Sell yourself, Portland!

thanks for helping me get geared in the right direction. i'll definately make use of the search feature.

in the meantime, i am still looking for YOUR thoughts. searching through threads is a great way to start to get knowledge, but if we all just searched through other threads, nothing new would be added. so here's your chance. time to tell everyone about that tiny hole in the wall with the great soups that no one has talked about. or the diner with that incredible omelet which has been flying under everyone's radar. tell all!

Sell yourself, Portland!

So I am visting a friend in Portland for a few days in a couple of weeks. I've never been there, but I will be taking notes to see if Portland might be a good place to move to (kind of ready for a change of scenery). I'd like to see how the food scene is there, and I could use some recommendations.

-I'd like to try food that exemplifies Portland/Pacific Northwest cuisine.

-I don't usually spend big bucks on meals as it is, so I probably wouldn't
in the future. On special occasions I make exceptions, but I'm looking
for places that you would go to casually with friends.

-I know nothing about Portland geography so any tips would also be great.

-If there are any good farmers markets around, they would be fantastic to visit!

So, what can you recommend?
