Last May, we participated in the inaugural TEDxPortland 6K Night Run and it was great fun. Led by TEDx and sponsored by OMSI, Rogue Ales, NIKE, Stumptown Coffee, KIND Bars and Red Bull, we had a blast running this 6k around the waterfront in downtown Portland.

Having spent so much time in India myself, and even learned some Indian cooking when I lived there, I had heard of most of these dishes but hadn’t actually tried them as they were all mostly “Indian street food.”
