New Downtown Pod and Cart Changes


Some tidbits of news for you eaters out there:

SW 6th and Columbia is host to a new food cart pod. Located across from The Oregonian and Nel Centro, the lot has five vendors including the following: Rescue Bagels, E-San Thai, Aybla Grill and Love Belizean. E-San Thai moved their cart there from the Broadway location, but will be back at Broadway by US Bank with a new cart according to my sources.

    Does anyone know what happened to the Salvadoran pupusas cart that was at the PSU pod until about a week ago? I was so sad when it vanished and was hoping maybe it was going to be part of this pod but it just seems to be gone. We miss our pupusas!

  7. Jonte made a really good po boy. I hope she re-opens somewhere soon. I’ll be checking the site for news.
