Cancel this request! I dug through my desk and found the Thai restaurant that we loved last year

asian lunch south of airport

Last year I was recommended a Thai place for lunch -- it must have been from Chowhound-- and in getting out my Portland map, it was somewhere off NE Sandy Blvd., east of the Fremont district but west of 205. It was in a very non descript area but the food was very good.

Does that ring any bells for anyone?

If not, favorite lunch place in Fremont district?

Flying into PDX Thursday and looking for Thai or Vietnamese lunch place not too far from airport. After lunch we're heading to Lake Oswego so going that direction if possible. thoughts?

Where Does Trader Joe's Food Come From?

A trip to Trader Joe's saves me a bundle over what I pay at local grocery store. It's worth it for olives, teriyaki sauce, olive oil, dijon mustard, assorted nuts, baking flour and I'm not even talking about frozen products (which because I drive 2 hours to get there is almost impossible). FYI Trader Joe's organic low fat yogurt is manufactured by Stonyfield in NH. It's the only private label Stonyfield produces.

Pho Pasteur?

In Boston for the weekend and remember a posting a while back about Pho Pasteur being decent. Ate at Le's today for lunch and it was good (hey I'm from northern NH) and thought I'd take my other half who worked all day to their sister? restaurant Pho Pasteur...

Are they still related? I checked out PP's website and it says they're on Stuart St. in Boston... no listing in phone book except on Washington ST. I called them to find out if Stuart St. had moved but I don't know if the person I was talking with understood what I was asking - just said they were on Washington.

Help.. I want to enjoy dinner tonight...
As an alternative, is Montien Thai on Tremont still a good option?

Cote St. Luc/Queen Mary dining

Thanks for the info. I've looked at that Korean place and wondered if it was any good...

Didn't know Premiere Moisson opened up - that sounds good.

And the Portuguese grill sounds fantastic.

Cote St. Luc/Queen Mary dining

Heading to Montreal for the weekend to visit mom (age 80). We love good quality eats - lean to veggie but chicken and fish fine - Asian, Greek, French, Thai. Often head to Monkland and have found some mediocre places so need help here. We enjoy St. Viateur for brunch.. Monkland, Queen Mary or anywhere inbetween. Thanks

Good eats off 91 in Vermont

Yama Restaurant with Korean and Japanese in W. Lebanon, NH serves a great lunch. Definitely recommend lunch boxes!! (miso soup, chicken or salmon teriyaki, rice and salad for 7.95)
96 Main Street. It is about 5-6 minutes off of 91 - white River Jct. exit. closed Mondays. It is in a small complex behind HR Block. Do a mapquest search for specific directions.

If you are of the natural/organic persuasion - Brattleboro Food Co-op (exit 1 - go north on Route 5 and it's on your left) has good selection of to go prepared food as does Putney Co-op. (Immediately ahead of you when you get off at Putney exit) Putney also has seating area.
Exit 2 Brattleboro - turn west when you get off has a fancier style deli/take out place called French Bakery. no seating. (haven't been there in years so can't verify)

Good diner in Lyndonville also. Exit 23 - Diner is on Route 5. You may have to backtrack a mile or so to get back on 91.

If you haven't stopped at any of these places, you might go into Derby Line/Stanstead and see what you can find there. it's also the last place to get gas in the US at the Irving Station. (they sell sandwiches) And you can cross the border at the low key Derby Line customs station.
