My Favorite Dish Right Now In Portland Comes From A Food Cart

It’s summer in Portland. It’s hot. You want dinner, but nothing too heavy. I recommend going to have this incredible dish from Bibingka food cart. Bibingka is right next to my other favorite food cart in Portland, Gumba. Or it is right now, anyway. Sadly, this small little pod of food carts is going to have to move. Bibingka serves Filipino food, and this dish was so good, that I went back less than a week later to have it again…

…er-Portland, Oregon A photo posted by Yakuza Lounge PDX (@yakuzapdx) on Jan 2, 2015 at 2:50pm PST I’ve had a lot of great burgers in my life, but, for me, nothing tops the umami flavor of the burger at Yakuza Lounge in Portland, Oregon.

Something’s Fishy At Pescau Restaurant In San Miguel, Mexico

…you are asking me to cook? And second of all, I didn’t go out to dinner so that I could cook. No, I’m paying you to cook for me. Don’t expect me to make my own guacamole.
