You’ve Never Experienced Anything Like Portland’s Epic Food Truck Pod
You don’t have to wander far in Portland before you run into food trucks. Part of our dining culture, food trucks are a wonderful place to have a quick meal without the fuss of a sit-down restaurant, but still with amazing flavors and selections. One of the best food cart pods is right in the heart of downtown and serves up some truly memorable meals in Portland.
The largest collection of food carts downtown, the Alder Food Cart Pod, is one of the city's best.
Located between SW Alder and Washington Streets from SW 9th and 10th Avenues, the delicious pod caters to the lunchtime crowds.
Most carts in the pod have extended lunch time hours during the week to cater to the many businesses in the area.
While there is some limited sidewalk seating available throughout the pod, Director Park is nearby, making it a great place to enjoy a meal from here if you are not going back to the office.
Featuring a wide mix of cuisines, the busy food cart pod has something for everyone.
It's a great place to grab a quick bite with friends where you can mix and match a couple different items to create an amazing meal.
For vegetarian food, The Whole Bowl has you covered.
In business for over 12 years, The Whole Bowl serves up delicious vegetarian and vegan food that will make you swoon.
Nong's Khao Man Gai is the go-to spot for delicious Thai chicken.
Serving just the one namesake dish, Nong's has grown from just one cart into two and a standalone restaurant all to showcase this amazing chicken. Thai Herb Food Cart, Wing Star Thai BBQ, and Sawasdee Thai Food are all there serving up other Thai favorites.
Number One Bento serves up scrumptious Korean bento meals, while Samurai Bento serves Japanese bento...
Or try an outstanding bowl of pho from Huong’s Vietnamese Food or Pho Sam.
Locos Locos Burritos is a haven for delicious burritos, Eurodish serves up mouthwatering Polish food, and Korean Twist is the place for Korean-Mexican fusion food.
Basically, whatever you are in the mood for, you can find here. Bring your appetite and head down to this central location for the food cart meal of a lifetime.
