“Winter is a hard time for food carts.”
That sentence is an understatement. When the weather gets cold and and rainy we tend to want to be indoors eating. Many of the food cart pods (aside from the downtown pods) have created places where you can sit and eat, not only with a covering, but some with heaters. Several will even bring you your food when it’s ready so you don’t have to stand and wait. They are doing everything they can to make it worth your effort to come out.
Carte Blanche does all those things. She has a covered tent, with a heater and she brings your food to you when it’s ready. The other thing that is beautiful about her food is it’s warm and comforting. She changes her menu often, so what I ate might not be on your plate, but no matter what is on the menu, it will be amazing. I have tried so many different things and I have never been disappointed. I have brought numerous friends and everyone seems to love it. This is by far one of favorite food carts in Portland. I have said it before and I will say it again. Her food will literally sing in your mouth. The festival of flavors going on is mind boggling. Want to know what I really think, check out my post here and here and here. There are Vegitarian options and limited Vegan and Gluten Free options available, so be sure to ask.
So let’s get down to the good stuff. Carte Blanche is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner, that is to be used from now through February. Bring a friend because you can taste more things and you WILL want to taste more things. I’m not a dessert lover, but her desserts are pretty amazing, so plan on saving room for whatever she is offering.
