The Southeast Division Street neighborhood is one of Portland’s most formative food neighborhoods — a culinary hotspot boasting longstanding city favorites like Bollywood Theater and Kim Jong Grillin, as well as new kids on the block like Malka and Demarco’s. The pandemic has changed the shape of the neighborhood quite a bit, closing places like Pok Pok for good. Others, like Southeast Wine Collective, have turned to selling packaged goods and wine by the bottle, shutting down its restaurant.
Still, you could easily spend days perusing the array of restaurants and bars — not to mention the food carts — that line the popular neighborhood. This map, featuring everything from breakfast and brunch to bars serving creative to-go drinks, will get you started. Just remember to save some room for ice cream.
To tighten things up, we limited this map to just what you can find on SE Division, but don’t miss some of the breathtaking bites on neighboring SE Clinton: You’ll find everything the from mussel menagerie La Moule to the Scandinavian breakfast cafe Broder.
