Bunk Sandwiches

I heard Bunk Sandwiches has some of the best sandwiches in Portland, but they don’t start serving said sandwiches until the afternoon so I was left to order one of their breakfast offerings. This was actually from over a year ago, so I don’t remember specifically what I ordered, but... Continue

Nong’s Khao Man Gai

Portland is pretty well known for their food stands and the most popular one is probably Nong’s Khao Man Gai. Khao Man Gai is essentially the Thai version of Hainan chicken, and this one is made by a woman named Nong. Get it? There’s only one thing on the menu... Continue

Blue Star Donuts

Everybody who visits Portland goes to Voodoo Doughnuts. I blame the Travel Channel and I blame travel guides, but mostly I blame people with bad taste. If you like overrated, go to Voodoo Doughnuts. If you like good, go to Blue Star Donuts. The best way to describe their donuts... Continue

Killer Burger

I was looking for a quick place to grab a snack in-between lunch and dinner while I was in Portland and ended up at Killer Burger. “But that doesn’t seem like a place for a snack.” You’re right. It’s not. But see that thing above? That’s called a Peanut Butter... Continue

Dutch Bros.

I suspect everybody who works at Dutch Bros. is high. And to be completely clear, I mean on drugs. Like they did drugs either during or right before they went to work. The employees were all laughing hysterically the entire time we were there. Which is odd, because typically when... Continue

Big Sur, CA / 10.29.2015


There aren’t a lot of options to eat when you head to Big Sur. Nepenthe is by far the most popular place (it has over a thousand reviews on Yelp), but I suspect that’s more because of the view and not the food. The food isn’t bad, per se, it’s... Continue

Village Pizzeria

My friend considers Village Pizzeria the best pizza in LA county. I’m not sure I agree, but I can’t say I disagree either since I can’t think of somewhere better off the top of my head. It’s difficult to find good New York style thin crust, so it’s impressive when... Continue

Salt & Straw

Every city has their super popular ice cream joint and Salt & Straw is Portland’s. It’s right down the street from Pine State Biscuits, so if you’re doing a food tour of Portland it’d be a good idea to do both at once. All ice cream is the same to... Continue

Pine State Biscuits

The line at Pine State Biscuits can get pretty crazy, but that’s because you’re dealing with biscuits and gravy so delicious it kicks other biscuits and gravy in the face. The food was so good I don’t even care that they forgot to bring out our food and then made... Continue

Stonehill Tavern

I needed a place to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday and was looking at local McDonald’s, but after threat of violence I ended up deciding on Michael Mina’s Stonehill Tavern in the St. Regis Resort, Monarch Beach in Dana Point. And boy was I glad I did. Aside from the price,... Continue
