My husband and I were out playing around in Happy Valley, visiting the big Neighborhood yard sales (which wasn’t so big after all!). Since the sales were sparse, we decided to stop for a bite at the Happy Valley station.
A great lay out! The carts are all arranged in a circle around a main building. Inside the building are tables and benches as well as a coffee cart and beer taps (30 Taps). There is an awning that stretches from the building to the carts so people are under cover while ordering and eating – which turned out to be lucky for us. The rain started – and I mean rain!! Like the bottom fell out of the clouds!
But what about the food? There were several that looked good – The Urban Avocado had a chicken, tortilla and avocado soup that looked good. Bardo’s grill had some good burger choices. And Kickin’ Chicken Wings – a cart full of wings – and around and around we went with choices all over the place.
Well, we ordered from the pizza cart – a meat lovers pizza. It the best thing I can say without being really negative is, I don’t recommend this cart.
We then moved over to a Lebanese cuisine cart – Yaba Yabaa. OK – now we’re talking!
I had a falafal sandwich – packed with savory little patties of falafel, and hummus, tahini, tomatoes, lettuce – incredible!!
My husband had the lamb gyro. He doesn’t like the tahini so they left that off. Lamb, hummus, lettuce, onions….yummmmmm
We shared some hummus (made right there at the cart from scratch) with some pieces of flat bread.
We ate a little (and brought some home for later) and decided to give one more cart a try.
We stopped at the Crepe cart – I don’t remember the exact name and it must be new because it’s not on the website – but they had sweet and savory options. We got a whole wheat crepe stuffed with gorgonzola cheese, sliced, fresh pears and walnuts, served warm. It was delicious!!!
So next time your in the Happy Valley area (just east of Clackamas Town Center), stop in for a bite! You won’t be sorry!
