82nd Avenue has long been heralded as a beacon of used car lots, seedy strip clubs, and some of the greatest food, namely Asian and Latin American, that Portland has to offer. However, the menus at such restaurants can be a crapshoot for the more confounded among us: "Should I spring for the sea cucumber, or regress to the comforts of Kung Pao chicken?" All too often, 82nd Avenue's most spectacular specialties dodge the rookie epicurean gaze.
That's where this map comes in, telling you not only the best Asian spots (plus one outlier) to eat on 82nd, but specifically what to eat there. Chinese and Vietnamese noodle soups dominate, so be sure to keep this list handy for the winter, as well. Without further ado, here are the 10 Eater-endorsed essentials spanning the length of 82nd Avenue.
