quick poke bowl, Poke Mon (pun intended, maybe?) will provide the fresh flavors of the islands. Order some next-level bowls with authentic toppings, like the spicy ahi donburi bowl with fresh minced ahi, sweet onion, cucumber, bubu arare (crispy puffed rice pellets), sweet shoyu, nori, and a creamy sauce on top.

4. Bamboo Sushi

Copy Link
404 SW 12th Ave Portland, Portland
OR, 97205 USA
(503) 444-7455
Visit Website
Order in from the world’s first certified organic sushi restaurant and feel good about what you’re about to consume. Just because you’re staying in doesn’t mean you can’t order from a selection of nigiri and the chef’s choice sashimi from the pick of the day. But don’t miss the specialty rolls as well: Fire up for the PDX Roll, made with tempura shishito peppers.

5. Boke Bowl

Copy Link
1028 SE Water Ave
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 719-5698
Visit Website
One of Portland’s most beloved ramen spots, Boke Bowl serves up handmade noodles with the best of them. You won’t regret going with a more traditional bowl, like the pork dashi ramen, but get a little adventurous and order the seasonal ramen. The Korean fried chicken is also not to be missed: It’s brined for 48 hours and fried in a garlic and ginger vinegar soy sauce.

6. Nong's Khao Man Gai

Copy Link
1003 SW Alder St.
Portland, OR 97205
(971) 255-3480
Visit Website
Khao man gai, or Haianese chicken served with rice, is a Thai specialty and is the hallmark of this wildly popular restaurant. Order in the hearty yet aromatic dish — the rice simmers in chicken fat and a slew of Thai spices, and it comes with a side of heartwarming chicken soup on the side — and order a side of fresh veggies as well to freshen your palate. An alternative dish to try: the khao kha muu, pork braised in cocoa powder and Coca Cola and served on a bed of jasmine rice.

7. Olympia Provisions NW

Copy Link
1632 NW Thurman St
Portland, OR 97209
(503) 894-8136
Visit Website
Meat and cheese is the name of the game at Olympia Provisions — good news if you’re feeding a crowd and need something easy to serve. Order in all sorts of charcuterie and cheese boards, or get fancy and order a family dinner. It comes with a whole rotisserie chicken, salad, schmaltz potatoes, and — get this — a chocolate salami dessert board.

8. Trifecta Annex

Copy Link
126 SW 2nd Ave
Portland, OR 97204
It’s carbs galore at Trifecta Annex, and no one is complaining — especially not when you try one of chef Ken Forkish’s melt-in-your-mouth croissants. Forkish, whose cookbook on baking and bread won a James Beard award, serves up some of his well-known pastries to order in, but also his unique pizza pies. Up the ante for pizza night and try the traditional marinara pizza or the Brooklyn pie: sauce, aged and fresh mozzarella, capicola, pickled jalapeños, and fresh Oregon honey.
4090 N Williams Ave
Portland, OR 97227
XLB, Portland’s newest dumpling joint from Jasper Chen, is getting all sorts of buzz — no better reason than to order in and beat the crowds. Order in the boazi (Taiwanese buns) in all varieties — pork and cabbage and mushroom and chive — with noodles and sides like garlic eggplant with tofu and peas.

10. Figlia Americana

1100 SE Grand Ave
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 477-6590
Visit Website
Hearty Italian-American on the go? Lunch is made. Stay on the lighter side with a range of salads, like the uber-trendy cauliflower and Umbrian lentil salad served with sesame vinaigrette, roasted parsnips, and yogurt, or a soup on the side. On the hearty side, order the classic American grilled cheese and turkey sandwich; but there are the Italian staples too, like the mortadella or prosciutto cotto sandwiches. No way you’ll still be hungry afterwards.
