SE Division Named the 4th Best Food Neighborhood in America
Tuesday, December 23, 2014
SE Division has been steadily garnering praise from multiple venues for its diverse food options and top-notch restaurants. It should come as no surprise that at Thrillist has labeled SE Division “PDX’s food capitol” and described any attempt to sample everything the 20-block corridor has to offer as “a three-day odyssey.”
Thrillist’s two factors for list placement were the cities’ culinary history and their present. Going off this criteria, Thrillist praise SE Division for having birthed two national foodie phenomena – the ever-ubiquitous Stumptown Roasters and the newly-famous Thai restaurant Pok Pok – and for developing into a nationally recognized culinary hotbead over the past 3 years.
Additional restaurants given shout-outs were Salt & Straw, Bollywood Theater, Ava Gene’s, Nuestra Cocina, and Sok Sab Bai, as well as the corridor’s 19 food carts.
