Big Ass Sandwiches
This popular Portland Food Cart has received quite a bit of much deserved press, including being featured on the Travel Channel on Adam Richman’s Best Sandwich in America where they won the title of best Sandwich in the Northwest.

Fries that will blow you mind! My favorite – the PB&J Fries.
Deep fried hand pies. Each flavor I have had, has been terrific.
Wood-fired pizza. Really, really good wood-fired pizza! My current favorite is the Fennel Sausage.
Two words – Bulgogi Beef. Nuff said.
The Row Food Cart Pod AKA The Super Pod!
The Row is also being referred to as the Super Pod, especially on Twitter. The reason for this is the amazing lineup of Food Carts that are going to be at this Food Cart Pod. Kind of like when the Guardians of the Galaxy appeared in the Avengers. It was a line up of heroes so epic you just had to get the issue.
What is amusing to me is that on Twitter the hashtag #SuperPod applies to this new Food Cart Pod here in Portland and to a very large pod of Dolphins or Whales. It cracks me up to think about people searching Twitter for info on large pods of dolphins who run into tweets about Big Ass Sandwiches.
