PORTLANDThe O's lead food critic Michael Russell, who recently shed his cloak of restaurant-critic anonymity, just ranked the city's top 10 sushi spots. Interestingly, sustainable-sushi-sensation Bamboo Sushi dropped from fourth to sixth, in rank. And getting the official thumbs up, the reincarnation of Hokusei, Fukami, on SE Belmont, ranked third. See the full list here. [Oregonian]

NORTHEAST—Not a week after Maritime opened as a food cart—spurring Oregon seafood lovers and fans of chef Andrew Mace (Le Pigeon alum) to flock to the parking lot in front of Han Oak—it exited the food cart game and became a pop-up. Now you can taste those salt and pepper Oregon bay shrimp select days and nights for lunch and dinner at Han Oak, with other pop-up locations planned. Supposedly, Maritime is on track to open as a brick and mortar in 2018, too. Find out when and where Maritime will be on its Instagram. [PoMo]

NORTHEAST—Is it possible that Portland has just gotten its first taste of Burmese food? The Burmasphere food cart held its grand opening June 25 at Piedmont Station Food Carts, at 625 NE Killingsworth, and owner Tommy Schopp says he opened the cart due to a love of Burmese food and the overall lack of it in Portland. Expect curries, tea leaf salads, chickpea fritters, and ghost chili ice cream, mostly in the $9 range. [Oregonian]
