East Portland Restaurants

  • Higher Priced but Well Regarded Mexican

    Photos on the wall feature actual food growing practices in Mexico, which is a switch from the typical Mexican establishments that have various stereotypical Mexican tiles and artwork on the walls.The prices are a little higher than are typical for area Mexican restaurants, but inner SE Hawthorne Blvd tends to be a popular place for...

  • Decent Thai with Reasonable Prices

    A pleasant place that is somewhat hidden behind nearby storefronts, Thai Spoon has slightly lower prices than usually found in Thai restaurants in Portland's near east side. The menu doesn't go on for pages, but what is offered here is the typical offering plus some specialties.

  • Vegan and More at Economical Price

    While it advertises itself as a deli, and there are quite a number of choices here, but a certain set of pre-made selections are available on the menu above the counter. These change regularly. The quality and quantity available for the price is a pretty good value, especially considering that many places that attempt to specialize in vegan,...

  • The Big Pink Restaurant at 49th & Powell

    Perhaps the most unique feature of this southeast establishment is the Frida Kahlo artwork that decorates the walls. They prepare a number of regional dishes from Veracruz, Oaxaca and Yucatan, as well as the more common Americanized dishes to suit local tastes here. They have a full bar, with a wide assortment of types of Tequila, which can also...

  • Good Thai Food but Somewhat More...

    In recent years SE Division has developed a number of somewhat more expensive restaurants than it used to have. This restaurant is part of this conversion of Division to a more extensive mix of restaurant types. While it is somewhat more expensive than what used to be found along SE Division, it is still a reasonably good bargain compared to what...

  • Somewhat Unique Thai Economically Priced

    Willamette Week really likes this restaurant, as it provides a number of unusual Thai dishes that can not be obtained at the typical Portland Thai restaurant. It also does so at an affordable price, winning it a location in both the Willamette Week's Restaurant Guide and the Cheap Eats guide.As I am not a food follower, I will point you to their...


East Portland Shopping

  • Art Supplies: More than a Frame Shop

    The reason I am including this little southeast Portland store here is that I have seen quite a number of people all around Portland painting things on canvas, or taking photos, or otherwise doing things that require art supplies.I am no expert in the cost of art supplies, but the framing offered by them is quite a good value (good price for what...

  • Smaller Store Here, but Still Powell's

    Powell's Books is a well known book store in Portland. However, most people think of the Powell's in downtown Portland on Burnside. They actually have several stores, including SE Hawthorne. While it is much smaller than the main store on Burnside, it is still a considerably good sized book store. Find good deals on used books, or maybe look at...

East Portland Off The Beaten Path

    On May 27, 1998, bicyclist Matt Schekel was killed at the intersection of SE Taylor and 37th Avenue, after a delivery truck ran a stop sign.An improvised memorial was created from bike parts and other pieces at first, and as things went on more and more appeared at this intersection.This more permanent memorial was created later.This memorial...

  • Fountain at Multnomah Street & Grand...

    There really isn't too much to say about this fountain. It goesn't go very high, and it isn't a spectacular rush of water. It is interesting in that it has a lot of natural plants growing in it. Unfortunately, during most hours of the day, the joyful sound of the water playing across the rocks is heavily drowned out by all the nearby traffic...

  • Fish Sculpture at SE 58th & Salmon...

    What do you do when the tree out in front of you house needs to be cut down due to rot?You could just cut it down and leave a stump I suppose.Or, you could have someone who is artistic with a chain saw show up and cut it into a creative sculpture, such as a fish.Naturally, on Salmon Street, the selected sculpture would be a salmon.Notice that the...
