I am going down in October to see PSU and get a feel for the city. I'm graduating high school this year. PSU is my #1 school, I've heard great things about it and the city. Even if it's not, surely it's better than the rinky-dink university with open admissions where I live haha.

So where is your favorite place to eat and hangout in Portland? If you can, tell me at least one place in each district.

Thanks!

Check out all the food carts. My favorite are Viking Soul Food, and Nong's Khao Man Gai.

For something cheap, healthy, filling and tasty, I love eating at Laughing Planet. The nearest ones are in the Pearl District and NW.

Nong's is my next cart to try. I see there are 3(?) locations, is one better than the others?

For a college student, definitely the food carts. I don't know cheap bars or coffee houses in that area though but other students would.

Portland is a foodie haven. You can pretty much randomly pick a door and get a good meal as long as it's not a nation-wide chain. I find Portland's Yelp reviews to be pretty accurate especially compared to most other cities.

Second this. Also, Vivace on NW 23rd for crepes-there's always people studying in there as well-and in NE, Cruz Room on Alberta.

PDX is definitely a foodie-friendly town; it's even one of the top towns in the nation for vegans and vegetarians. Here's a list of restaurants from NWVeg if you or any friends are so inclined: Northwest VEG - Resources
