New Scandinavian Restaurant Near Airport
Located in a sleekly designed modern space in an odd section of Northeast Portland, I recently had the pleasure of taking lunch at this already popular family friendly establishment. I sampled a light and fresh open faced shrimp and egg salad sandwich on rye bread, some delicate gravlax salmon with greens and cucumbers, a side cup of vegetable soup, and shared a big plate of meatballs with cream gravy and lingonberry sauce, all for under $12.00. Yeah, you guessed it: the Ikea store cafeteria out by the airport is now open for business. It’s a guilty pleasure certainly, but I have to say, the cafeteria is bright, airy, and has a great view of planes taking off and landing at PDX. Would I drive out there for dinner? Probably not, but it sure beats the hot dogs and nachos with cheese at the Home Depot just down the road.
