Portland Expo Food Review

Margo Mallar weighs in on the food available at the Portland Expo concession stand in an article in Tuesday’s Portland Daily Sun.

The pulled pork was more of a slider than a sandwich, not enough to share but it was quite tasty, especially when liberally slathered with Binga’s barbecue sauce. The $8 lobster roll, however, was an abomination. It was flavorless and had a mealy texture and looked like the regurgitated krill that mama penguins feed their babies.

The newspaper also included a feature article that finds Portland ahead of the curve on many of the top trends identified in the National Restaurant Association’s What’s Hot in 2010 survey, especially when it comes to eating local and organic.
