Bollywood Theater PDX

It's only been a week since I visited Portland, OR and I'm still missing the city, its vibe, and the food. One of the places that I truly enjoyed eating was at Bollywood Theater PDX (<- check out the videos on their website!).  Just being at the restaurant itself gave me a little insight of what India is like just by looking at their decor. 
            
                             

 If you don't know much about Indian food (I'm still learning myself), a lot of the delicious, flavorful foods are street foods - foods that are sold at carts and stands:

Gobi Manchurian- Indo-Chinese fried cauliflower with lemon, curry leaves, and sweet and sour sauce













I cannot live without curry (true story).  Put me on a deserted island and I could just live off curry dishes every day!

Left: Pork Vindaloo- Portuguese influenced dish from Goa. Pork braised with red chile, garlic, and vinegar.
Center: Goan Style Shrimp- Shrimp with curry leaves, chile, coconut milk, and lime.  Served with saffron rice
Right: Chicken Curry- Thigh and leg with an aromatic and creamy curry.  Served with saffron rice

Last food pic is a Kati Roll (my first time having it!):

Kati Roll- Found throughout the streets stalls of Kolkata.  Kati rolls comes with your choice of chicken, beef, or paneer cheese.  They're also stuffed with egg, pickled onion, and green chutney rolled in a Paratha flatbread.




I love everything about this restaurant!  I plan to eat here every time I visit Portland ;)

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
