Mama Chow’s Kitchen Food Cart – A Brief Glimpse at This Brand New Portland Food Cart!
Jeff Chow opened Mama Chow’s on Sunday February 16th, 2014!
Mama Chow’s Kitchen is a Brand new Food Cart located at the corner of SW 2nd and Stark near the All Jarred Up Dessert Food Cart. In fact, Jeff’s second customer ever was Teri from All Jarred Up. She stopped by Jeff’s first day in business to cheer him on!
I had a blast hanging out with Jeff on the 16th. I showed up before he was actually ready to open and I was able to visit with him and once he was open I bought three of his dishes.
I have to say – I love his food! I had the lollipop chicken wings, the won ton noodle soup and the BBQ spare ribs. Everything was good! I especially enjoyed the lollipop chicken wings. They are marinated overnight, deep fried, and then pan fried in a fantastic glaze!
The broth that come with the won ton noodle soup is really good and I would have been very happy to enjoy it just as it came. Jeff has a fun condiment tray he encouraged me to experiment and add even more flavor. I ended up adding the soy sauce with kelp, the white pepper, the chili in peanut oil, dried scallions and onions. Loved it! I t was fun to be be able to customize the flavors to my liking.
Oakland NOT San Francisco
Jeff moved to Portland Dec 31st 2013 to open this food cart and start a new life. Jeff moved from Oakland to Portland. One surprise that Jeff has that first Sunday morning that he was open, was that two of his dear friends, Tami and Eric drove up from Oakland to Portland to support Jeff and his new venture. I got to meet Tami and Eric. GR8 people!
Jeff is using recipes that he got from his mom – Lalie Chow. Jeff says that he is making his won tons just like she does! They are wonderful won tons.
