Garden State & Native Bowl PDX

We did a lot of food cart grubbing in Portland. Mostly at the Mississippi Avenue cluster. I thought I would post about the highlights rather than inundate you.

The best of the weekend for me was that Chickpea Sandwich up there from the Garden State stand. Such a perfect sandwich! Sunset magazine published the recipe back in 2009. I'm definitely going to give it a try. The Don got their Meatball Hero and said it was amazing too. In fact, I believe his exact words were "That was the best meatball sub I've ever had" Wowza! Portland Monthly food critic Karen Brooks did a video on the Portland food cart scene as well as a video of a day in the life of Kevin Sandri, owner of Garden State. Fun videos... I want to go back to Portland right now and eat!

On our last day in town we went back to Mississippi for our final meal in town and I got the Mississippi Bowl from the Native Bowl stand. BBQ soy, vegan ranch, house coleslaw, scallions and jasmine rice. It was a really interesting mix of flavors.
