Co-Founder, Brother, Foodie

Brian splits his time between Portland and Asia where he also runs Lost Plate in 4 Chinese cities. The popularity of our food tours in China has motivated him to bring our top-rated tours to Portland. He enjoys taking photos and talking to customers from all over the world while sharing local food and a pint!

Lost Plate goes all the way back to 2014 when Brian moved to China and struggled to find authentic, local food without the help of locals. A few months later, Brian and his wife were taking Western tourists around the city to eat, breaking down language barriers and showing people where real locals eat. We could not be more excited to bring our experience and success to our hometown of Portland, Oregon USA. We know how hard it can be to research the best food in the best atmosphere that represents what locals love…so we’ve done the work for you!
