The Story: There are many stories of vendors moving from cart to restaurant or cart to truck, but Nourishment has gone from farmers market to cart and even had a restaurant along the way.
If you’ve ever been to the Hollywood Farmers Market in the last decade, you’ve probably seen the long lines at Nourshiment. Owner and chef Ramona White had a food cart more than 10 years ago, moved to a restaurant, but the market is where they found their niche. Earlier this year though, a beautiful Airstream trailer popped up on NE Sandy around 46th. A bright paint job, cupolas on the top and a wide welcoming service window, it is hard to miss. I asked Daniel, my burrito maker about the cart – it had suffered from a fire that gutted it, so the rebuild (which is stunning) was all done by hand. Wonderful execution.
Since I don’t get to the Hollywood Farmers Market too often, I’m glad the cart is open during the week At Nourishment, they focus on locally sourced fresh ingredients for their breakfast burritos, chilaquiles or bowls. While the lamb chorizo piqued my interst, I decided on the Greencard, a burrito with cheesy-eggs, potatoes, black beans, tomatillo sauce, sour cream and collard greens. Not normally a breakfast burrito fan, this incarnation convinced me I need to revisit that genre. Every bite, juicy and a bit messy, but with the savory flavors from both the beans and the greens, I couldn’t put it down until there was none left. Fresh and well made.
Nourishment is at the Hollywood Farmers Market on the weekends and then the cart is open Tuesday-Friday from 7am-noon. They have meat, vegetarian and vegan options for the burritos and do chilaquiles and bowls as well. For you breakfast fans, you need to get over there and give it a whirl. Let them know Food Carts Portland sent ya.
All dishes can be burritos, chilaquiles or bowls and come with cheesy-eggs, potatoes, black beans, tomatillo sauce, and sour cream
