PDX is great but for whatever reason lacks real bagels and indian. See the link below which recurs monthly Looking for something like Ess-a-bagel in NYC. I like to bring them back for support staff at work. Nothing goes over better than East Coast bagels.
We are weak in Indian too. Looking for suggestions near Dupont circle but am happy to metro elsewhere. Upscale, downscale, northern, southern, appreciate any suggestions.
How strange to live somewhere where you have to drive out of the country (to Vancouver, Canada) for decent bagels and are at the mercy of invitations from Indian co-workers for decent (home cooked) Indian food. On the other hand at least we have the right approach to snow. Snow should stay on mountains where it belongs IMHO. If you want snow in PDX region you can drive to it even in summer but it rarely snows in the city. We got two inches two years ago with some ice and it shut down Portland for a week.
