One bit of advice I give all budding food cart owners is to focus on one item and do it extremely well. We see some of the most successful vendors in the scene doing just that. Filippe’s Food Shack is doing apple wood smoked chicken.
The cart where Philip Stanton spends his lunch hour formerly served Thai, but when he took it over, he painted it flat black with a chalkboard style name and kept it simple. Philip, also known as Filippe has a smoker running daily with applewood to make his savory chicken. One can get a small plate with once piece or a large with two. Each dish comes with sides including whipped yukon gold potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, or a mixed green salad. Smoked chicken done right keeps the juices in and infuses the skin with great bold flavors. The sauteed mushrooms were so good, I almost went back just for them. Every part of the meal was put together with care for quality and taste.
Filippe’s Food Shack smokes their chicken daily, but in the past has offered other dishes, so keep an eye on their chalkboard for daily specials. Drop on by, enjoy a home cooked style meal and let Filippe know Food Carts Portland sent ya.
