One of Portland’s defining food carts, Tabor is up for sale, according to a Facebook post by owners Karel and Monika Vitek. The Viteks write, “Both terrified and excited by the unknown, we've decided to sell our beloved food cart. We are hoping that whomever comes after us will keep our customers happy by upholding the Tabor tradition of authentic Czech food. We are both more than willing to assist with guidance and recipes.”

For those seeking one last taste of the Original Schnitzelwich made by their hands, the Viteks will helm the Tabor food cart through the end of June, in the downtown pod at 433 SW Stark St. The Schnitzelwich features breaded and pan-fried pork loin with horseradish, paprika spread, sauteed onion, and lettuce on a Grand Central Bakery Ciabatta roll, and in 2013, Bon Appetit wrote, "There may be no better sandwich on the planet.”

Tabor was established in 2004, so it’s been a long run. The Viteks plan to refocus their time on their seven-year-old daughter and Monika’s new hot sauce company, Stinging Kombucha. Here’s the full announcement:
