Portland is the overall best food city in America, according to a new study released by WalletHub.
To compile the ranking, WalletHub looked at 180 U.S. cities and measured them by affordability, number of restaurants per capita, accessibility of gourmet and specialty foods, craft beers, wineries and more. The study also looked at the mix of dining options available – the ratio of full-service restaurants to fast food – as well as the number of food trucks and food festivals per capita.
Portland is known for the number and quality of its restaurants, as well as a vibrant food cart scene.
Seattle came in at seventh on the list, and Vancouver – an up-and-coming food destination – jumped into the ranking at 26. Salem was No. 66.
The Oregonian/OregonLive food writer Michael Russell recently compiled his annual list of the city’s best food carts, visiting more than 70 distinct food cart pods, eating burgers, barbecue, birria, breakfast sandwiches, Honduran baleadas.
