A must-do here in Portland is the Food Carts. They are everywhere; every neighborhood, every street, everywhere. And, the food is fantastic and cheap. There are plenty of vegetarian ones, so those are the ones I ate at.
My first meal in Portland was at a food cart called Juniper. OMG! So delicious! (http://www.juniperpdx.com/)
If you can't find something, anything, to eat at these food carts, then, you just are too picky. There is something for everyone!
My second day was at a food cart called, Homegrown Smoker Vegan BBQ (homegrownsmoker.wordpress.com/) . It was vegan BBQ ribs and hushpuppies. I can't even describe the hushpuppies - sooooo good!!
I had a hard time choosing between the BBQ and this place (Native Bow), which was also vegan. BBQ won!
I also ate at a place called Native Foods, not a food cart, but it was SO delicious! (By the way, ALL this food isn't mine - some of the pics are of my friend's food! I'm not THAT big of a glutton!)
Vegan "chicken" sandwich - DELICIOUS!
Ok, this was my friend's meal. Vegan "bacon" double cheese "burger". It was HUGE!
