Berlu

$$$$
Hours:SUN
10AM-1PM

There’s nothing else quite like Berlu in Portland. This minimalist Inner Southeast spot gives off Nordic vibes with concrete floors and blonde wood accents, serves an artfully plated modern Vietnamese tasting menu, and is one of the best places to spend a few hours eating mind-blowing dishes. Reservations are a must for a regularly changing dinner of plates like pink shrimp with lychee and fermented flowers or black cod with durian. On Saturday and Sunday mornings Berlu transforms into a bakery that turns out Vietnamese sweets like the grass green bánh bò nướng, a naturally gluten-free Vietnamese pastry with a chewy honeycomb interior that can be ordered through a takeout window.

Salt & Straw

If you have ice cream in Portland, it should definitely be from Salt & Straw. Try one of their seasonal flavors or a classic, like honey lavender.
