Portland’s World-Famous Food Carts

Is there any place in the world with better street food than Portland? Not in our opinion. Set up in parking lots, on sidewalks and in parks, Portland’s more than 600 food carts offer everything from espresso, Brazilian moqueca, craft beer, Asian fusion and gluten-free raspberry bars to paper-bag pizza.

Many cities in the U.S. limit food carts or outlaw them completely. Portland’s embrace of street food makes it more akin to some of Europe’s greatest cities where snacks, lunches or even quick dinners are purchased from a street vendor.
