Portland’s Food Cart Phenomenon

About a month ago we took a quick trip to Portland to check out the food cart scene there that is just off the hook! We had a glimpse of it in November last year when I helped an Uncle move south–we were just there overnight. It was raining so hard at the time we couldn’t stop for any photos of the amazing numbers of food carts all over the place — even in winter! Unfortunately we are on the GAPS diet so we weren’t able to eat everything we saw, we had a buddy with us who did, so we ate vicariously through him.

We did manage to get some home cooked BBQ ribs–they were so delicious! Smoky and large portions of slow cooked ribs. The sauce seemed to have some kind of fruit base, perhaps cherry or blackberry–anyway it was a real treat.
