INTRODUCTION Welcome to the Northside of Portland! Those who live here know it to be a special haven of small-town comforts, close to the big city but without all of the big city inconveniences! Forget the parking nightmares, weird restaurants, “three-ingredient cocktails,” and break-the-bank boutiques filled with tiny clothes and shiny European foddle-de-rool! And most of all, forget the attitude! Northside Portlanders know they’re special, but we don’t wear it on our sleeves. Our inner calm, nurtured by round-theclock easy parking for reliable, mom-and-pop shops that have been around since our parents were kids, keeps us sane. Look at some of our oldest businesses, and see if you can think of anything like them downtown! Over in Mocks Crest we have the Lily-Saf Martinizing Launderette, owned and operated by the colorful Mr. Paul Giancamelli since 1966! Stop, park conveniently, and chat with Paul sometime about the equipment troubles he’s been having, all while enjoying one of the famous hard candies from the glass bowl on the counter! Got a hankering that only eating can cure? Visit Iannis-Kwik Automat in Cathedral Park for cold sandwiches, soda, and trail mix. Parking couldn’t be easier, change is given, and there’s never a line. Got a car full of tired kids, the old idea bank is running dry? Visit St Johns’ famous Volto-Calliope Children’s Coin-song Booths, where for a nickel apiece youngsters can stand behind the old green velvet curtain and listen to classic advertising jingles and catchy piano rolls! Most of us old-timers still duck into a booth once in a while for this little nostalgic treat. Shaded parking is just around the corner, and there’s a locking bathroom. Well, these are just teasers, but I’m sure by now your curiosity is piqued! Come and visit the Northside of Portland, where history, convenience, and value are all just a parking spot away!

EATS Portland restaurants may be the darlings of the national spotlight, but there is a hidden gem within the heart of this exciting city’s food community, and it is Mocks Crest. Tucked away on the road to St Johns, making no advertisement of itself, Mocks Crest is enjoying a quiet and thrilling revolution all its own, in an intimately-sized neighborhood that few see and fewer truly get to know. Pull off the road the next time you’re on your way to Sauvie Island or St. Helens, and get your boots dusty. Take a gamble on someplace new, and soon you’ll find yourself thinking, “Mocks Crest. Maybe I’ll keep this to myself.” Here are two of our most exciting places to dine...hopefully this teaser will show you the warmth of soul and hospitality that lies just off the beaten path. ERKUN’S NDEBIO KITCHEN! Mr. Erkun Keleni moved from the West Calou Islands to Mocks Crest in 1991, to be nearer to his wife. Though she quickly moved away, he remained after discovering that locals had fallen in love with his recipe for spicy ndebio, and opened ERKUN’S NDEBIO KITCHEN! in 1993. This little cart behind the Tienda Almocar, just a dozen blocks off Lombard, features the always-smiling Mr. Keleni whipping up his treats fresh for every customer, greeting old friends with the trademark line featured on his banner, “DO YOU LIKE IT SPICY MOCKS CREST!!!” Yes, Erkun, we do. Traditional Challenge Grill As a small child, Alan Yarbrough was inspired by the popular Food Network television program Iron Chef. Knowing early on that he not only wanted to cook, but for it to be a bigger challenge to him than most, he eventually launched a food cart with an Iron Chef theme: Alan Yarbrough’s Traditional Challenge Grill. You bring the theme ingredient, and Alan has up to one hour to make you a fivecourse meal, using only items from his pantry and the nearby Tienda Almocar. Alan’s dramatic costumes and flowing black wig make a visit to this showman-chef’s window a truly one-of-a-kind experience where you be the judge. Mocks Crest has a parking spot with your name on it...and a meal to warm your tired heart.

THE BEAST IS BACK! 20 The Mercury’s Northside Neighborhood Guide November 7, 2012

DRINKS If it’s good drinks and good times you’re lookin’ for, the Northside of Portland has got ya covered, baby. Whether it’s those big woody beers for the young guys, or bubbles for the ladies, you can find it all from Arbor Lodge to the tip of the St. Johns bridge. I’ve been drinkin’ in this neck of the woods since Johnson rode the brass tacks and Cubby Broccoli made the pictures, and I tell you there’s no barkeep straigher than a Northside Portland gal or fella to keep your martini cold or your doubles even. Whether you got important business or are just lookin’ to get gassed with the boys, there’s a waterin’ hole here where you can tie it on with a twist and forget about it. Come stand one up with me at Lurisio’s some Wednesday night, and I’ll tell you how it used to be. We’ll get the chicken francese, I’ll have my guy Danny keep the Rusty Nails comin’, and you’ll see some real Northside Portland class, kid. You’ll know how we did it in the day, and teach your punk friends what it’s like to get tight with the brand name in luxury nightlife, Vern Fiduccio.

All of our wide variety of beers are produced on location, from the light, refreshing Siskiyou Golden Ale to the deep, impenetrable Black Bear XX Stout to the extremely hoppy Yellow Wolf Imperial IPA. Food here is classic Northwest fare, ranging from traditional pub favorites like hand-dipped halibut and chips and hand-pressed burgers to a variety of sandwiches like the Steelhead gyros and homemade vegi-burger made with spent grain from the brewery. Most everything is made fresh daily, including our salads, soups and desserts.

SHOPS Welcome to St Johns! Once considered the wild and unpredictable pioneer sister of Portland proper, our quiet and proud little town has matured into an eclectic and continually reviving community of local businesses you just won’t find anywhere else. St Johns is proud to make use of its miraculous and naturally-occurring location on the way to the Sauvie Island pumpkin patch (fall) and the Sauvie Island No-fee Personal Watercraft Launch (summer), bringing city-weary travelers a taste of what they›re missing in all that hustle and bustle! From a men›s hat and breeches store that has been in continuous operation since people took “serums,” to restaurants that blend a careful mix of the tastes of the 50s, 70s, and mid-1980s, you’ll find that St Johns has it all! You can forget your cares for the day as you stroll our new downtown, checking to see if the fountain is on yet, or just using our handy ATM! (11am-3pm, M-Th.) And, bring the kids! There used to be a vegan gelato store!

SERVICES Kenton wants to earn your business! Known as the center of the Northside of Portland’s booming services sector, our local town leaders (Mr. Taverno and Garry) have made “clear and competitive investments” in our lineup of everday and specialtyneeds shops. Whether you’re looking for cool automotive supplies for your old car, hard-to-find reliable laser printer services, or just an easy place to park while enjoying some fast food and a magazine (Life is Good...In Kenton™), we have it all! Take a look at some of our unique services, and keep them in mind next time you’re shopping for a new place to take your business! Larry Garry’s Naturopathic Auto Shop Serving Kenton since 1979, Larry Garry’s has it all! No other auto shop in the city consistently stocks such alternative car care must-haves as: henbane root tamps for dissipated cylinder lines, Kilipilia’a petroblanch tablets for cold-start jitter-balks, Viking Mike’s vetiver-scented firewall ducting felt, and “Maiden of Calenture” gutta percha heater valve core converters. Jerry Taverno’s Fax and Laser Printer Repair Has the coronoa wire in your old HP3950 lost its youthful incandescence? Is your Canon520j a little “toner incontinent”? Did that darned kid run a magnet too close to the ionic capacitor housing in your Epson ProLite again? Jerry Taverno has been working with laser printer technology since his apprenticeship in Modena in the late 1970s, and is Portland’s #1 ASLPP certified technician. Stop by, size up the problem over a hard candy or fun cup of water, and get your unit working again in no time! That’s not all we have up in Kenton, believe me, but I don’t want to make our neighborhood sound too good to be true! Got a question? Need to locate a specific service? Call me any time after band, 4:30pm weekdays!
