PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Portland has been named the Best Foodie City by in America by WalletHub for the second year in a row.

WalletHub described an authentic foodie as someone who “not only craves new and different flavors but also savor the exploratory experience of eating, learning and discovering food.” It’s safe to say Portland has plenty of authentic foodies.

The personal finance website released its latest study on Monday, in which they found that the Rose City is the best combination of affordability, diversity, accessibility and quality when it comes to what WalletHub calls “foodie friendliness.”

The study compared a range of data, including how accessible fine dining restaurants are, how many food festivals per capita and even how much groceries cost.

Portland placed first ahead of New York City and Miami. Vancouver, Washington was named No. 39 and Salem was ranked at No. 63 on the list of 182.
