Village Patisserie

Location: SE 11th and Tacoma in Sellwood
Hours: Mon,Wed, Fri, Sat, 9am-7pm; Tues, Thurs – 9am-3pm

The Story: I delight in a great sandwich. In Sellwood, Village Patisserie offers up both breakfast and lunch sandwiches all day from their food cart.

Sellwood now has 2 food cart pods with Piknik Park on SW Tacoma sporting eight vendors including a beer and wine cart. Village Patisserie has been their from the start offering up breakfast and lunch sandwiches along with salads, soups and desserts. Their ginger snap cookie is the bomb, but I digress. After skipping breakfast, I needed something substantial, so opted for The Sellwood, Village Patisserie’s big boy sammy. Turkey, bacon, melted cheddar cheese, mayo, arugula, tomato, and avocado with a drizzle of special sauce is served on a ciabatta bun. Not normally a fan of turkey on sandwiches, yet with the bacon, mayo and avocado, I devoured it. The ciabatta is an unsung hero for a sandwich of this type. It held together unlike some other bread choices. Overall, a great sandwich with all the right flavors.

Papa Lee’s Kitchen

Papa Lee’s Kitchen

Location: SE 11th and Tacoma at Piknik
Hours: Tues-Sun, 11-7

Papa Lee’s Kitchen is one of those carts that will surprise you. While the menu offers a number of fish taco options like ahi or shrimp, it also offers up a double smoked bratwurst sandwich. Normally, vendors focus on one type of cuisine, but Papa Lee takes everything further. The Jaeger Schnitzel Sandwich is a perfect example – a breaded pork loin topped with house made mushroom gravy, jack cheese, veggies and served on a ciabatta roll. Served with a side Caesar salad, this is a hungry man’s meal. Juicy, sweet, savory and more. Papa Lee rocked it.

Mahi Taco in Portland

Location: NE 7th and Killingsworth at Piedmont Station
Hours: Mon-Wed, 12-3; Fri-Sun, 12-8:30pm

The Story: Piedmont Station continues to impress with their selection of street food vendors. With the addition of Mahi Taco, Portland can now enjoy Hawaiian style fish tacos from a food cart.

Mahi Taco plates up Hawaiian comfort food with a nod to Baja with grilled fish tacos and a few Hawaiian favorites. Upon arrival, the ubiquitous crossed surfboard logo sold me. A grilled flour tortilla is the base with cabbage, pico de gallo, lime sauce and Colby cheese as toppings. Mahi Taco offers grilled Mahi, chicken, kalua pork or fried avocado. With a nod to Hawaii, I picked the plate lunch with two Mahi tacos, a side of cilantro lime rice and mac salad. For $8, a generous plate of food. The tacos didn’t disappoint with charitable pieces of grilled Mahi superbly enveloped with cabbage, pico and sauce, I feasted. I’m excited to return one day to devour the kalua pork sliders.

Pastrami Zombie Food Truck

Location: 5427 NE 42nd and Killingsworth
Hours: Mon-Sat, 11-7, Sunday, 11-4

The Story: To execute an iconic sandwich in this town, you need attitude. Pastrami Zombie crafts one of the best pastrami sandwiches in Portland and they do it in a food truck.

Pastrami Zombie was born in Ashland by Melissa McMillan who garnered national attention for her restaurant Sammish. Opened in 2016, the food truck found a home at NE 42nd and Killingsworth in the lot next to Pollo Norte restaurant. Melissa, a die hard Chicago sports fan, wears the colors proudly and will engage on the subject with anyone listening. I had the joy of watching the Cubs win a World Series game with Melissa and it was exciting to see her passion. That passion is shown in the sandwiches she creates.

Pastrami Sandwich from Pastrami Zombie Food Truck

Pastrami Zombie, by namesake alone, knows their beef. The pastrami is Montreal style with beef brined for a few days, smoked with oak, then thick cut. The sandwich – two slices of Grand Central rye with thick cut pastrami, Swiss, slaw, dressing and for mine, mustard – is a beast and delight. Melissa crushed it. Each bite, a mess of beef, slaw, dressing dripping down your chin. A sandwich you’ll dream about returning for.

Pastrami Zombie is legit. The menu isn’t only pastrami. The Zombie also dishes up tuna, a burger and grilled cheese along with daily specials. Enjoy a beer from Pollo Norte while you dive in. Let them know Food Carts Portland sent ya.
