Every year Yelp puts out a top 100 list of restaurants so you’ll always be up to date on the absolute best spots to eat in the United States.  This year three Portland, Oregon restaurants made the cut for having mouth watering food that will make your taste buds explode.

Three PDX Restaurants Make Yelp’s 2023 Top 100 List

We all know Portland is a foodie paradise.  From restaurants that feature great homecooked meals, to five star dining, and the best food truck eats you’ve ever had.  Yelp was quick to pick up on three PDX favorites that you’ll want to know about.

Malka ended up being number 29 on Yelp’s top 100 list.  This restaurant offers up three-course prix fixe meals (a meal made up of several courses all served at a total fixed price).  The current cost is $60 each, and you must have a reservation to get in, but it’s so worth it.  From Lemongrass tamarind pork rib, to Umi organic ramen noodles with curry Bolognese (beef and pork), this is a PDX experience you don’t want to miss out on.  Check out the full menu here.
