Portland’s Vegan Food Cart Dirty Lettuce to Open Brick-and-Mortar Location
Comfort cuisine food cart—Dirty Lettuce—has brought Portland to its feet. Its Mississippi-driven vegan menu has solidified a loyal following in just a matter of months since opening in 2020, and now, owner Alkebulan Moroski has announced plans for a brick-and-mortar. Opening in late April 2021, the permanent restaurant will make roots on NE Fremont and offer an expanded menu thanks to the greatly enhanced space. While beloved for its veganized Cajun fare such as Southern-style greens and tofu fried chicken, Moroski intends to extend the offerings to include dishes from other cuisines like Korean barbecue or Italian-American hoagies.

Portland Gets a New Vegan Philly Cheesesteak Pop-Up
The Portland food cart scene is getting a taste of Philly cheesesteaks with the new vegan pop-up, Buddy’s Steaks. Launched by two Philadelphia transplants—Angela ‘Ang’ D’Occio and Buddy Richter—the concept was incepted on the duo’s two-year Portland anniversary. They spent the last year developing their recipe into something that wasn’t too heavy or overly chewy, as many seitan-based cheesesteaks tend to be. The final result is a TVP and seitan hybrid, sliced thin, topped by a homemade coconut and cashew gooey cheese to replicate the sandwich’s iconic Cheez Whiz.
