I'm Going to Eat You Up - Portland Foodcarts

Oh Portland, you are quite the town.
We’ve had some pretty delicious times together.
I can’t claim to have eaten at all of your adorable little food carts, but I have grown a little plump from a few of your bests.



SW 10th & Alder
It was my first, and it was love.
Whoever invented the bulgogi taco is a genius.


BBQ Fusion
SW 10th & Alder
Sometimes a girl doesn’t want to eat like a delicate flower,
she wants to bite into something big and messy


Perierra Crêperie
SE 12th & Hawthorne

They may have mixed up my order and given me a different crepe than I had ordered,
but I think the boy with all the tattoos was looking out for me.
Not only are their crepes delicious, but their milkshakes are just as imaginative.


Potato Champion
SE 12th & Hawthorne
I am not really a poutine lady. I might speak French with a dirty accent, and lived in la belle province, but I’ve never really caught on to the whole poutine racket … and ok, maybe Potato Champion’s gravy was a little on the sweet side, but I am definitely a fries girl & ketchup girl. These boys know how to make fries, and they know how to make sauces. Rosemary truffle ketchup, or tarragon anchovy mayo anyone?
 


Food Cart Favorites: The Sugar Cube from Portland Monthly on Vimeo.

Sugar Cube
Mississippi & Skidamore
"Boozy yellow cake, infused with copious amounts of brandy, a hint of orange zest and then dipped in sexy bittersweet chocolate ganache. This little gem comes with a coke straw and a Colombian sugar bump."
She describes it better than I could.

Then again ...
sometimes it's nice to just stay home and have someone make you something delicious.
