What do you do in Portland when you have a day with nothing to do?  Find a great place to eat!  There are food carts all over the city!  We checked out Carts on Foster….

They also have the Pod Bar – although the selection is small, the ciders and beers are delicious!


They have a great covered patio are in the pod bar that you can bring your food into while you enjoy a cold one with your meal.20140621_124106

    That looks like a great place to eat! I always worry about the safety of foods in those carts. When I was younger, I would grab a quick lunch at wonderful little cart that served all sorts of food. It always parked near the high school where I worked and a lot of the kids ate there also. We called it the “roach coach”! Hahaha. Some day when I come up to Oregon I will try out some of the food carts there in Portland. Thanks!

      Vickie – Portland has numerous pods and all of them are regulated by the health department. If it’s a roach coach, it gets shut down! I’m thinking I’ll make a list of the pods on my next post!

      Thanks for stopping by!
