Here’s an idea for a healthy Portland meal: Rent a bike (some hotels offer them to their guests) and pedal over to Ken’s Artisan Pizza. It’s on one of the city’s busiest bike corridors, about a 15-minute ride from downtown, and offers parking for 24 bikes. Then sit back and enjoy the best pizza in town, cooked to blistered-crust perfection in 2 minutes in a wood-fired, igloo-shaped oven. Ten pizza types are available, all of them topped with the freshest ingredients. You can also order a starter or side salad (I’d recommend the roasted vegetable platter). The beer and wine list offers great accompaniments to the pizzas. This is a relaxed, family-friendly place with sidewalk seating in the summer and an interior that features huge beams of old-growth Douglas fir salvaged from the famous Jantzen Beach Big Dipper roller coaster, built in 1923.
