For the longest time it seems like Portland has had its fair share of food carts. However, about 4 or 5 years ago the number of carts seemed to explode overnight. It was like every empty lot in town was turned into a food cart pod. And thank goodness! Because there is some amazing food being served up in these carts and they offer tremendous value.

There are hundreds of food carts in Portland and the variety of cuisine is equally impressive. The cuisine ranges from your standard fare like burgers, pizza, and mexican food to more hard to find cuisine like Himalayan food.
