I've tried a lot of ramen places in town and Boxer hands down has the best broth, noodle texture, pork belly that melts in your mouth and my favorite, the Spicy red miso ramen (and add mushrooms). Skip the appetizers as the bowls are large and might be hard to finish.

You could spend a whole month trying all the different cafes in Portland but if you lust after an atmosphere that's warm, welcoming and prides itself on well made espresso; I highly recommend Barista. I love hearing about the espresso featured (usually 3 to choose from) and bringing my laptop to work from their large wooden table in the back. There's also great outdoor seating to soak up the sun when it's not raining. They don't have a menu for meals; just simple pastries.

I would only recommend this place to people who are curious about how far you can take the cafe experience or to people who are seeking the absolute best espresso or cup of coffee (crafted in an array of styles). Additionally their menu is small, dialed in, exquisitely executed but highly priced. Yes, you will pay $7 for their most coveted espresso and $13 for a small breakfast plate with bacon that's heavier than your middle finger. The line becomes long on the weekends but they are well organized and have a large amount of seating. So don't let a line push you away from this expensive gem.

The best carnitas in North East Portland. Their tacos are cheap but made with passion and they offer a wide variety of meat and meatless options. Their storefront with its bright green logo may turn you off but try to look past it as the family behind the counter works hard for your satisfaction.

Drinks & Nightlife
Execellent mixologists that take a detailed approach to crafting mixed drinks; especially whiskey drinks. Their small plates are well-crafted with the sliders being the most sought after. I enjoy their old fashioned, dirty popcorn, beet salad and "The Other Fried Chicken" slider.

Prost wins at customer service every time. I call it my "Cheers" bar because even after the 3rd time I visited they remembered me and made me feel like a neighbor you invite over to BBQs. They have the best selection of draft german beers, a huge selection of food carts (yes you can bring in outside food) and plenty of covered outside seating which is dog friendly.

Parks & Nature
Forest park offers a plethora of hiking trails, biking paths, mountain biking trails, unique vistas of the city and Cascade Mountain range. I enjoy the longer hikes that end up at Skyway Tavern for horseshoes and ping pong. The Southeastern part of the park is close to fun shops and a variety of food and drink options around NW 23rd and Thurman Ave.

One of the bigger Portland parks with plenty of paved and dirt trails to walk, bike, skate or scoot around on. The scenery is densely landscaped to block out the nearby roads and traffic. The lake in the middle is a popular spot to read and sunbathe during the summer.

Alberta Park is the perfect size neighborhood park with a half-mile woodchip trail, tennis courts, basketball, baseball, soccer and off leash area for your dog. It's well lit at night and great for starting your run.
