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!
