Where to get lunch is a common office debate, and the reader nominations for our survey run a full range of Portland restaurants.  Out of 652 votes, there were 110 different restaurants suggested! One surprise is how well Boke Bowl placed – it seems like they just opened! Here is the listing of the top ten. The percentages dropped to almost nothing below that number.

Out of 652 votes:

1. Bunk Sandwiches – 11% of the vote. My review

  • (Bunk Bar) 1028 Southeast Water Avenue #130  Portland, OR 97214  Map
    (503) 894-9708. Note that Bunk Bar is a um… bar/live music venue, but has similar food.

2. Boke Bowl – 8% 1028 Southeast Water Avenue  Portland, OR 97214  Map  (503) 719-5698

7. (tie)

8. (tie)

  • Pok Pok – 2.8% 3226 Southeast Division Street  Portland, OR 97202  Map  (503) 232-1387  My review
  • Evoe – 2.8% 3735 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland OR 97214  Map  (503) 232-1010

My favorite? I rotate among a group: Meat Cheese Bread, Olympic Provisions NW, Bunk Sandwiches. I love lunch at Pok Pok, but it’s too far out-of-the-way. My go to place is OP NW, as I live nearby (in a box under the freeway)
