Since you're not likely to find any, try seafood from Newport or McGrath's. I was in Corvallis last night and had some excellent bacon guacamole at del Alma. They had a lot of tapas and charcuterie that could pass for paleo.

I notice that paleo tends to focus mainly on red meat & seafood - does ground turkey fall into a healthy fat/protein category?

Of course turkey is paleo. Nothing more paleo than eating one of those huge turkey legs roasted over a hickory wood fire, if you ask me; meaty, fatty, sinewy, and packed with flavor. Ground turkey is somewhat boring in comparison but as a... (more)

Go to Lilly's tacos on Chapala. It's cheap and owned by a real person so you can get what you want. I usually get one taco and then pile on the toppings. Go here early in your trip because you will want to go back.
