Hey, it's Bruce Murdock from the morning show!
On Saturday, April 27th something new will happen - and I think it will be an instant classic "must do" Portland event from that evening on. One venue, a collection of great Oregon wines to sample and a huge collection of Portland's famous food carts. A $35 ticket gets you in - the entertainment value of the year - Corks and Carts!
I'll let you wine fans talk among yourselves about the great Oregon wines represented - but when it comes to food carts, I'm in! I love KOI Fusion (get some) and they'll be there - but I wanted to sample some others.
PDX Sliders is one of the great trucks that'll be there! Proudly started in 2014 as a Food Cart in the Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood they continue to operate two mobile trucks as well as have private event space in 2 brick and mortar locations in Sellwood and SE Division. I hit their outdoor deck in my old Westmoreland - Sellwood stomping grounds at 16th and Bybee yesterday in the sun. Spectacular smells, dog-friendly patio...and the food! They name their sliders for Portland neighborhoods and you can get "slider size" or "full size" versions of all. I got two sliders to try em out.
This is the "Portland." Juicy beef with American cheese, and aioli on a brioche slider bun. Comes with raw onion but I said no - cause breath.
This beauty is the "Burlington" - smoked pork with BBQ sauce, mustard and aioli on a ciabatta slider bun. I could have eaten a bag-full. So good.
And these are.....well.…..spectacular.
HIT THIS to go to PDX Sliders website - which will make your mouth water out loud! HIT THIS to see a rundown of all the food carts we'll feature at our first annual CORKS and CARTS. Then HIT THIS to get tickets (which are going fast)
We'll see ya there on Saturday April 27th!
