A walking tour of Portland's world class food cart scene led by Brett Burmeister, Managing Editor of FoodCartsPortland. The tour begins at one of the city's largest lots and goes from there. You'll learn the history of the carts, owner's unique stories, why it works in Portland and be able to try some of the tasty vittles they serve at 4 different vendors. More food than you expect. A fun time to explore Portland's street food scene.

Brett is incredibly knowledgeable and gives a wonderful tour. He provides interesting details and the tour is worth every penny. There are ample samples and is sensitive to food intolerances and Vegan. I highly recommend. Go hungry!!!

Inexpensive and really good food. I tried sushi from Japanese truck, chicken Kafta Saj from moon light Mediterranean truck and the food at both places was really good.

If you can't find something to eat amongst the 50+ food trucks, you must be a fussy eater. We ate at the grilled cheese sandwich truck, g/c with avocado, pepper and red onion - delicious! Sandwiches come with chips and pickle and are under $10....More

This was a really cool way to experience the feel of Portland. We had so many options so it was hard to choose what to eat. We went with the grilled cheese truck and it was Amazing!!!

In a sea of generalized Middle Eastern food choices, if you dine for just one time at Food Carts, locate and enjoy the Mawj Iraqi Cuisini...if you dine and seek a change...dine at Mawj Iraqi Cuisini.

You can just stop by and buy food from any cart you want like buying lunch. Tour gives you history, about green recycle containers and about each of food carts you visit. Tried things I would not have bought on my own.

Yes. We get small items from 4 different vendors which equates to more than a full meal.
