Another favorite place is where a dear cousin took me for lunch one chilly day in Portland, Oregon.  Right somewhere in the middle of downtown Portland, similar to a CBD (central business district), are  sidewalks lined with food carts with cuisines ranging from Thai, Fijian, Hawaiian, Ethiopian, Korean, Spanish, Mexican, Cuban…gee…name every nationality and it’s aptly represented via these carts.

United Nations food carts all around

It was such a surprisingly cold noon time that visiting all food carts was not a favorable choice unless one wanted to end up frozen.  Best bet was to scrutinize 1-2 sidewalks only.  Good thing, we happily found Asian food we liked which we thought could also help with the cold weather.

Comfort food for the cold. One of the best meals had in Oregon. There were other food carts to be "discovered" but very little time and tolerance for the weather. This is a must do next visit.

Grab take-out food containers and walk to the nearby park and dine in true al-fresco style.  Marvel at the beauty of nature’s blooms and be amused with the number of doves frolicking for attention.  And as a fitting end, cheerfully give left-overs to the homeless plying the streets.  A truly fulfilling meal. ♥
