#59073 Portland Sandwiches

Posted by zeke on 09 August 2007 - 12:17 PM in Restaurants in Portland

If you are willing to make a trek, and for this you should be, Beaverton Sub Station in "old town" Beaverton is bar-none the best sub shop in the Metro area. Go during the lunch rush and you will wait in a line out the door and then have barely enough standing room to breath once youve ordered. Run by the same guy with the same Chicago Cubs hat on for as long as ive been alive. The Best.

#54326 Looking for lunch places that are a good value.

Taste Tickler on 15th and NE Broadway. By the looks of the rusted and worn sign, not to mention the name "Taste Tickler," one might be a little wary, as I was as myself. But after snickering, then realizing that Milos was closed, we noticed a steady stream of people filing in and out. We checked it out, and now Im there at least once a week, usually two or three. Large, delicious homemade subs. Try the BBQ chicken or the spicy chicken. They also have teriyaki, but its not the worlds greatest. The folks who run the place are super sweet and the subs, and the price, are excellent. Theres something to say for a hidden sub shop thats been around for 30 some odd years with a Subway and Quiznos just blocks away.

#32001 Mayuri Indian

Posted by zeke on 30 December 2006 - 03:42 PM in Restaurants in Portland

Has anyone tried, or reviewed Mayuri Indian in Beaverton? The location is odd, a converted Skippers in Fred Meyers parking lot, and it maintains that feel. When we first started going, the owner was extremely rude and unfriendly, but the second that spicy, perfect Indian touched my tongue, I forgot all about the rude beginnings. Well that is until I polished off mine and my girlfriend's water and he was nowhere to be found. I am pleased to report however that the man must have discovered Lithium, or weed or something, because he has done a complete 180 and is quite pleasant now. I ate at Chennai Masala last night, and as it was quite good, it doesn't touch Mayuri. They have a excellent lunch buffet that all but abandons the 5 predictable dishes found in every Indian buffet, opting instead to feature dishes such as flaming shrimp curry, okra dishes, and some that I have never seen. The price is a bit higher than most, especially on weekends, but they do serve a fresh, hot dosa to everyone at the table, which is a nice personal touch to the generally impersonal buffet experience. The fact that we are most often the only non-indian face in the restaurant says good things to me. Anyone else have thoughts?
