News from The Carts


Some tidbits for ya:

Some cart moves to update you about. With Green Castle closing, we have some updates on the carts there:

  • Burger Guild is moving to A la Carts on SE 50th and Ivon
  • Gaufre Gourmet has moved to SW 9th and Alder
  • Viking Soul Food is moving to Good Food Here at SE 43rd and Belmont
  • We Be Weiners has moved to SW 5th and Harrison into the Portland State parking garage.


Winter is coming, and with the cooler weather, some carts decide to shutter during those months instead of fighting through the slow times. The following carts have closed for winter:

  • Yogio and The Dog House PDX on NE Alberta
  • Scoop Organic Ice Cream at North Station
  • Picnic on SW 9th and Washington
  • Cool Harry’s Frozen Yogurt on SW 10th and Alder
  • The Sugar Cube at Good Food Here


Bo Kwon of Koi Fusion opened his brick and mortar kiosk down in Bridgeport Village this month. With a menu featuring his signature tacos, sliders and now rice bowls, movie patrons and shoppers now have something new to try. More information at


Lastly, we learned today that Nuevo Mexico has closed. Jesse Sandoval opened the cart back in June of 2009 at the corner of SW 3rd and Stark. He created a following there that moved with him when he relocated to Mississippi Marketplace the next year. It has been a good run for the cart and I’m sure they will be missed. We wish Jesse and his staff good luck on their next adventures.


  1. Starting this week, Pizza Depokos will be selling Scoop’s handmade ice cream by the pint and half pint. Initial flavors we’re carrying: Salted Caramel, Salted Caramel Stracciatella, Triple-Threat Ginger, Sweet Potato Pie, and Maple-Walnut!

  2. Any news were PDX sushi and baileys are moving to?

  3. Hello Rick!
    Thank you for answering all my questions last time I visited you at Curtis Trailer. I really wanted to have met you before building my food cart!
    Assuming that you meant Sushi PDX….I’m relocating to Good Food Here on Belmont. I will re-open some time next week after working on my food cart for several days.

    I talked with Dan and Marylou of Bailey’s yesterday and they were still undecided as to where they are moving to. They will most likely decide in the next few days.
    As to other food carts, I believe Diamond Thai, La Tinga Tango, and GF Chef are all moving to Cartlandia pod on 82nd.
    Pho Herb and Banh Mi Sandwiches, and Big C’s BBQ are still undecided and no info so far on Hot Boxx and Lebanese Scrooge.
