Streetside dining is the food story of the year and Portland, Oregon is at the forefront of the food cart movement that is spreading across the country. The quality and range of food rival what is available in some of the best restaurants in the city. You can find all the usual fare plus upscale offerings like duck confit on a crusty baguette ($5.50…I swear to god!!).
Multnomah County has more than 450 carts that are clustered throughout the area. Opening a restaurant can be a costly and risky business, and Portland has embraced these carts by offering affordable licences and easy access to real estate. And many of these little restaurants on wheels can move around the city for special events and tweet their daily locations to faithful followers.
