Tidbit – New Food Cart Pod on SE Division


Just a few weeks ago, some were writing the eulogy for Portland’s three decade old street food scene. News had broke that three popular pods on the east side would close by summer’s end along with a pod in downtown at the end of June. Well, the street food scene continues to evolve and change and news this week about a new pod has brought new opportunities for displaced vendors. Tidbit Food Farm and Nursery will open in mid August on SE 28th and Division, right in the heart of the ever growing restaurant row that has occurred in that neighborhood. The lot will boast an impressive array of vendors including Pyro Pizza, Fishbox, Brazil House, Namu, Aybla Grill, Tandoor’s Saffron Kitchen, Sushi PDX, Timber’s Doghouse and the Scout Beer Garden. Beyond food carts, the lot will have a nursery and farm stand provided by Thicket. Food Cart spots are still available – email tidbitfood@gmail.com for details.

Street food in SE just got a shot in the arm. The soon to be displaced vendors now have a place to go while still taking advantage of the 2014 summer. Tidbit will be one of the larger lots on the east side and will become a destination spot for many. We’ll keep track of the developments and let you know about an opening date when we learn it. Portland’s street food scene is alive and thriving.

    I visited this pod today and what a treat. About half of the carts were open with a lot more getting there. There are sunny and shady seating areas and very friendly and helpful people eager to introduce you to their food. We ate at the ramen place (sorry didn’t see a name) and it was great, ramen with pork belly in a delicate broth and curry with divinely-spiced fried chicken. Despite the construction in the area, we found ready parking and from the seating area you are blocked from the busy street. It really feels like an oasis.
