As recently as a decade ago, food carts were thought of as cheap, unpleasantly quirky, unhealthy, and flavorless alternatives to restaurants. However, as the economy turned south and individuals became more conscious of healthy eating, food carts began to follow suit, offering fine cuisine at rock bottom prices. In an era where fifty percent of all restaurants fail, food carts—with their lower overhead, mobility, and improved food quality—have found a way to thrive, and nowhere is this more evident than right here in Portland, Oregon.
Wolf and Bear’s, with locations on North Mississippi and Southeast 28th, is one of the finest carts in the Portland Metropolitan area. While the food here is somewhat exotic, it is completely free of both Bear and Wolf meats. In fact, Wolf (TannaTenHoopenDolinsky) and Bear (Jeremy Garb) serve completely vegetarian (and sometimes vegan), Middle Eastern inspired cuisine.A meal here will fill you with culture and scrumptiousness.
