The Story:

Chinese food is such an ideal meal. There are numerous vegetarian, seafood, meat, and poultry options, each packing pleasing flavors at an affordable price. While we may have recently lost one great Chinese food cart in downtown Portland, another has opened a few blocks away – Beijing House.

Run and her husband opened Beijing House at the beginning of February. Fueled by their love for cooking, this friendly duo strives for consistent, top-notch service. Almost any choice can be made as mild or as spicy as the customer prefers. At Beijing House, you can also request brown rice for no extra charge. All menu items are $8 or less.

Seeking a palate-awakening experience on an overcast day, my eyes darted to the Kung Pao Chicken. Pieces of diced chicken are blended with numerous spices, peanuts, and dried red chiles. I requested the dish extra spicy with two scoops of brown rice. The couple sprang into action, cooking my meal to order. As I received my meal, the spicy essence of chiles aroused my senses, exactly what I wanted. The moist chicken had noticeable heat, yet I could still appreciate the other wonderful flavors. The texture contrasts from the peanuts enhanced the experience.

  1. I had general tso’s chicken w/chicken fried rice a few weeks ago. The chicken was delicious, and the fried rice was moist and excellent (I’m used to dry and unflavored fried rice from the Portland area). And the portions are HUGE.

    If you have a sudden urge for Chinese, you can get your fix here.

  2. I have tried Beijing house and it’s absolutely delicious! The rice was as mentioned in previous comment, perfectly moist and of good-quality. I had sesame chicken and my friend fried squid. Both dishes are delicious. The flavor is more on the salty side, I like that but if you like eating thing unsalted, you might find it a little bit salty. Having eaten tons and tons of Chinese food, in and outside US, I still rated the food here very high, especially considering that they’re food truck!
