The Story:

The food cart pod at PSU continues to evolve. You can get amazing vegan BBQ and an assortment of Thai and Mexican and now, pulled pork sandwiches and bento boxes from Phat Cart.

Sandwiched between Krua Bangkok and Fernando’s Mundo Fiesta, Phat Cart offers up a menu of sandwiches and bento boxes featuring slow cooked or stewed pork, chicken, beef or a vegetarian dish with pan fried tofu. The Samurai Sandwich I enjoyed offered up slow cooked stewed pork with tomato, sauteed zucchini and Kewpie mayo, a famous Japanese mayo that gives the sandwich a unique twist. The sandwich was wonderful with some great flavors brought out with the stewed pork. It literally melted in my mouth.

    Best cart on the street. Everything I’ve tried there has exceeded my expectations ! Next on the list- veggie tofu. Can’t wait.

  2. A great food cart with some of the best stewed meat available. Rich and enticing this cart is a must eat.

  3. I had the vegetarian bento box and it was delicious – will definitely get it again. One thing that would make it better: an option of brown rice.

  4. Out of all the carts that I’ve eaten at while in Portland (which is growing into quite the respectable list!), this place vividly stands out and is among the very best in class! I’m not even sure where to start with you on this.

    For one, I’m far and wide a sucker for good Asian fusion. And by sucker I mean that I’d probably choose it over my first and second born. To heck with them! Second, the staff here is like super-uber-duber friendly (and who doesn’t love friendly people!?). Third would be the speedy and short amount of time it takes them to prep and hand over the delicious goods. GIVE IT TO ME MAGIC FOOD WIZARDS! Honestly, I’m shocked each time at how quickly they can put together such quality eats.

    Last but not least is the flavor… simply put, it’s FLIPPING AMAZING! The Mr. Miyagi (essentially a jacked up chicken club on the ‘roids) is so good it makes me want to put a ring on its finger, er bun, and buy it a house. Only then could I die happy and without regret! But in all seriousness, try this place. Like right now. You can thank me later. Kthxbye!
