Ever wonder what would happen when you take an item from one food cart and let another food cart “mash it up!” Well, my good friend Justin (@Nerdliness on Twitter) decided today was the day he would take a traditional meal and make it crazy delicious.
Justin visited the brofamous Bro-Dogs and on SW 5th and Stark and picked up a double dog which is two Sabretts on a bagel roll. Doesn’t it look tasty? I see he chose to add cheese to the dogs for added measure.
If the above just wasn’t enough, a short walk down 5th took Justin to SideCart, where you can get anything edible deep fried for about $3. And that is what he did:
When I saw this mashup on Flickr, my heart skipped a beat. I want it so bad, but I also know it may slowly kill me. Justin had a few comments for those of you who want to indulge:
1. Get a plate, knife, and fork. It’s even messier than you think.
2. Get some condiments on the side. Was a bit dry (despite all the grease that was pouring out).
3. GET EXTRA NAPKINS. Think you have enough? Grab more.
4. Shave before eating.
I love the imagination that went into this. I have heard others who have taken chocolate cake and a Voodoo donut to SideCart but another food cart meal? The possibilities are endless. Maybe a Whiffies pie, Parkers Waffle sandwich, or a Schnitzelwich deep fried. The list goes on.
This adventure makes me wonder. What other food cart mashups are there? Do you mixed it up, getting a couple of items from different carts to round out a meal? If so, tell me more.
Thanks to Justin for the great photos and the story and to @Ahockley for giving Justin the idea in the first place. Check out Bro-Dogs and SideCart on SW 5th and Stark. Tell them Food Carts Portland sent ya.
