● Ziba’s Pitas 503-473-9372; http://www.zibaspitas.com/. M-F 10:30-3:30. Authentic Bosnian food prepared by a pleasant woman include meat burek (meat-stuffed pita) and tikvenica (zucchini-stuffed pita) as well as cufte (meatballs) with either a delicious creamy white or a red sauce. Best is a combination plate that lets you try several items.
● Spella Caffè Next door, this cart dispenses rich, mellow, well-priced espresso.
