Portland loves its booze, but the city’s relationship with sake is unparalleled. Thanks to its sake brewery and its status as a sister city with Sapporo, the Rose City is believed to consume more sake per capita than any other city in the United States. For those unfamiliar or hesitant to order a full bottle, Japanese restaurants and sake bars offer lots of affordable by-the-glass and sampler flights, beautifully paired with sushi, American Kobe Beef, or even a pho-spiced bone marrow luge.
This map is your guide to the places with the most noteworthy sake lists in PDX. Note that the listings are not ranked, but organized geographically.
