About This Tour:
Join us in a flavor odyssey of the food cart scene in Portland.
In one word? Yes. In two words? Hell yes. Of the 700 food carts in Portland, we’ve narrowed it down to the top 1% for the city’s ultimate food cart experience. Beer, desserts, and international fare are accompanied by quirky neighborhood stories and larger-than-life personalities of the amazing chefs who run these carts.
Truly a frontier foodie destination, you’ll get a real feel of the next big thing in flavor where each stop is somehow better than the last. Top off the afternoon nursing the strain in your Thanksgiving-pants with a sampling of craft beer on a massive patio, debating which bite was best.

- Eat Bavarian, Lebanese, Slavic, and Burmese delights while meeting the chefs on the former grounds of Oregon’s Hospital for the Insane. Mentally prepare yourself for this.
