A Foodie's Guide to 3 Must-Visit Portland Restaurants
Get ready to tantalize your taste buds as we dive into the vibrant food scene of Portland, exploring three diverse restaurants that are sure to leave a lasting impression. Recently, I had the chance to visit Heart Bar, a local spot where I indulged in their coffee beans. The food was decent, though it didn't quite hit the mark for my vegan palate. The service could use a bit of a boost in the friendliness department. On a brighter note, their drinks were top-notch and the karaoke was a blast. While it may not be my first choice for vegan options, it's a great place for a fun night out.
Machetes PDX Specializes in Colossal Quesadillas of the Same Name
It’s machete season in Portland. No, that’s not a reference to Danny Trejo, or Jason Voorhees’ weapon of choice, but to the new pop-up Machetes PDX, which has been selling out of its Mexican street food all over town since July. Started by husband-and-wife team Diego and McKenna Palacios, the business gets its name from long, folded quesadillas shaped like a blade. And when I say long, I mean long. Every one of the pop-up’s machetes comes draped across two paper plates, which barely contain their length.

Readers respond: Hospitality’s post-pandemic hangover
In your article on taprooms attempting to rebuild their customer base, you fail to mention the biggest reason that people, post-COVID-19, are staying away from taprooms, restaurants and other venues like this, (“Portland taproom owners come together to dream up ideas amid a post-pandemic hangover,” Nov. 5). It is that the price of food and drink has risen significantly. While I applaud the efforts to raise the minimum wage high enough so that people on it don’t qualify for food assistance and other taxpayer-funded social programs, doing this has changed the nature of entertainment and reduced demand for it. There will be a fallout, and it is inevitable that some restaurants and taprooms will fail as the market shrinks. People would do well to remember that the vibrant food and drink entertainment scene that we had in years past was funded on the backs of countless low-paid food workers.

Where to Eat This Week
5345 SE Foster Road, 503-788-0866, mng890.wixsite.com/an-xuyen-bakery. 7 am-6 pm Tuesday-Saturday, 7 am-3 pm Sunday. For nearly 25 years, An Xuyên Bakery has sat unassumingly on Foster Road. The self-proclaimed “Authentic Artisan Pan Asian Pacific Bakery and Deli” serves an array of sweet and savory goods for almost absurdly affordable prices. Upon walking in, you better make up your mind fast, since a line will form behind you almost immediately. Start with a lunch item like a jalapeño-filled bánh mi prepared on the same crusty yet fluffy baguettes that the bakery supplies to numerous restaurants around town. Once your main course is checked off, end with dessert—we recommend a meticulously decorated red velvet cupcake.
