this place is an awesome little sandwich spot. the staff is very friendly and welcoming, and their sandwiches are delicious. i got the Korean spicy bbq sandwich, and kept going back during my trip to Portland. If you're in the Irvington/Sullivan's Gulch area, try to swing by here and try it out

You know those sandwiches that are so simple, yet so delicious they make your taste buds sing? That's what Taste Tickler has to offer. Their subs aren't the fanciest sandwich in town, but they don't need to be. They have great ingredients on delicious bread. I had a BLT and it was simple and delicious. If you're looking for a...

The little sandwich shop you’ve probably driven by a thousand times. Well it’s time you stopped. Located on NE 14th just off NE Broadway, this tiny hole in the wall has been around forever. Everyone who comes here adds it to their favorites list. Skip subway, come here instead. Really great sandwiches. You will say yum with every bite. Only... More

Stopped in for sandwiches and chips. Turkey and cucumber and BLT. Made fresh, different sizes and add ons. Also have rice plates. We took ours to go, but they have seating. Fast and reasonable and tasty. Fresh ingredients. Good stop.

This place was recommended to us. So we decided to give it a try. At first glance you might not give it a try, do yourself a favor and try it. We had five people in our group, we all had something different, and everyone agreed it was one of the best sandwiches we had ever had. The bread was... More

I've been going here for about 2 months ever since moving to the area, and I'm in love with their sandwiches! The interior has an old-school kind of vibe to it (small, unpretentious, bare-bones), but don't let that fool you from the food! My favorite is the BBQ Chicken sandwich. Their Bento Box meal is a great deal too.

While unassuming this little place has provided me with plenty of good food for my money. Andy introduced me to their bento boxes the first time I walked in.

If you blink you may miss this restaurant because it is located in such an unassuming place. But once you manage to find it, whoa, get a load of those subsandwiches. Talk about flavor galore. I tried the Famous Tickler and the Chicken Teriyaki subs and both were outstanding. The sandwiches come in three sizes, 7", 10" and 14". The... More

I have lived within a mile of this place for the last 25 years. There is nothing sexy about the outside appearance. I kind-a was afraid to enter for fear it was a dive. About four years ago my then high school son convinced me to give it a try. Lets just say there are two different menus on two... More

This hidden gem is well worth looking for. The look of the place is unexceptional but the food and the service is good. I like the chicken rice bowls.
