Portland Food Carts

We are in love with the food carts of Portland, Oregon and with the 400+ carts scattered around the city there's something for every craving you may have. We took a few bites of crepes, fried pies (there's sweet and savory) and ordered french fries with every sauce you can imagine (we tried "poutine" but took a pass--sorry Canadians).

Our personal favorite (this trip) was Nong's Khao Man Gai--basically, chicken and rice--but so tasty the way the chicken is prepared along with the "secret" soybean sauce and delicious soup. The sweet little chef/owner-- Nong Poonsukwattana- whose smile warms you up-- has been written about in many local and national newspapers and magazines about her "one item menu" and her success.
