An export from Tokyo, Marukin Ramen serves a rotating menu of ramen options, depending on which day of the week you go. Regardless, their classic Tonkotsu ramen is always available, along with fried chicken, dumplings, and plenty of beer and sake. The Pine Street Market location is great for a quick weekday lunch or before a night out downtown, but there’s a larger spot on East Burnside you can check out before or after having a few beers at nearby Burnside Brewing Company.

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.
