Few weeks back we were in Portland, Oregon. I am not a fussy person when it comes to food but in the morning  I love eating  South Indian  breakfast like idli, dosa, uppma etc. That morning was one such day, I was craving to eat a dosa. We were on our way to a restaurant in Beaverton which was 45 minutes away, but I wanted to go there as I could not settle eating anything else.

We reached AbhiRuchi greeted by the friendly owner. After the long drive finally when I picked the menu to look at the variety of dosa's they offered, I thought it was worth it. When he came to our table he said they offered only Lunch Buffet. Immediately my smile vanished, I tried hiding my disappointment but failed. He noticed that and was kind enough to ask me what I wished to eat. I tried being modest and refused. But when he insisted I happily said ' MASALA DOSA and Chai'.

After few minutes, he came out with the small dosa that I ordered ;)
 It was very crisp, non- oily and delicious. So next time you visit Portland you know where to eat your morning breakfast.
