#70: Go To Restaurants on the Willamette Week Cheap Eats List

July 14, 2009

Ken's Artisan PizzaSince I’ve created my 101 Things in 1,001 Days list I’ve been slowly working on checking out restaurants on the WW Cheap Eats list here in Portland. So after 2 years, I’ve ended up working on several Cheap Eats lists: 2007 – 2009. Really, the point of this goal was just to check out different restaurants more often — and go to Chipotle less!

Here are some of the new restaurants I’ve checked out on the Cheap Eats list:

  • Binh Minh Sandwiches – 7821 SE Powell Blvd
  • Kalga Kafe – 4147 SE Division St
  • Ken’s Artisan Bakery – 338 NW 21st Ave
  • Cha Cha Cha Broadway – 2635 NE Broadway
  • Mio Sushi – 2271 NW Johnson St
  • Malay Satay Hut – 2850 SE 82nd Ave #104
  • Saint Cupcake – 3300 SE Belmont Ave

I probably should have defined this goal a little more — like “Go to 12 new restaurants” or “Go to a new restaurant once a month”. On that note… I’m going to Chipotle. ;) Photo credit: eyeliam

    I am headed up to Portland in a few weeks for vacation…I will take your list of cheap eats with me when I go. Budget will be tight but I absolutely can not do the fast food thing while in a new city with lots of cool unique places to eat. For just a little more money you get a great meal for a good price. So I bookmarked this so I hope it gets updated!
