Yelp – Portland’s Top Bites 2013

What’s hot in food according to Yelp

2013 was a heck of a year. Our soccer team shamed Seattle, the Blazers came in like a wrecking ball, and the restaurant scene exploded like a shaken PBR. So your friends at the Weekly Yelp decided to poll Yelpers for the best things they put in their mouth over this past year. Behold Yelpers’ top Portland picks for 2013!

weekly yelp

Salt & Straw (Alberta Arts) The fantastic flavors from Salt & Straw got more votes than any other PDX bite. Stephanie A confirms: “there’s clearly nothing missing from this ice cream. Every flavor is thoughtfully crafted and balanced to perfection. Surely there’s a flavor you’ll love and it’s well worth the visit.”

Tasty ‘N’ Alder (West End – Downtown) The Korean Fried Chicken scored mad Yelp love, but many dishes are in the mix of mentions. Michelle H gets mesmerized by “plate after plate of delicious food.” No matter what you order you’ll be “seriously satiated on all fronts. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect.”

Shut Up and Eat (Eastmoreland) Yelpers love the Broad Street Bomber, which James D H declares is a “must have. This sandwich is a monster. Fresh baguette filled with beef, peppers, onions, and cheese. Glad I’m a big boy. This sandwich is a monster. Mm-mm. Gotta stop writing. Must destroy sandwich!”

Grassa (West End – Downtown) While Yelpers are split on what to order here, Peerantath C would probably say it doesn’t matter. He’s “had just about everything on the menu, and has been satisfied, if not extremely pleased with each of the experiences.” And that hand-made pasta? “Perfectly al dente.”

To prove that we’re the most bike friendly city in the country, some folks thought that this cold steel bike rack could be made a lot more inviting.
