Portland’s flourishing food cart scene is now drawing the attention of the LA Times.
Katherine Tulich writes, in Portland’s food carts a winning stop:
It’s like walking into someone’s backyard barbecue. There are groups of people standing and chatting, while others are sitting and eating at makeshift picnic tables. Haphazardly strung lights give the scene a festive atmosphere. But this isn’t someone’s private party; it’s a gathering of food carts in Portland.

Recently opened Mississippi Marketplace gets a mentions, along with Nuevo Mexico, and new German pub Prost, which though not a food cart, permits patrons to enjoy food cart entrees with their imported beers.
