A Cinco de Mayo Gathering

A new hispanic mercado/food carts venue in SE Portland along Foster Rd. drew a nice gathering on a chilly, threatening evening. Live music highlighted Mexican, Central American and South American sounds. And, several young children were decked out in traditional garb and danced to an appreciative audience. A simple, pleasant evening at the new Portland Mercado.

Portland’s Food Carts

Having been born and raised in Portland, Oregon (somewhat of a rarity to find these days), I have seen the evolution of Portland in several directions…some so-so, some good. One of the finer developments in the city has been the pronounced blossoming of food at many levels..sophisticated eateries abound and my focus here, food carts. Forgive me if I leave out the obligatory, orgasmic mention of VooDoo Donuts…seriously, get over it.

Last night, my better half and I explored SE Portland down along SE Division and came upon the Tidbit Food Cart block at SE 28th Pl. It was alive and bustling on a Sunday night. A city block, once vacant, has been cleared and a circling of the food cart wagons has resulted in a pleasant arrangement, typical of Portland Food Cart corrals. 

The offerings are typical (Thai, Mexican, Central American, Scandinavian, Pizza, Beer, Sweets) but the flavors are always unique and to be savored from cart to cart as each creative maestro grills away for waiting patrons. We have visited quite a few of these food cart venues and always find the people watching, energy/vibe, pace to be very pleasing. Often there is live music.

If you are ever in Portland for an extended stay, try out one of the 500 some food carts nestled on these city lots.
