We actually have ethnic food
Sadly, it seems like if you want anything outside eats in the European tradition, it’s relatively hard to get it in Portland (except for like, dim sum apparently). Seattle meanwhile has everything from hole-in-the-wall Indian restaurants (not to mention one of the best in the country), to high-end Vietnamese spots, as well as a Korean fried chicken bar, and Cambodian soup joints. Seattle has food from all over the world, and even better...
You can sit down while you eat
Thankfully, not every one of Seattle’s best eateries is a food cart/truck, meaning they have dining rooms with these things called tables, and chairs. We know! It’s amazing.
