Food Cart Lunch Mashup

dieselboi

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.

  1. Why oh why did you have to plant this in my brain this morning (check tri met schedule) (checking opening hours for bro-dog and side cart)….

    Curse you Food Carts of Portland!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

  2. Hah, damnit, I was going to do that with a youcanhazcheeseburger, but haven’t had time to make it down there yet.

    Great. This is going to cost hours at the gym. MMMmmmmm.

  4. Are you sure it would *slowly* kill you? Seems close to an edible cyanide capsule, potentially. . .

    Seems like it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to get a burrito from any local cart deep-fried. Call it the Bombrrito. . .

  5. I’ve eaten many different things together from the various carts at the Hawthorne and 12th pod – french fries from Potato Champion with fried tofu from the BBQ cart and a burrito from the Mexican cart. Top it all off with a pie from Whiffies and you’re set.

  6. I always have the grand idea of “cart hopping” when friends or family visit town, but I’m always (over-)full after the first one.

  7. *titters*

  8. Evil, Evil, Wicked Genius.

  9. Goddamn.
