Having written restaurant reviews for vegans for years, folks often ask us just where they should eat in Portland, OR, and we’re always happy to offer advice.
Now, there are obvious stand-out choices, and some decision-making to take into consideration: How long are you here for? What part of town are you staying in? Are you looking for brunch? Are you seeking gluten-free or raw options? Do you require a burrito? etc.Thinking about the hundreds of vegan bloggers arriving soon for the Vida Vegan Bloggers Conference who will have their hands full and may be wondering the same, we recently sat down in our downtown studio and recorded this casual podcast about our picks for dining, where to stay, where to stop, and what else to do in Portland, OR.
Overall, the two Stumptown Vegans agreed on the vast majority of suggestions, making them super Stumptown Vegans approved!
The entire podcast, where we give our live recommendations, can be heard over at the main site here, along with our show notes, and via Itunes (bear with us if it’s not up yet).
Curious about the vegan lifestyle? Just starting out on a plant-based path, and confused? Unsure how to order at restaurants? Wondering if you’ll ever find a vegan cheese you’ll like? How do you survive when you’re the only vegan you know? Looking to build, or join, a vegan community?
Join the Stumptown Vegans as they answer these questions, and more, from their built-up mailbag. This conversation includes notes about local, travel, and chain dining.
