Portland Restaurants and Food Carts

I work across the street from one of Portland's great food cart pods (near Portland State University), and until last week, I'd sampled only a few of them. Even though I tease my hubby about his unwillingness to try new things, I was stuck in a comfortable rut. I tended to go for my yummy chicken teriyaki and brown rice at Dosirak, or soup at the Portland Soup Company.

Last week I branched out and tried Turkish food. Today I decided to make my way through the pod and try each one. Then I decided to chronicle my food cart adventures on my blog. And here we are!
