As an enthusiastic eater interested in local food economies, I expected to enjoy myself on my Forktown Food Tour during my visit to Portland. What could be better than three hours of wandering around a funky city neighborhood, being guided to the best tastes?
But I was truly surprised and impressed by the excellence of our tour. Our friendly and funny guide, Kelsey, led us to seven fantastic food spots around Mississippi Avenue in NE Portland. She gave us a flavor of the history of the city and told us about the current happenings in the neighborhood as we walked and ate. There were only 8 people on my tour, which made it comfortable and personal, with plenty of time to ask questions. Everything was well-organized and ran smoothly and on time. They happily accommodated me as a vegetarian (I noted my dietary preferences when I registered).
And, let me tell you, they are not joking when they say this is an eating tour, not a tasting tour. I had to pocket my veggie burger from Little Big Burger for later so that I would have stomach space for the second half of the tour! All of the food was delicious and different--a well-crafted variety of stops.
I only wish I lived closer to Portland so that I could sign up for the other tours! I am confident that any tour Forktown offers would be a hit with tourists and locals alike.
