This Small Oregon Town Is One Of The Most Diverse Culinary Destinations In The U.S.

Oregon’s foodie landscape is ever changing and evolving, with Portland leading the state in terms of culinary clout. But don’t think PDX is the *only* culinary superstar in the state; there are numerous smaller towns and cities that are putting Oregon on the map, too. McMinnville, Oregon is one such town that’s recently emerged as a culinary destination in the PNW. From authentic Italian, Mexican, and Asian restaurants to bakeries, food trucks, and farm-to-table eateries, McMinnville, Oregon, is a mecca for global and regional cuisine.
