The Story: Soups and sandwiches are the mainstay of an American lunch. Think grilled cheese with tomato soup. We have some soup vendors and others with sandwiches and now Bread and Broth bring them together.
Kenny worked in a cafe in San Diego for a few years and then at a cart here in town until venturing out on his own. Those experiences taught him the keys to simple, yet tasty dishes. Take the roast beef sandwich with horseradish mayo, greens and tomato. The roll from Vietnamese baker An Xuyen along with a salty and sweet-hot horseradish sauce take a simple sandwich and create a memorable experience. He also does it with chimichurri aioli. Soups include a roasted tomato basil scratch made along with seasonal options like pozole verde with chicken or curry lentil with coconut. If’ you can’t choose, Kenny will ply you with samples. He’s even working on his own Tonkotsu style Ramen featuring the 12 hour creamy broth. Ramen weekends he says.
Very impressed with everything I tasted and ate at Bread and Broth. While new vendors arrive on the scene weekly, there are some that stand out because they have focused on the basics. Kenny has his basics down and you should check it out. Let him know Food Carts Portland sent ya.
