Hot dog place in Portland Area?

Apart from the ones mentioned by extramsg, I also like The Doghouse on E Burnside and 29th. I get the Kosher-style with 'kraut, mustard, relish and onions. Tasty, tasty tastes.

[PDX] Green Onions is closing

Why, oh why?! That makes me sad. I did not eat there enough, but I sure liked it. Do you happen to know when it will serve its final tasty meal?

[PDX] Portland Snow Cones?

Where are they? Where can I get some? It's hot and summery and without snow cones, my life feels cold and meaningless.

Thank you in advance.

[PDX] Nachos in Portland.

Update: These nachos rule. The tacos are also delicious. The regular nachos (without meat) are 3.50 and includes avocado and tomato. With meat, it's 4.50. My girlfriend and I split the regular and were quite full. Amazing quality too - very fresh.

Oh, and I asked for it without lettuce, since I believe lettuce to be the devil ... in Mexican food, at least. Otherwise, lettuce and I are tight. Word.

This taco truck rules and closes at 8pm. Those are the facts. Thanks to Brian for the recommendation!

Good food in Scappoose, St. Helens (OR) or Longview, WA?

Howdy y'all. I will be going through these towns and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on lunch/dinner/food options. The culinary treats of these burgs are rarely discussed, so hopefully some of you will just be frothing to share your opinion. Froth away:

Thanks in advance.

best happy hour (PDX)

Helloooooo kosmonut.

Would you happen to remember some prices for Olea's Happy Hour? Also, how much food is provided? A filling amount? Sounds grand but possibly pricey.

best happy hour (PDX)

JillO, tell us a little about those. Price/food options/etc.? I've never been to any that you mentioned and am also quite interested in Happy Hours.

As far as those I've been to, and like, here we go:

Jake's Crawfish: [3-6:00/10-12:00 Sun-Thurs; 11:00-Close Fri-Sat]

1.95 menu with great stuff like the Tillamook Cheeseburger, Sushi Roll and much more. 2.95 menu has the excellent fish and chips and of course, more. 3.95 menu? I haven't tried anything from it. Most of the options will definitely fill you up - don't make the mistake of ordering more than one plate if you aren't familiar with their portions. That said, a few dishes don't offer a heck of a lot of food (Pot stickers, spring rolls, chicken wings), but all are quite tasty.

Huber's: [4-6:00 / 9:30 to Close]

Not as tasty as Jake's, but pretty good. Also, you get slightly less food here, but it's still quite a bit. 1.95 for most of the things (Turkey Sandwich, bowl of soup, salads, etc.) and 2.95 for a few others.

Henry's: [3-6:00 / 9:00 to Close: Sun-Thurs; 10:30 - Close: Fri-Sat]

Crowded place but yummy food. A lot of 1.95 items (macaroni and cheese, sushi rolls, caesar salad, soup) but an equal amount of better-tasting 2.95 and 3.95 items.

Those three are the more popular of Happy Hours around. I'll write about some more obscure ones later.

Cheaply eating,

Great Chinese Noodles in PDX

I recently visited Green Onions and enjoyed it. I've never been to Hong Kong so I can't speak for its authenticity, but it seems much more authentic that the typical American Chinese restaurant.

I got the Won Ton Noodle soup and thought it was massively tasty. The noodles were the real winners, I'd say - more of a wheaty texture than your typical noodle. The broth was chicken-based, I'd guess, but it didn't stand out in any way. The won tons were excellent. All together, it was comforting and yummy soup.

I will be going again. Any recommendations on what I should get?

[PDX] Nachos in Portland.

Alright, friends,

I'm looking for cheap nachos with two main features: quantity and quality.

I don't want no fancy plates costing 7 bucks and tasting like fennel. I want good, meaty (or vegetariany) Taqueria-style nachos. The kind that costs less than 5 bucks and could easily satisfy two people.

Cha Cha Cha's are good, taste-wise, but definitely lack in size. But that's the sort of style I'm looking for, I guess. I'm definitely open to other options.

And what's the deal with Tres Hermanos' (Tigard) "nachos"? There isn't any cheese! It's literally just chips and salsa. This is failure at its worst. And that's not what I'm looking for.

Thanks in advance for your helpful help,

-Nate

Decent Fruit pie in Portland??

Whole pies are totally sold there. I have yet to purchase one because I know I would eat it in one sitting and that would, like, kill my figure. Try the marionberry.

Decent Fruit pie in Portland??

Go to the Bipartisan Cafe for all your pie needs. Tasty, tasty, tasty. The crust is as amazing as the filling and both are flavor-locomotives on a one-way track to satisfaction. Oh yeah, and it's 3 bucks for a nice, ample slice. Deal with that.

PDX - The best of the best cheap food.

Greetings, friends and neighbors.

I just moved to Portland and am a massive fan of inexpensive yet great food. My mother calls me "cheap". I prefer "tastefully thrifty". We're both right. So in short, I am in search of the amazing places that leave both pocketbook and gut full and satisfied.

I'm currently making the taqueria/taco truck circuit and will (in the next few weeks) be covering the italian, chinese, delicatessen and pizza scenes. So what I'm asking of y'all is information. Lead me down the golden paths of gastro(eco)nomic delight. Thanks in advance! I owe you one.
