We asked readers to name the one restaurant dish that kept you from branching out — the dish that's so satisfying, so seductive, that it ensures the rest of the menu inadvertently goes unordered. A quick survey of the results reveals why many of Portland's most popular restaurants — Pok Pok, Bunk Sandwiches, Biwa, Tasty N Sons — remain so popular (they apparently offer an insanely wide range of "siren song" dishes, making it easy for everyone to have their favorite).
Here now, a small sampling of that conversation, in the form of a map of Portland's 15 Dishes That Keep You in a Rut. These are the dishes mentioned most consistently, had the most impassioned arguments, or surprised in some way. Either way, they just scratch the surface — for the original discussion and laundry list, head here.
