5. Forktown Food Tours

You may notice a theme as to why Portland is so alluring: Its food scene is hard to skip. While difficult to define Rose City’s cuisine, it’s clearly been influenced by a number of global tastes. Forktown Food Tours explores these myriad flavors by taking small walking groups around a specific Portland area (my group of eight explored downtown and the Pearl District) to eat and drink—not merely to sample—at a selection of restaurants. Highlights included a crispy chicken wing smothered in a sweet/spicy Korean sauce at food cart Food Koma, a pork meatball banh mi at Lardo and uber-rich drinking chocolate (hot cocoa’s sophisticated big sister) at Cacao, which also accommodates private tastings for small groups.
