    Fry Guy Location: SE 13th and Lexington in Sellwood Hours: Wednesday-Sunday, 12=6pm The Story: Fries. I haven’t head the term French Fries for years. In the 21st century, we call them fries! One of Portland’s most famous cart does fries and now they have competition. Fry Guy in Sellwood does fries, poutine and more. We all grew up on fries didn’t we? Heck, I worked at McDonald’s in the 80’s and got paid in fries. The only potato dish that may rival the ubiquitous fry is the tater tot, but we won’t go there today. Alex McGillivray, aka the Fry Guy, has…

    La Camel Location: SW 9th and Washington Hours: Monday-Saturday, 11am-4:30pm The Story: Ever eaten at a Moroccan restaurant? Sitting on pillows on the floor with friends and a huge spread of deliciousness. Now Portlanders can experience that from a food cart – La Camel. La Camel opened last year in a cart that had seen many vendors over the years. Karim Baziou grew up in Morocco working in the family catering business and coffee shop. He continued to call the culinary industry his home when he came to the U.S. with roles ranging from chef to manager to caterer. His memories of the…

    Chop Chop Portland Location: SW 10th and Washington Hours: Monday-Sunday, lunch and dinner The Story: Growing up in Portland, there use to be a number of great Chinese restaurants in Old Town/Chinatown. Sadly, many have moved on. With the growth of food carts in the last ten years, one would assume Chinese would be a golden ticket, yet we only have a few. Chop Chop is the latest bringing brilliant Chinese dishes to the Alder pod. Eating Chinese has always been an enigma for me. Having grown up on pre-packaged Chow Mein or visiting Chinese restaurants in the suburbs, it wasn’t until…

    Haan Ghin Location: SW Park and Harrison at PSU Park Blocks Hours: M-F, lunch The Story: Most every Portlander I speak with comment on the number of Thai eateries we have throughout the city. Yet I rarely hear about other cuisines from Southeast Asia and have been wanting to explore. Then I learned of Haan Ghin, a new Laotian cart at Portland State University and paid a visit. Historically, downtown Portland was divided by what we now refer to as the north and south park blocks. City founders designated the land as a division between commerce and housing and the industry that was…
  • Portland Food Carts Year in Review – 2014

    Takoyaki from Buki As the year comes to a close, we reflect back on 2014 and Portland’s food carts. The year was crazy with the threat of pods closing to numerous vendors opening brick and mortar establishments to a growth in truly mobile food trucks. Every year, I’m amazed at the delightful new cuisines being offered up from these rolling boxes parked throughout the city. Here’s my year in review: Numbers: Multnomah County reports there are approximately 829 mobile food units operating. That includes all of the food carts in pods throughout the city, food trucks and a…

    PORTLAND, OR (via: KPTV) - A local woman received a special thank you (and a free meal) from the owner of the popular KOi Fusion food carts after she returned an envelope of money he’d misplaced. Owner Bo Kwon showed up at Cathy Mayes’ home Monday with flowers and burritos in hand. Mayes found an envelope on that ground last month that had $700 in cash inside. She traced it back to Koi Fusion and returned the money to its owner. Mayes said she was always taught to do the right thing, and didn’t expect anything in return, other than a thank you. “It’s not mine and…

    PORTLAND, OR (via: KPTV) - A man was caught on surveillance video burglarizing the popular KOi Fusion food cart’s warehouse in Portland. The video shows the man spending about 45 minutes in the warehouse, rifling through employee backpacks, picking up a hammer and swinging it wildly over his head, going through the refrigerator, and then reaching into his coat, taking out a bottle and taking a drink.

    “It’s really an amazing feeling to know that you have built a group of people that are proud to go to battle with you everyday! I’m so blessed and honored to have built a family around my business! Every one of my team has sacrificed, cared and pushed KOI FUSION beyond what me and my parents ever have expected 4.5yrs ago. What makes me smile is that my staff has become close as family and rely on each other on and off the “court”. As KOi grows I know that a reflection or judge of my success is in each one of these individuals you see here. I will do my best to…
