Welcome back to The Required, our expert-powered version of a "best of" list, assembled by tallying up the all-time most recommended places on ChefsFeed. Read on to plan your next trip—or just to be sure you've checked all the boxes on your home turf.

Boke Bowl

Formerly a once monthly pop up, Boke Bowl’s brick and mortar has elements of a traditional ramen shop (communal seating) with the things you’d come to expect from Pacific Northwest Cuisine (hyper-seasonal ingredients and creative flavor pairings). Chef Patrick Flemming is in constantly experimenting with new flavors and offerings when it comes to his ramen game and rice bowls. Our experts say the Chicken Dashi with Ginger, Turmeric and Sweet Potato Noodles and the Vegan Caramelized Fennel Dashi with Eggplant and Rice Tots are the ones to try.

Guero PDX

aWith humble beginnings as a food cart dispensing crazy-good Jalisco style Mexican Tortas to the good people of Portland, chefs Megan Sanchez and Alec Morrison have landed themselves a brick and mortar to better serve their fan base. Of all their ridiculously crunchy, chewy, savory meat-filled rolls of joy to try, our experts say that The Desayuno–a breakfast torta with a fried egg, avocado, braised beef, and chicarrón de queso (say whaaaat?) is the one for first timers to sink their teeth into. With a brightly tiled bar and Margarita slushies, Guero is the perfect place to soak up the sun in Portland, never mind the weather.
