Food Cart Radio – The Sugar Shop Food Cart on Tasty Tuesday 99.1 PM Portland Radio Project!

Each week on my radio show Tasty Tuesday 99.1 PM Portland Radio Project I have a culinary guest live and in studio. Often this guest is a Food Cart owner. Last week, I had Shannon Scully Co-Founder of the Sugar Shop Food Cart live and in studio.

Joining Shannon was Author Ellie Alexander! Ellie’s latest book in the Bakeshop Mysteries series is On Thin Icing. Each of the three books in this series have a handful of excellent recipes in the back!

The Sugar Shop — We Bake With Booze!

Shannon followed two of the recipes in the back of On Thin Icing and made both the Orange Cardamom Rolls and the Double Chocolate Cookies with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting! Shannon then went the extra mile and made special versions of each of those culinary treats!

I was able to enjoy Orange Cardamom Rolls with Grand Marnier  in both the filling and in the frosting!   I was also able to enjoy in the Double Chocolate Cookies with  Rumple Minze Peppermint Schnapps frosting. Sooo good!

This is the cool part — below is a link to the article and podcast that Ken Wilson, the Ultimate Food Cart Wingman, made from the December 29th, 2015 live in studio interview and that link has a link to download RECIPES for all four of the treats referenced above!

Pulehu Pizza Food Cart is Going Brick and Mortar!

Pulehu Pizza

Pulehu Pizza Food Cart is Going Brick and Mortar!

The Pulehu Pizza Food Cart is making the leap to brick and mortar! They will be opening in the restaurant space at the Lumberyard Bike Park located at 2700 NE 82nd Ave Portland Oregon 97220.

The Lumberyard   Pulehu Pizza at The Lumberyard

They hope to open in this space and begin their soft opening phase by Jan 16th, 2016 and they will be having a Grand Opening Celebration on February 20th, 2016 from Noon – 10 PM.

Pulehu Pizza Food Cart

Food Cart Dreams Come True!

Business Partners, Annebelle Eastling and Pierre Prevost started Pulehu Pizza in Maui in 2009. At that time, they ran a pop-up business that did not have permanent location.

In 2012 they moved to Portland, Oregon to open up the Pulehu Pizza Food Cart with the hope and dream that someday they would be able to make the leap to a brick and mortar restaurant.

Prior to 2012, Annebelle and Pierre visited Portland a number times and they had fallen in love with it! They loved the people, the weather, the food scene and the Timbers! Portland was the place for them to pursue their culinary dreams!

Their first cart opened in 2012 and it was, and still is, located at 432 SW 3rd Ave, Portland, Oregon. Current plans are to continue to operate this Food Cart.

In 2015, Annebelle and Pierre opened a second Food Cart in the former Burrasca Food Cart located at the Pod 28 Food Cart Pod at 28th and Ankeny. Burrasca went brick and mortar themselves this past spring. Annebelle and Pierre closed their Pod 28 Pulehu Pizza Food Cart a few weeks ago to be able to focus on getting their restaurant open.

Pulehu Pizza

Great Pizza! Great People! 

I love the pizza at Pulehu and I cannot wait to be able to visit their new brick and mortar location and enjoy more of it!!

I am also big fans of Annebelle and Pierre! They have a done great job of growing their brand and I love it when hard working culinary entrepreneurs have success. I look forward to attending the Feb 20th, 2016 Grand Opening Celebration of Pulehu Pizza at The Lumberyard!

The Apple Bacon Burger – The Burger Guild Food Cart November Burger of The Month!

The Burger Guild Food Cart Apple Bacon Burger

The Apple Bacon Burger – The Burger Guild Food Cart November Burger of The Month!

The Burger Guild’s burger of the month is the Apple Bacon Burger!

I know that November is almost over, however I devoured this amazing burger on Sunday November 22nd, and I just have to tell you about it! Thanksgiving is this Thursday. Load up on on turkey on Thursday and Friday and then Saturday, Sunday or Monday and get this outstanding burger while you can!

IMG_3886

The Apple Bacon Burger

This burger is made with a beef and Italian sausage smoked patty, bacon, green apple, honey mustard sauce and spinach.

I must confess, I  almost did not get this burger. I mean who the hell puts apples on a burger? Then I remembered two things — #1 I have had wonderful burgers with apples on them at  Rockin’ Robyn’s Sassy Burger Food Cart, and #2 I was at Mike Scheller’s Food Cart and the man knows how to make a damn fine burger!

The Burger Guild Food Cart       The Burger Guild Food Cart

I am SOOOO glad that I ordered the Apple Bacon Burger. First off, it come with bacon. Really good bacon. Second, the sweet sourness of the green apple pairs really well with the beef and Italian sausage smoked patty, and the honey mustard sauce brings is all together. I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked the honey mustard sauce! Lastly, the spinach made me feel good that I had some greens on my burger.

GO GET THIS BURGER! If you like burgers, you will love this one. The incredible aroma beef and Italian sausage smoked patty alone, will give you hunger pangs.

Pepe Caliente Food Cart Grand Opening – Saturday September 19th 6 PM – 9 PM!

Pepe Caliente Food Cart Portland

Pepe Caliente Food Cart Grand Opening – Sat Sep 19th 6 PM – 9 PM!

Pepe Caliente is a brand new Portland Food Cart and they are having their grand opening Celebration this Saturday evening at Culmination Brewing, Here are the details on both this new Food Cart and their grand opening!

What
Pepe Caliente is going to be one of Portland’s few mobile Food Carts. Retrolicious is one of the handful of Portland Food Carts that have successfully followed this model. Pepe Caliente will not have a Food Cart Pod that they call home. They will be at business parks for lunch during the week and they will do events and catering on the weekend.

Jarochos from the Pepe Caliente   Jarochos from the Pepe Caliente

Introducing Portland to Jarochos!

Pepe Caliente’s culinary dish is Jarochos. A JAROCHO (hu-rō-chō) is cochinita pibil wrapped in a corn tortilla, covered in broth, garnished with jicama sticks, pickled red onions, habaneros, and cilantro. This is a Portland take on a dish that the founder of Pepe Caliente grew up enjoying in Veracruz , Mexico.

Pepe Caliente Food Cart Portland     Culmination Brewing Portland Oregon

The Pepe Caliente Grand Opening!   Jarochos and Beer! 

As I mentioned, Pepe Caliente does not have a Food Cart Pod to call home as they are a mobile cart that is going to do events etc.. Hence, they needed a place to park their cart for the Grand Opening Celebration that they wanted to have for their friends, family and fans.

Carter B Owen,  Executive Chef at Culmination Brewing, and Tomas Sluiter, the Founder of Culmination Crewing , are both big fans of Portland Food Carts and they told Pepe Caliente that for one night only — this Saturday night September 19th from 6-9 PM they could park outside the brewery and have their Grand Opening Celebration there.

The adress for Culmination Brewing  is 2117 NE Oregon St, Portland Oregon 97232.

Being able to enjoy jarochos with some of Culmination’s beer sounds good to me!
