Retrolicious Has Landed!

Some of you will notice that Retrolicious once again has a home! That’s right as of Saturday May 4th, Retrolicious is bringing their vagabond days to an end and they will be calling the Alberta 23 Food Cart Pod home.

If you are a fan of this GR8 Portland Food Cart, come to this party and welcome them to their new home!

If you not eaten at Retrolicious yet, do so! You will not regret it. Retrolicious is one the best Food Carts in Portland.

 Four GR8 Food Carts – Four GR8 Specials

Each of the four Food Carts at Alberta 23 are offering a special during our Cinco de Mayo Party.

Cheese Plate PDX 

The Cheese Plate PDX will be offering 2 specials!

#1 Gazpacho. Gazpacho is a cool Spanish style soup. The Gazpacho that the Cheese Plate PDX will offering on Sunday will have Mexican flavors in honor of Cinco de Mayo.

#2 Vegetarian Tacos. I love to eat meat. The food at the Cheese Plate PDX is so good that I do not even realize that I am eating a vegetarian dish. Whether you are a vegetarian or not, I am certain that these tacos will be simply amazing.

Retrolicious

Retrolicious will be offering the Especial de Cinco.

Green Chile Pork – succulent pork slowly braised in a blend of poblano, serrano and jalapeño chiles, garlic, a hint of cumin, cinnamon and oregano.

This special can be served up two ways: as a burro enchilada style or as a plate topped with a fried egg. Ayy Papi!

Fiji Indian Curry Food Cart

Fiji Indian Curry will be tantalizing us with two specials!

#1 Lamb Curry PlateLamb, Potatoes and  Curry served with Dal, Rice and thier signature Fijian Chutney. (I love that chutney and it loves me!)

#2 a Red Kidney Bean Curry. Red Kidney Beans, Potatoes and Curry served with Dal and Rice. This is a Vegan dish.

Captured by Porches 

Radlar Mass Muddled with Fresh Berries and Finished with Orange San Pellegrino

One of the Beers that captured by Porches is pouring right now at Alberta 23 is the Radlar Mass and they are finishing a pour of Radlar Mass with about an inch of Orange San Pellegrino. I had one of these last weekend and it is perfect for a warm day!

From from Noon – 4:00 PM (or while supplies last) you will be able to have that beverage  above, muddled with the freshest berries that Tom with Captured By Porches can find on his way in to the Cart on Sunday. Oh my, is that going to good!

Tom (Pictured above) will be our “Tap Jockey”on Sunday. Please be prepared to provide Tom with your ID and lots of tips.
