for what it's worth, I hate malls, but I do think this is pretty cool, and normalizing (pretty fresh!) vegan cuisine outside of the city. I think I went to a sneak preview of a movie in the village once? http://www.bridgeport-village.com/

It's listed as "opening soon" on the site Jess linked.

Seems weird, though, that their first expansion in the PNW would be out in the burbs. And in a shopping mall. I hope it works out though. I used to go to the Native Foods in Costa Mesa all the damn time.

It makes more sense when you look at how many Native Foods are in shopping complexes and whatnot in CA....I'm more excited for a Native Foods than a Veggie Grill, but I'm glad one of the Veggie Grills is set to open downtown, though I haven't heard where....

Bridgeport Village is like the douchiest parts of California condensed and dropped in the Oregonian suburbs. DO NOT WANT. But I am happy for you westsiders in your acquisition of another vegan option.

I am happy about Native Foods in Tigard, but happier about Veggie Grill in Beaverton. Alan, I think you are being a little too hard on us west siders. At least we have decent size gardens.

Yeah, but in Southern California, shopping complexes are pretty much all you have for commercial zoning, so it's not necessarily a choice.

I'm not trying to be hard on you, just that mall. I am sure you are all nice people, and i am jealous of your gardens.

It's officially open today. I posted some photos from the soft opening here: http://stumptownvegans.com/2011/11/09/n ... ge-tigard/

I went this weekend. Although it was crowded, service was fast and the food was pretty good, but not out-of-this-world. They grossly oversteamed the kale in my Greek gyro, and the taco meat in my husband's taco salad was fairly tasteless.

I've been a number of times now. The staff are for the most part awesome, and it's always bustling, yay! I am obsessed with the reuben, the watermelon fresca, and the pumpkin cheesecake.

I've gone there twice now... I love it! But in a slightly embarrassed way. I mean it's pretty ridiculously cheesy there! But it makes me pretty happy seeing how freaken packed it is, and with people who probably would be happy enough eating a chicken burger somewhere else if it wasn't there. I also find it hilarious that there's a store next door called 'the container store'. A store just for containers?! What!

Right, it's exactly my sentiment, as far as the atmosphere etc. The food is just ok in my opinion, little on the pricey side. Presentation is amazing though.

I think the food is actually pretty inexpensive. Have you had the size of those nachos?! Also the sweet potato fries are good. My favorite part is the lavender lemonade and watermelon fresca. Did I miss a PPK meetup?

It makes me very sad that they opened in a boojie mall.
I was hoping that they were going to open a location in close-in PDX in 2012 but it looks like we didn't make the cut:

The chicken burger was 10 bucks with no salad or fries, I think that's expensive. I also tried some Jamaican bowl that was around the same price. I will def eat there again if I happen to be down in that area.
