Cart Talk: PDX vs. ATX


Austin and Portland, sister cities in so many ways, are pitted against each other in this CultureMap Austin piece about how Texas trucks compare to Oregon's. In a vicious throw-down fight, CultureMap observes that both cities have nominally mobile, but practically immoble, trucks that pay a lot for the right to park, and fightin' words ahoy: "Austin's food trailers would perform well against some of their best tasting vittles." Also, a general Austinite perspective of the Portland cart scene: "The top three foods produced in carts in Portland? My guess is something Asian, waffles, and something vegan."
