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

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.

Next up is Botto's BBQ at number 54 on Yelp's top 100. Botto's is craft barbecue with a delicious attitude. Need to feed a bunch of people something extra delicious? You can order a whole slow smoked brisket at Botto's. Ribs slow smoked to perfection, sliders, brisket burnt ends glazed and crisped, and brisket jalapeno poppers are just a few of the delicious options at Botto's BBQ. Can we make a suggestion?

Last up on our list is Gumba, which was number 98 of Yelp's top 100. The food at Gumba isn't Italian food, but it's inspired by Italy.

Some things you'll want to try when you're there are the Lasagna Rotolo (layered with summer pepper, whipped goat cheese, and roasted seasonal mushroom duxelles with sweet potato puree and egg), cannoli, warm banana bread, and charred calamari (marinated in mint, parsley, and chives with red bell pepper and served with herbed chickpeas).
