True Porltand – The Rimsky-Korsakoffee House

Portland’s “Secret” Coffee House

rimsky_1 rimsky_2

From Wikipedia …

Named after Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Rimsky-Korsakoffee was one of Portland’s first coffeehouses. The classical music-themed business, serves coffee and desserts. It operates from the former living room of a reportedly haunted Craftsman-style house, built in 1902 and “nearly hidden from view” by the surrounding foliage.

The coffeehouse is owned by Goody Cable, who opened it for business in 1980 reportedly “to stop cleaning [her] house for music parties,” having hosted classical music events in her home for years prior.

Be advised the Coffee House has no exterior sign.

Rimsky-Korsakoffee House  ♦  707 SE 12th Ave.  ♦  Portland, OR 97214
(503) 232-2640

True Porltand: Hawthorne Fish House

A neighborhood place with a unique recipe


Dana and Greg Boyce opened the Hawthorne Fish House (at SE 44th Avenue and Hawthorne) based on customer demand after the success of their Corbett Fish House in Southwest Portland.

Besides their Fish & Chips, we love their Calamari, Grilled Salmon and Caesar Salad with Salmon.

They use 100% rice bran oil — the tastiest of all the cooking oils – which is not hydrogenated and contains no trans-fats. They filter the oil twice a day to keep it clean.They simply bread the fish in brown rice flour, not a batter, so their Fish & Chips and Calamari are Gluten-Free.

The combination of clean, high-quality oil and a light dusting of rice flour creates a delicious and healthful serving of fish. This process actually seals and steams the fish. Done correctly, deep frying is a dry cooking technique that produces elegant, greaseless foods with crisp coatings and succulent interiors.

Aztec Willie’s Art Truck

Aztec Willie's Art Truck

Aztec Willie's Logo

Just a block away from the Lion and the Rose, Aztec Willie’s serves up burritos, tacos and salsa dancing. When their delivery truck was attacked with graffiti, in the spirit of “True Portland” it became an “Art Truck” — a through back to the 1960′s.
