Beloved Texas-style barbecue cart Matt’s is expanding south. Less than a week after opening his new Thai barbecue restaurant on North Williams, pitmaster Matt Vicedomini is moving forward on his promised barbecue taco truck, the Oregonian reports. Matt’s BBQ has developed an obsessive following for Vicedomini’s tender brisket and juicy spiced sausages, which earned the Prost Marketplace cart a spot on the Eater 38.
Matt’s BBQ Tacos will serve crowds all-day in the original Fried Egg I’m in Love location, now that the breakfast sandwich cart has found a permanent home down the street. The cart will start the day with a set of breakfast tacos, followed by barbecue tacos similar to the ones he’s serving at the original cart in North Portland. Beyond the tortilla, Matt’s BBQ Tacos will also serve smoked meat sandwiches and plates like pork belly burnt ends with refried beans and creme fraiche.
The cart is expected to open in March. Stay tuned for more details.
