Portland has some fantastic restaurants, if you get the chance, have a meal at one or two of them.
* Grano ~ Grano, which means "grain" in Italian, is made from specially selected durum wheat. Renowned for its al dente ("to the tooth" in Italian) texture when prepared, Grano has a firm, yet chewy consistency. It tastes like pasta but is more nutritious because in the minimal processing, only a small amount of the outer bran is removed. It is high in fiber, protein and minerals for this same reason.
