Portland's reputation as a quirky, food-centric city is well known, and it’s undeniable that a large part of its culinary identity stems from food carts. Carts themselves are well-suited to this particular moment in dining, a format built for takeaway and social distancing between chefs and diners. Covering a wide swath of cuisines across the city, this map pays homage to the beloved Portland food scene on wheels, featuring the hottest food carts and trucks. For some of the hottest new food carts, check out the Eater PDX heatmap.

Note: Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.

3530 SW Multnomah Blvd
Portland, OR 97219
(503) 833-2940
Visit Website

Bamboo sushi veteran Yoshi Ikeda opened this sushi cart in the Multnomah Village French Quarter pod in 2019 and has been serving high-caliber fish ever since. Fun, innovative rolls like the lime green roll with sesame-crusted spinach, cucumber, roasted pepper, avocado, and microgreens are only improved with the cart’s ginger miso. Rotating nigiri and occasional hand rolls showcase super fresh seafood Ikeda is sourcing. The cart is open for phone orders, and doesn’t accept walk-up orders; the pod offers seating indoors and out.

2. Bing Mi

1845 NW 23rd Pl
Portland, OR 97210
(971) 930-2968
Visit Website

Bing Mi in Slabtown specializes in Northern Chinese-style savory crepes called jianbing. Fermented black bean paste and spicy chili sauce come slathered on an eggy crepe filled with green onions, cilantro, pickled vegetables, and a fried wonton cracker, combining bright, umami-rich flavor with both chew and crunch. Options include loading up the jianbing with bacon, spam, or even roast duck. The cart is open for walk-up orders with limited outdoor seating at the pod.

3. Farmer and The Beast

Copy Link
1845 NW 23rd Pl
Portland, OR 97210
(971) 319-0656
Visit Website

This Northwest Portland food cart shows off some of the region’s finest seasonal produce: On any given visit, depending on the time of year, Oregon strawberries may appear, red to the center, in a salad with cucumbers and spring lettuces; spring peas and grapefruit may come tossed with a cashew crunch; fall chicories and apples may end up in a salad covered with cheddar shavings and the cart’s herb-heavy ranch. Then again, those seeking a serious smash burger will find those here, too, year-round. The cart is open for walk-up orders and delivery.

4. Matt's BBQ

Copy Link
4233 N Mississippi Ave
Portland, OR 97217
(503) 504-0870
Visit Website

Prost Marketplace, home to some of the city’s finest food carts, welcomed Matt’s BBQ after it was booted from its original location. With locations in Portland and Beaverton — not to mention a taco-themed spinoff —  Matt’s BBQ has become a local legend. Customers order a la carte meats and sides online, as well as sandwiches piled with chopped brisket or North Carolina-style pulled pork, before picking up platters of meat at the cart. Matt’s is known for its tender brisket, peppery spare ribs, and house-made jalapeno-cheddar sausage, but the under-the-radar hit on the menu is its butter-dipped smoked turkey. One thing’s for certain: It’s sacrilege to miss a side of the queso mac and cheese. The cart is open for online orders for takeout and pod-side dining, as well as delivery.

5. Kabba’s Kitchen

Copy Link
4631 N Albina Ave
Portland, OR 97217
(503) 438-6770
Visit Website

Senegalese and Gambian cart Kabba’s Kitchen sits in a nondescript lot just a few blocks from the flashier Prost Marketplace pod, but its lively-and-bright chicken yassa, crispy fataya (think of them as Senegalese fried empanadas) filled with intricately spiced beef, and creamy mafe yapp with hunks of carrots and potatoes blanketed in orange-hued peanut sauce may draw its neighbor’s customers down Albina. The shop’s bissap, cold and burgundy with hibiscus, is a worthy pairing for any dish on the menu. Kabba’s offers limited outdoor seating, but this is more of a to-go deal.

6. Stretch the Noodle

Copy Link
223-269 SW Washington St
Portland, OR 97204

Anyone who visits this downtown Portland food cart will likely spot chef Xuemei Simard quite literally stretching, slapping, and pulling noodles for bowls of killer beef soup or stir fries, fragrant with ma la or five spice. The dumplings, each packing a full shrimp with its tail poking out, are no slouch either. Stretch the Noodle is open for walk-up orders.

7. Erica's Soul Food

Copy Link
120 NE Russell St
Portland, OR 97212
(503) 922-5519
Visit Website

Erica’s Soul Food has become a breakout hit in recent years, thanks to the cart’s combination of knockout chicken wings and updates on soul food classics. Erica’s is a place where diners can find things as wild as pumpkin spice wings, or well-executed standbys like creamy mac and cheese. The cart’s smothered chicken, however, is a particular favorite. Visit Erica’s at her new location, parked next to Lottie & Zula’s on NE Russell.

8. Kee's #Loaded Kitchen

Copy Link
5020 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Portland, OR 97212
(503) 516-2078
Visit Website

Internet sensation Kiauna Nelson built her food cart dreams through self-taught culinary training and a business degree. Now, she serves massive piles of chicken and mac and cheese half the week at her MLK food cart. Kiuana’s (or Kee’s) specials can be found through her social media posts, but any day customers can walk up for sweet-salty fried chicken, crackling catfish, and saucy mac and cheese. Go early to line up; the food sells out sooner than posted hours may suggest. Kee’s is open for walk-up orders.

9. Matta

Copy Link
807 NE Couch St
Portland, OR 97232
(971) 258-2849
Visit Website

This Vietnamese-American spot serves comforting classics like thit kho, braised pork belly and soft boiled egg in a broth-y blend caramel, coconut, and chilis, and da lat, fried chicken marinated in nuoc cham. That menu is balanced with Việt Kiều dishes straight from owner Richard Le’s brain, including breakfast sandwiches on pandan rolls and iconic fast food dishes made with Vietnamese sauces and ingredients. Le regularly switches things up, but if the green pandan doughnut is on the menu, order it. Matta is open for walk-up orders, parked outside Concourse Coffee; the move is to stop by for brunch on the weekends, sitting at the picnic tables outside both businesses.

10. Baon Kainan

Copy Link
Large Films Building in Portland, OR, 807 NE Couch St, Portland
OR 97232, USA

This Couch Street Filipino cart has rapidly grown a fierce following, with dishes like jackfruit-and-mushroom sisig, Filipino spaghetti drenched in a banana ketchup tomato sauce, and fries smothered in beef-based kare kare. However, it’s hard to leave the cart without an order of Baon Kainan’s exceptional chicken adobo, juicy legs tinted with a smoked tamari-vinegar sauce. Baon Kainan shares a pod with Matta, with limited onsite seating.

11. Jojo Food Truck

3582 SE Powell Blvd
Portland, OR 97202
(971) 331-4284
Visit Website

When they’re not posting absurdist content on Instagram or giving away meals in response to the pandemic, Justin Hintze and his crew at Jojo are slinging some of the most sought after fried chicken sandwiches in town. The pepper-relish-topped spicy chicken sandwich is joined by a cheese, ranch, and cole slaw chicken melt on buttered, toasted shokupan. Keeping an eye on the specials via social media is also a strong play, and cold beverages from the nearby John’s Marketplace window allow for beer pairings. Jojo is open for walk-up orders and delivery.

You’ll never know what you’ll get at Ruthie’s on any given visit — some days, an order might involve thick slices of coppa in a tangy apple yogurt, or a corn salad topped with popcorn-like puffed sorghum, or pile of creamy, comforting funeral potatoes. The spontaneity keeps things interesting, and the main security blanket stays on the menu at all times: Sweet, house-made rolls with Ayers Creek jam, glistening and hazelnut brown on top. Ruthie’s is located behind Someday on Division.

13. Sorbu Paninoteca

Copy Link
5011-B NE 42nd Ave
Portland, OR 97218
(971) 895-6369
Visit Website

The main draw of this Cully cart is its cinque e cinque, or “5 & 5”: a layer of torta di ceci, an Italian chickpea flatbread, is paired with jammy eggplant on house-baked bread (those who eat dairy should add burrata). But the full menu is stacked year-round, changing dishes as produce from Portland farms begin to ripen. The Revel Meat Co. porchetta, which gets a slather of both salsa verde and anchovy mayo, is another star, often on the menu; it’s best to round things out with a seasonal salad and one of the cart’s stellar desserts. Sorbu offers a limited number of seats outside the cart.

14. Viking Soul Food

Portland, OR 97215

For more than 10 years, Megan Walhood and Jeremy Daniels have been churning out Norwegian lefse, potato flatbread, out of their adorable Airstream trailer on SE Belmont. The lefse are reliable comfort food for Portlanders, filled with combinations like meatballs with gravy or smoked salmon, dill, greens, and creme fraiche; any lefse pairs well with seafood chowder and lingonberry iced tea. Customers can order for pick-up or delivery online.

These soul-satisfying Korean barbecue boxes are now a fundamental part of Portland’s food scene, and KJG’s owner, Han Ly Hwang, is the longest reigning king of the Portland food cart world. The cart’s take on the classic bibimbap includes expertly marinated meats, japchae potato noodles, rice, kimchi, and a fried egg. The result is a sweet, spicy, and savory combination of flavors that are balanced and comforting. Those not in the mood for bibimbap should go for the cart’s “KJG hot dog,” if it’s on the menu: an Olympia Provisions hot dog topped with kimchi mayo, pickled mango, and spicy daikon. Kim Jong Grillin is open for walk-up orders and delivery.

16. Poppyseed

Hinterland Bar & Food Carts, 2216 SE 50th Ave
Portland, OR 97215
(503) 489-7449
Visit Website

Recently relocated to the brand-new Hinterland food cart pod, Poppyseed is another one of those Portland carts making fun, off-the-cuff food that’s hard to classify. Visitors may end up eating luscious stewed beans brightened with a mustard green salad, or house-made nettle pasta in a creamy chicken-mushroom sauce, or a gorgeous meyer lemon pudding cake topped with a dollop of chantilly. Any of the above are well-complemented by the cocktails coming out of Hinterland’s bar. The pod offers indoor and outdoor seating.

17. Tierra Del Sol Cuisine and Catering

7238 SE Foster Rd #1
Portland, OR 97206
(503) 975-4805
Visit Website

Located inside the always-delightful Portland Mercado, Tierra del Sol focuses on Oaxacan classics. Arguably the most popular order is the Oaxacan tlayuda, a serving-plate-sized grilled corn tortilla, mounted with a host of toppings, such as chicharron, avocado, Oaxacan cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, and more. A single meaty tlayuda is enough food for two. Tierra Del Sol is open for walk-up orders and online ordering.

18. Mira's East African & Mediterranean Cuisine

Copy Link
8220 NE Davis St
Portland, OR 97220

Somali restaurants are not abundant in Portland, and Samira Mohamed knows that — it’s part of what inspired her to open her own cart, which is churning out deftly spiced Somali stews and sauces. Here, flaky sabaayad serves as a shovel for bariis maraq or saucy suqaar, paired well with crunchy sambusas. The hulking mandi lamb, served on a bed of golden rice, is a well-seasoned dream for meat lovers. Mira’s is located within the Yard at Montavilla, which offers seating.

19. Birrieria La Plaza - Birria de Res | Mexican Food Truck & Taqueria

Copy Link
600 SE 146th Ave
Portland, OR 97233

The greater Portland area has a number of exceptional birria carts, but Birrieria La Plaza reigns supreme: Here, customers dunk cheesy tacos into consome swirling with the heat of toasted spices and charred peppers, glistening with a slick of chile oil. Owner Oracio Hernandez’s mother is the mastermind behind the recipe, which she keeps under lock and key; mystery or not, the shop’s quesabirria, mulitas, and vampiros are some of the city’s finest. Birrieria La Plaza is open for walk-up orders.
