Literally taking over Portland in recent years with delicious ethnic foods and hard-to-beat lunch prices, the food cart can be found in as many varieties and sizes as one can imagine, and in every corner o the city at that. These "pods" as they're called, span both sides of the Willamette River, which divides east and west Portland. For quantity and quality, head to the Alder Food Carts in downtown SW—a neighborhood of tall offices, students and shoppers. Serving one thing, and one thing only is Nong's Khao Man Gai. Both the name and the savory chicken served over rice is a mouthful, and an incredibly tasty one at that. Also worth trying are Tábor's Czech Republic-inspired sandwiches.
