Hello again friends!
Did you know that your taste-buds are directly connected to your ear drums?
Well, maybe that’s not exactly true. But this week we’ll attempt to bring them a little closer together.
For those of you who aren’t too familiar with Portland, you might not be aware that our small city has become the Food Cart Capital of the United States. In certain areas of the city there are dozens of food carts to choose from, offering you everything from Hawaiian to Thai to BBQ to gourmet Burgers. And it seems like more are popping up every day!
The “Cart Scene” has received a lot of media attention in recent years, but the focus has mainly been on the trend itself.
We thought it would be nice to focus on the people behind the carts (well, technically they’re in the carts…). Why would someone start a food cart? Is it really as much fun as it looks? And why does food seem to taste so much better when you’re buying it in a parking lot?
We’ll answer all these questions and more, on this week’s edition of Organic City Sounds.
