I was reading this article on Eater about Portland and was struck by something. It’s a long article that has some good things and bad things to say about Portland restaurants.

At one point she says “Nong’s Khao Man Gai, famously the first place you should go when you land in Portland.”
If you’ve visited us here in Portland, we’ve probably given you takeout from Nong’s. If not, you should know the default meal is soup (perfect), chicken (perfect), rice (perfect), and a cup of sauce (somehow better than perfect).

Nong’s is the first restaurant you should go to when you land in the best food city in America. AND WE ORDER IT FOR DELIVERY LIKE IT WAS DOMINO’S.
