Synopses & Reviews
The fair city of Portland has a slew of affectionate nicknames City of Roses, Stumptown, Rip City, Puddletown and Little Beirut to name a few, but I've dubbed it the City That Never Stops Eating. Portland's 100 Best Places to Stuff Your Faces is a meticulously-researched guide to Portland’s very finest locally-owned restaurants, bakeries, pizzerias, chocolate boutiques, scoop shops, food carts and specialty markets. As you eat your way from one end of the book to the other, you'll explore over two dozen of Portland's most charismatic neighborhoods while, yes, stuffing your face (elegantly or otherwise) with the exceptional edibles this good food-obsessed city is famous for. I hope you don’t get indigestion and a muffin top, but if so, welcome to my world.
