Portland Monthly Magazine: 6 Great Summer Food Cart Sandwiches

Their namesake and most popular dish, the Smaaken is a waffle layered with Cascade Farms bacon, melty brie cheese, and slices of lightly cooked spiced apples. The star of the sandwich, however, is the waffle itself: made from organic heirloom wheat from Greenwillow Grains in Corvallis, the batter is left to rest for a full 24 hours, giving it a rich, malty flavor. At once crisp and fluffy and subtly sweet, these waffles are so delicious in their own right that we might even prefer to eat them plain.

Grab a bowl of Hapa PDX's meaty tonkotsu ramen, a savory Brie-and-bacon waffle sandwich from Smaaken, or a surprisingly righteous gluten free root beer doughnut at Back to Eden. Then kick back and soak in the scene: 22 food carts and a funky but stylish vibe. You can dine at a hidden counter, under a heated tent, or gathered around a fire pit on split-log benches made from Douglas fir trunks.
