Portland’s contemporary Chinese community is centered in the SE 82nd Avenue and Division Street neighborhood, and Portland’s best Chinese food is also found here at Wong’s King (8733 SE Division St., 503/788-8883, 10:30 a.m.–11 p.m. Sun.–Thurs., 10:30 a.m.–midnight Fri.–Sat., $8–21). The chef has won prestigious cooking awards in China, and the huge dining room is always thronged with Chinese families, but the staff is very solicitous to non-Chinese diners who may be confounded by the extensive menu. Dim sum is terrific.
