We moved to Portland at the beginning of July and have been busy exploring the local food options. I posted a few weeks ago about good restaurants for kids in Portland (a three year old and a one year old) and we have already tried a number of those options. Pretty much everything seems to be in downtown Portland though and I am wondering if there are any good places to eat in more residential areas of Portland. We live in the Rosemont area and the kids are in daycare near the airport. In our area we have tried Siano's and Espo's Trattoria. What else might be worth trying in the area? Is there anything in South Portland we should try? The area around the mall seems to be a chain heaven which I know would be fine for kids but would like to avoid on a regular basis.

Any type of food is good (would love to find good Indian and Chinese) but vegetarian friendly would be great! Thanks!

ETA: We have also tried the Great Lost Bear - beer list was great, food was only soso but that could be what we ordered.
