Deciding to visit Portland from Seattle is a no-brainer. It's only a three hour drive, plus there's no sales tax. But most importantly, there's a vibrant food scene just waiting to be discovered and savored by the residents and visitors alike. Here are five places to eat in Portland you don't want to miss. But these are just to get you started. Have fun uncovering more and checking them out yourself! Your friends (and your tummy) will thank you!

|The Portland Food Trucks is another must do when in Portland. A whole bunch of different food trucks in one area in downtown. You have your pick of foods and they're all high quality and delicious. Good luck making a decision on what truck to try! Or just try a few different ones! Go here to read more about my experience and to see what I tried.|
|Yeah, yeah. So we know by now that Voodoo Doughnut may not be worth the long lines and all the hype. But believe me, its worth checking out and seeing all of the crazy doughnut flavors. The décor inside is also worth seeing. It's turned into quite a tourist destination, but the locals seem tired of all the hype. But hey, it kind of put Portland on the map as far as doughnuts go, and that only brought more people to their town to spend money. Seems like a win-win to me. And this Old Dirty Bastard doughnut? Totally worth the long line. Go here to read about my visit to Voodoo Doughnuts.|
|And finally, one last food experience not to miss in Portland. The chocolate croissants at St. Honore Boulangerie are flakey and buttery, with just the right amount of chocolate. Do yourself a favor and pick one up to enjoy with an espresso. Or choose any of the other French desserts in the large display case. You won't be disappointed.
