Portland Street Food


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.


Great sign – “Come by for a taste of your childhood. Unless your childhood sucked, then we’ll share a taste of ours.” – but I didn’t feel like a grilled cheese sandwich.

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.)

    Street food seems to be the “in thing” now… and i love the idea of variety and grabbing something on the go… but the problemis..where do you eat it? Most times itwould take me too long to get home…and I would not want to eat my food cold anyway…. lol
