Despite pining for East Coast/Midwestern eateries - the one realistic thing I would like a reversal on the ban of selling raw meats in restaurants. I love Lebanese food and Kibbeh Nayeh is one of my favorites but I can't buy it in the city because (I've been told by restaurant owners) it is against the law. Steak tartar is illegal, or in this case lamb tartar is illegal? I've eaten it all over the states but not here.

you need to visit one of the many lovely lebanese places in Portland, try Nicholas, Habibi...
Also try Barbur whole foods...

My observation is that HV is a new up and coming area. It looks lovely and I think it will be a huge boom area (from observation). Many lovely homes etc...But as it is new, there probably noot as many businesses. My guess is they will explode eventually. That area is sweet, near Mt Hood, has some nice things going for her. I like that it's near 205 also.

Google says there is a Dunkin Donuts in Oak Grove along McLoughlin. A Heavenly Donuts, and Winchell's further down closer to Gladstone, and on 82nd in Clackamas as place called Daily Donut.

The reason I mentioned DD is because I was in Baskin Robbins near where I live, and it made me remember DD. In the east coast, these 2 stores are usually run together.

I honestly feel that having DD's here would make this place that much nicer. So I am not necessarily complaining, simply thinking that portland is a great area and that is why I think about having a DD here!

Same with In-n-out.

Steak tartare isn't illegal in Portland restaurants. I mean it's rare, but French/European-style reastaurants like Beast, Carafe, and Paley's all have it on the menu. And the Gilt Club has elk tartare.

But as far as Kibbeh Nayeh...I don't know if it's just not on the menu of local Lebanese restaurants for some other reason, but it seems weird that only raw lamb would somehow be illegal.

Dunkin Donuts used have stores in Portland but they have not existed here in a long time. I don't know why they failed.

Thats too bad. I hope they try again, they have re-invented themselves lately (same as Subway has with breakfast, etc). They are cool now, that's why I liked them. I enjoyed their breakfast for lunch myself. Didn't go there much for donuts!

Hi Hose,
I lived on East coast for many years and I could walk in a DD and not feel tempted by anything. Even as a younger person... nada. Not into DD. Don't get it.

QUOTE=hose111;20029337]you guys don't understand the lure of DD. You would have to hang out on the east coast more...It is not only donuts there anymore, also they have wonderful breakfast lunch. And the colors are so inviting (the orange). There is something about dunking donuts that makes you happy.

I enjoyed my time at Sesame, but I still want DD[/quote]
