Eat the New Neighborhood!

Now that we’ve settled into our new digs in SE Portland, we wanted to share the best eats in our new neighborhood! Next time you come to TASI you won’t have to stumble far for some yummy sustenance after shopping til’ you drop!

This hip Japanese restaurant serves four ramens, one changing seasonally, and popular small plates including steamed buns and a beloved, warm Brussels sprouts and cauliflower salad. Our TASI staff favorite is the fried chicken rice bowl with kimchi and seaweed!  It’s a must!
 
The White Owl Social Club, a largely vegan bar and restaurant with a sprawling patio, is just a few blocks from our jewelry store! With a great happy hour, outdoor fire pits and outdoor dj’s, this place is a favorite of all types of folks.  And don’t worry carnivores, they have yummy meat options for you too.
 
The darling of Portland’s local, artisanal food scene, Olympia Provisions, is a must see because Oregon’s first USDA-approved salumeria is making sausage the old-fashioned way.  Serving up authentic charcuterie boards with a bounty of meats, cheeses and pickled vegetables, Olympia Provisions is putting Portland back on the meat map.
 
 
Located on the same block as Cargo, this brewery is a favorite amongst locals in the industrial district.  Offering creative dishes such as the Chuck Norris duck wings “with a solid punch and a nice kick” and classics like beef brisket and mac n’ cheese, this brewery is the perfect spot for some yummy comfort food with a twist.
 
 
Kachka just may be America’s best Russian restaurant but you be the judge! With traditional favorites like herring under a fur coat, dumplings, cabbage rolls and pickled fish, Kachka will give you a dining experience unlike any other in town.  Oh and did we mention they have a menu of twelve house infused alcohols, from horseradish to exotic buckthorn berries and bracingly tannic beet fernet?
 
 Looking for something a little fancier? Clarklewis is a bustling eatery in the central eastside industrial district serving Italian inspired local, organic, seasonal, sustainable fare. And it’s one block away! Clarklewis has received many honors since opening, including restaurant of the year from the Oregonion and is known for its farm-to-table approach to fine dining.  Check out their happy hour from 4:30-6:30pm for some cheaper bites!
 
Come visit us at our TASI store this weekend and tell us which was your favorite!
