If you are looking for cheap eats in Portland, I highly recommend Pho Green Papaya. Their lunch special is a killer cheap eat out. $6 for a large vegan pho with tofu, string beans, tube mushrooms, and scallions. Its so big that I hardly could finish it. I love pho and I'm super lucky to live in Portland where vegan pho is not hard to find. Almost every pho place in Portland downtown region has a vegan option. Though I don't know how they make vegan pho broth, 'cause the broth is made from oxtail. They also have many other vegan plates. There is the vegetarian/vegan spring roll. Deep fried to perfection. Its got string sliced woodear mushroom, bamboo shoots, cabbage and tofu. Its $1 per spring roll. The restaurant environment is not much of a place for romantic dining. It feels a bit like a shack or hole in the wall with caged up windows. There are more outdoor seatings than indoor seatings. The place is usually packed during lunchtime filled with local office white collar workers.
