Our Interview at Portland Radio Project 99.1 Tasty Tuesday PDX

We had this feeling that the Döner Kebab will find friends here in Portland because that’s what good food does when it’s shared. Food unites people and cultures, creates new friendships while sharing memories and making new ones. And what is more rewarding than a smile on someone’s face ‘aaaaahhh, this was so good’ ~ ‘reminds me of my time in…’ ~ ‘remember when…?’ Last week we got invited to the Portland radio station Portland Radio Project, Tasty Tuesday with Steven Shomler and Ken Wilson to talk about Döner Kebab and Dönerländ. What an honor to be interviewed on the radio -live- only two weeks after opening PDX Dönerländ! We have been friends of the show for quite some time and whenever we missed a show, we listened to the recorded version on their blog. And thanks to social media, we followed Steven Shomler and his culinary adventures on Twitter and soon later he followed back. And now we were on the show too! Thanks again, Steven & Ken for having us, for liking our food and for sharing the story of Döner Kebab on your blog. Don’t miss to check out the Full Interview at PRP Tasty Tuesday with Steven Shomler and Ken Wilson. Here’s the recorded interview: Listen to Tasty Tuesday PDX on PRP 99.1FM Portland or online via their website. Ken and Steven are on air 7-10am every Tuesday.

Piedmont Station Food Carts

Piedmont Station Food Carts

Everybody in Portland loves a new pod, checking out what’s new, who’s opened and what’s going on in the neighborhood! Pods are micro-restaurants aka food carts and trucks gathering in a shared spot. They bring neighborhoods closer together, bring more businesses in and make a place flourish. Pods are places where people eat and meet. Piedmont Station Food Carts on Killingsworth and 7th, is a new pod in the King’s neighborhood just off of MLK across the post office. It used to be a gas station and it still has the old prices on the board with $1.14/gal! An Phan runs this pod and did an amazing job offering covered seating (where the pumps used to be), new pavement and all needed supplies like water, electricity and graywater disposal for the food carts. There are currently 8 carts open with more to come (and we’re here too!!). And best of all: Laurent & Tyler, the owners of Le Tap, are serving beer and wine! Here’s what’s on the pod (and we will update this list as soon as more carts open their windows): Le Tap (Beer, Wine & Cider) PDX Dönerländ (Turkish/German street food) Taco on Fire (Mexican Grill) The Original Halibut’s (Fish & Chips / Chowder) T’n’T Grillin (American/Burgers) Anna Lee’s Kitchen (Korean BBQ) Ice Mama (Shaved Ice) Check out Piedmont Station Food Carts on 625 NE Killingsworth, Portland! For more information about the pod visit Piedmont Station Food Carts on Facebook or if you are a cart owner looking to get on the pod, call An Phan at...
