Susie Knows NE MLK Restaurants

As a Portland realtor, I’ve driven down NE MLK Blvd a thousand times. But I’ve never really realized what a bustling restaurant row it has become until recently! Sure, there’s the fabulous Toro Bravo and Russell Street Bar-B-Que near the Nike Factory Store, but as you keep going north more and more delicious destinations have sprung up.

My favorites:

Quick lunch: Falafel pitas at Cedo’s Falafel and Gyros

Fun snack: Alloco (fried plantains!) and ginger beer at Akadi PDX (West African cuisine)

Tasty dinner: Enchiladas at La Cocina

Foodie splurge: Pre-fixe monthly meal + wine pairings at Ned Ludd (new winery + menu each month!)

Vegan score: Vegan platter at Sengatera Ethiopian Restaurant

Divine breakfast sandwich: Bushel and Peck Bakeshop

Vintage imbibing: Rotating nightly DJs, kale tart + a rosemary-infused cocktail at Beech Street Parlor (a big ole house!)

What’s your favorite on MLK?
