Portland has a really vibrant street food scene. I don’t remember this from previous trips there, but it had been a while and maybe I just wasn’t in the right part of town on those trips. But in my wanderings this trip I came across quite a few areas filled with these little stalls.
There was a wide variety of food types, and prices seemed pretty reasonable. Of course it’s all to go, and some places had a chair or two, but the prevailing assumption seems to be that you’ll be finding somewhere else to be eating whatever it is that you get. I finally decided on some Thai noodles, and then ended up back at my car to eat them. (Had to drop off the loot from Powell’s anyway.)
