And yes, I made the obvious pun.

This past weekend I attended the inaugural Portland Radler Festival, AKA “Portland’s Most Refreshing Beer Festival,” organized by StormBreaker Brewing. There was a healthy spread of breweries offering Radlers, a fun and laid back atmosphere, and a lot of love for the beverage under the big tent.  Continue reading “Recap: The Inaugural Portland Radler Festival Was Rad”

First Tastes: Sweet, Savory, Salad

Portland is full of delicious food, so here are some first impressions on the latest tasty things I’ve eaten recently in town.

Dahi Papri Chaat | Bollywood Theatre. I ate lunch there a while back and really enjoyed the meal, but the dish that has really stuck with me is their Dahi Papri Chaat. It starts with a base of housemade garbanzo bean flour crackers, then topped with small dark chickpeas, little cubes of potatoes, yogurt, cilantro, tamarind chutney, all dusted with chili powder and topped with sev, a kind of crunchy noodle made from chickpea flour paste. I had something like this at Dosa Hutt in Flushing a few years ago, and have been hoping to encounter a similar dish since. It’s quite saucy and very flavorful; a true flavor bomb. I love the contrasts of cooling yogurt and spicy chili powder, earthy chickpeas and tart chutney. I could eat this every day. bollywoodtheaterpdx.com, 2039 NE Alberta Street, Portland  Continue reading “First Tastes: Sweet, Savory, Salad”
