Food Mountain aims to keep up with the abundance of vegan food offerings & news in Portland, OR. We are vegans who want to support all the options here by sharing them with you so that they continue to thrive and grow.
I tried going to a place that you posted about, but it’s no longer there/open. What’s up?
We’re really sorry that happened, but please check the website/Twitter feed/Facebook page for a business before visiting. We try to keep up to date on the status of businesses we post about, but due to our limited time and resources, we can’t keep current on everything. If you know of any changes to a business, please let us know so that we can share.
Do you endorse/like or have you personally tried all the food featured?
No. We don’t have the time/resources to try everything we talk about. We also know everyone has personal tastes so we are not trying to pass any judgment on what’s out there. We just want to let you know it exists so that you can decide what you want to explore.
How do you know it’s vegan?
Since we’re not able to try everything ourselves, we depend on food being self-identified as vegan. If it is listed on a menu or advertised as vegan, we assume it is unless it’s shown otherwise. If you know/find out that something we posted is not vegan, please let us know as we don’t want to spread misinformation.
Do you get paid to mention a business/product?
Nope! We work independently and pay for our own meals. On the off chance that we don’t, we’ll definitely say so.
Why Portland? Will you cover other cities?
We live in Portland and eat in Portland so it’s the food scene we’re most knowledgeable about (although our former home, the SF Bay Area, is a close second). We’d love to one day cover other cities, but we’re going to start here for now. We’re always interested in learning about what’s going on elsewhere though, so please feel free to share with us.
I have some Portland vegan food news/tips to share. How do I get it posted on the site?
We love getting information from the community! Please email us at tips at foodmtn.com.
Who are you?
We’re Yvonne & Jeremy, the folks behind the publishing company & online shop Little Otsu. We have collectively been vegan over 32 years and have lived in Portland since 2007.
