Dining in the South Waterfront District
South Waterfront Eateries
South Waterfront is now home to families, professionals and retirees alike. And with OHSU's continued expansion in the area, as well as the development of Zidell Yards on the horizon, it's no doubt that Portland's newest neighborhood will continue to evolve its own unique "cuisinal" personality. Here's but a sampling for your enjoyment.
With locations in Tigard, Lake Oswego and elsewhere in Portland – including the airport, visitors will be happy to know – it’s safe to say Bambuza Vietnam Kitchen is doing well for itself. Its menu is bursting with charmingly updated Vietnamese options, from spring rolls and noodles to fruit-studded salads and famous Bahn Mi sandwiches. Perfect for lunch or dinner, you can’t go wrong eating here.
