One of Bo Kwon's mobile KOi Fusion trucks parks near the Providence Park entrance on game days (and late-nights), serving his Korean take on tacos and burritos. But the menu is expanded beyond the Korean-Mexican mash-up to include kalbi short rib and cheddar sliders and bowls of kimchi fried rice with tofu. [Four Square]

For Army members looking to satisfy a sweet tooth or caffeine craving, Coco Donuts' SW Avenue, just one block away from Providence Park, offers the breakfast of champions.

Looking for a cosy pub? Former mayor Bud Clark's neighborhood bar—which opened in 1967—is best known for its Reuben sandwich, which bakes a delightful mess of corned beef, sauerkraut, and swiss cheese in the oven before it hits your table (there's a vegetarian version, too). It also has a patio, which goes excellently with a cheap pitcher of PBR.

The NW 21st location of the old-school Irish pub Kells comes complete with a 10-barrel brewery and a decidedly European vibe for enjoying a game of football (as they say). Order up a plate of potato-chip nachos and sausage rolls on the outdoor patio pre- or post-game. [Kells]

You could choose between 14- and 18-inch meat- or vegetable-driven pies, but if you’re in a hurry and just need something to tide you over till the clock runs out, you could do worse than having a pre-game slice or two. And don’t forget to ask what the daily specials are.

Thanks to its super-sized kitchen, Oswaldo Bibiano’s taqiuza does more than just little tacos. Order some for sure, but don’t forget to try his fresh-fried totopos with a side of guacamole. Pop back in post-game for a margarita and a game of foosball.

This Idaho-style meat-and-potatoes spot is located literally steps away from the stadium, and offers eight varieties of French fries in five different cuts with a nearly unfathomable number of sauce and salt combinations, like sweet potato fries with blueberry ketchup with smoked sea salt. Pair your invention with your choice of a beef, bison, or vegan burger and a craft beer.

This dive-y sports bar puts out a dozen different kinds of burgers and 20-plus sandwiches. If you can’t score tickets to the game but want to feel like you’re there, take a seat at a table on the sidewalk, order a pint and some chicken wings, and you'll be able to hear the nearby Timbers Army chanting. Of course, you can always just take a seat at the bar and watch the match, too.

This iconic, high-end steakhouse is a decidedly post-game option. After being in operation for more than 70 years, it excels at in-house, dry-aged steaks and fine wines, and if those lobster mashed potatoes are on offer, do yourself the favor of ordering them.

If you're somehow able to abstain from Nong's Khao Man Gai and are looking for another quality Thai option, try this neighborhood stalwart which has been in operation since 2007. You won't find a soccer vibe, but you will find friendly service—as well as wok-fried pad thai, drunken noodles, and fried rice.
