My 5 Favorite Restaurants In Portland, ME

1. Slab

A quaint restaurant near Monument Square: In the summers, they offer outdoor seating! Best known for their “hand slab,” a one pound slice of Sicilian style pizza. The hand slab is made with fluffy luna bread, tomato sauce, mozzarella, and provolone. Only $6 for a slice! Or get a half slab, with 4 slices for $24.

2. Bubble Maineia

A small Taiwanese and Chinese restaurant located near the Nickelodeon Movie Theater. Best known for their bubble tea and steamed buns. Their bubble tea come in many flavors; my favorites are coconut, almond, and chocolate. If you’re a tapioca pearl lover — you can get extra “bubbles” in your drink! Their steamed buns are great — only $1.68 a bun. They come in vegetable, red bean, chicken, and pork.

3. B Good

There are two B Good’s in Maine, but I prefer this location. B Good puts in an effort to buy local, and are conscientious about where their meat and produce comes from. I love their kale and grain bowls — my favorite is their spicy avocado and lime bowl with quinoa.

4. The Green Elephant

An Asian inspired restaurant that serves reasonable portions. They serve an abundant variety of vegetarian and vegan food options, and make an effort to support local businesses.

5. Mi Sen Noodle Bar

A reasonably priced Thai restaurant with light, refreshing options. Their menus label which meals are spicy, local favorites, gluten free, and vegetarian. Their curries, while quite spicy, are incredibly delicious. The green curry with coconut milk is my favorite, as well as the crab rangoons.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
