I'm behind in my posting and have two food carts to review, both Thai/Asian.
A few weeks ago Mike joined me for lunch and we tried out Krua Bangkok. According to 1859oregonmagazine.com, Krua Bangkok is operated by the Ratanavetin family, originally from Nonthaburi, Thailand. The family aims to "keep all dishes as traditional as possible" and purchases ingredients from local Asian food stores. Krua Bangkok is unique in the pod because it's open until 6:30 p.m. (for dinner!). Mike and I visited Krua Bangkok on a lovely summer day.

My verdict: I'll be back, but I will steer way clear of anything with tuna in it!
Rice and Noodle
Rice and Noodle gets an award for one of the most boring names around...like the "Burgers" cart I refused to try. It's very simple and straightforward. Rice. And Noodles. :)

My verdict: Not the best Asian cart in the pod--and certainly not very focused on branding, but I enjoyed my meal. I might try it again!
